Has anyone else tried the purple anniversary edition of Alu Power?

I bought a couple sets as regular silver Alu Power is my favorite match day string. Freshly strung, silver Alu is special. Buttery smooth, amazing control, power, and spin. It's really only special like that for a match, but it is amazing.

I picked up the purple for fun and it doesn't even seem like the same string. It plays like a cheap round poly. Didn't seem as slick as the silver. Not did it have the spin or power.

Anyone else player both silver and purple Alu Power?

Yes, dye that adds color makes the string feel different for some reason. I have no idea what or why that is. Kind of Odd though.. Purple is the one that GuGa won all those French opens with....and he was playing with Cheap feeling crappy poly ?????????
