New Luxilon String?

#15
Oh - new colors! I'm sure that means the old, super boring standard Alu Power goes on sale for half price then, Luxilon? Thanks!!

I am thinking green is going to be a big seller as long as it plays like the original and not the purple or blue version. The ice blue plays soft/muted and the grey plays more lively but not crispy. If green plays like grey, watch out for players who play Hyper G or Cyclone possibly switching. It’s hard, though. Solinco has a hold on a lot of juniors and collegiate players. Just two weeks ago I saw four players in ACU’s top 6 using Hyper G and one that may have been using Tour Bite - possibly a 5th player. Some interesting colors no doubt.

Hopefully Luxilon is sending all colors for two to three TW playtesters to try in their preferred sticks. I’d love to demo the blue and green colors; they match my EZONE 98 and 98+.

Strung 3 colors yesterday
same rakets, same tension (48/45 lbs)

lime no issue, tipical poly
red no issue, easiest to string, soft feel poly on hand
blue squeeked alot (due to higher friction I'm guessing, from first/last cross), during fanning, similar exp. Stringing babo.hurr.tour.. weird..

hit same day, 1set of doubles each,, used in same sequence as strung-up
first feel impression,
lime medium stiffness feel of the 3
red lowest stiffness feel of the 3
blue highest stiffness feel of the 3

good control, good spin, lower power polys, as expected from lux strings,,
cant comment on how it compares to original,, too long since ive hit with it.,

Ive had 3 more hitting sessions with these strings
Feel is def. Closer now, but I still feel:
red-softest,
lime-mefium.stiff,
Blue-crisper of the bunch

all playing very close, performance wise,,

at some point, ill try silver and green,, but who knows when..
overall though, good string from lux, as expected.. I think this is gonna be good for the brand..

I want these in 1.20 mm, will that ever happen ?

A second opinion, and more feedback would give you/me a clearer picture,,
last time I tried alu.power.original was about 2+ years ago
Cant begin to recall,,
1.20mm?! Who knows..

Chris said in the video he is looking for some really good new playability out of these new colors... Seriously , is it really that different from the Original Alu power ?
I'm sure they re-invented the wheel and these strings are going to mark the next level of tennis equipment.


not

Last update from me on these new colors
ive hit with them about a month, their coming off tomorrow,,
tonight I hit 3sets doubles
Throughout the month test I was watching for major differences; only diff. Is the stiffness,, here is what I felt:

blue is the stiffer of the 3 colors (blue, lime, red)
lime is second stiffest
red is the softest
