If you're dead set on aluminum straights, I've got a pair or two of Susan Bates that have held up well.
Otherwise, if you're in the market for straights that are a little less slick than aluminum, but not as rough as bamboo, I love (love love) Lantern Moon
needles. I have a couple pair of the rosewood and ebony straights, and I adore them. They are well worth the price!
