This seems like a great alternative if someone wants an all smooth set up.
I used to use VS mains KB Max Power smooth crosses, then tried the ALU Rough, no comparison for me. I'm okay my gut selection. Now just curious about ALU Rough alternatives.
I could do a smaller gauge in the KB Rough, say 18, but I wonder if that would saw more into the gut mains? Someone mentioned Tourna Big Hitter Blue Rough, any other similar "rough" strings someone can recommend?
Stiffness is a measure of deflection. The farther a string deflects when struck with a blow the softer the string the less it deflects the stiffer. ALU Soft also has a lower string to string COF so being a softer string with less friction against the mains it deflects farther and the more it deflects the greater the spin. Because the String COF is lower it should give you more durability at the same time.
