    Only difference I know of besides the color is that the ALU power is a SLIGHTLY thinner string. It is 16.5 gauge vs 16.

    Everytime I get a fresh string job I always go back to the Original. I consder trying the other stuff everytime, but just don't for some reason. I guess I feel like I do not want more power. I think the Luxilon Original does not give more power than any other string I've used, less if anything. That is with lowered tension too...

    I would say start with the Original and see what you think... I may try the other stuff next time.

    I usually use the BB Alu Power Rough....which is said to have less power than the BB Alu power but more spin. This time i strung with the BB Original. It's a thick string to say the least. High durability but I cannot seem to put the same amount of spin on the ball as I did with the rough. It also seemed a little more powerful than the Alu Power roughs. Both times were strung at 58lbs. I'd say the Alu Power is more comfortable also.
