We have another new playtester here with us at Tennis Warehouse, Marco Comuzzo.

He helps create web content for our sister company, Tennis Only, down in Perth, Australia. Marco hails from New Zealand and grew up playing junior tennis down there before heading to California for college at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.
With a new year comes new playtesters! If you haven’t noticed on some of our more recent racquet and shoe reviews, Sebastian Hafner has joined our playtesting team in January 2015. He played college tennis at Fresno State and then transferred to Rollins College in Florida. Sebastian is currently in our Web Editing department helping create content for Tennis Warehouse and Tennis Warehouse Europe. Sebastian grew up and played junior tennis in Germany.
With a large following on the pro tour as well as with competitive recreational players, the Luxilon ALU Power line is introducing another string into the family this month, Luxilon ALU Power Soft. As its name alludes, it is a tad softer than ALU Power and offers excellent control, durability and spin potential. Chris and I took this string out for a several week playtest and found the string offered a crisp, medium firmness feel and a consistent response. We were most impressed by the durability as after 2-3 weeks, we had plenty of life left. We did find the string to be low powered and would recommend it to big hitters who want to be able to play offensively with accuracy. Check out the video above right now for our complete thoughts and look for the written review when the product launches.
- Low Powered
- Too firm and underpowered for beginners
