    I've played with both, and they feel eerily similar, and I've also talked to the stringer at my local club, he also says that they're both "exactly the same string, but in different gauges" (verbatim). Has anyone experienced this? How do your experiences with BB Original compare to your experiences with ALU Power?

    Restocking, def not the same string. ALU is has a good deal more of a pop off the stringbed and also does not hold tension as well as BBO. I think the spin is similar but the power level is a good deal higher in alu.

    One hit of the ball is all you need to tell the difference.

    No offense to the stringer at your club but I never ceased to be amazed at the lack of knowledge by many of these so called experts. My stringer for example loves natural gut and has been telling me for years that poly's are horrible strings.
