Luxilon Big Bangers FTW, they are great if you are a big hitter . I switched to them two years ago, and haven't turned back. The spin I get off of them is fantastic. It also retains control even though I have a pretty long and fast swing.

For the record I always have one racket at 58 and one at 56.
I've used Big Banger ALU POWER in my Babolat Pure Drive for 10+ years now and LOVE IT!!

I have just recently change to Big Banger ALU POWER SPIN and am loving it... The extra spin I can create on my shots now are really good. I've always been a huge fan of Luxilon for years!!

Re: Recommend a type of strings!

Has anyone tried the Wilson Red 16 strings?

I am thinking about ordering some because I am a very hard ballbasher that is trying to get spin. I have been looking at babolat RPM 16 as well. what is the difference between the 16G and the 17G

Having the Nadal strings put in today to see what they are like. 63P combined with the strings could have some great results

Re: Recommend a type of strings!

hi guys I have always used prince syn gut...never really tried other strings...so is prince syn gut more on the playability side or durability or both? is it more toward lower price bracket or mid level? just want to know about this string and decide which string I want to try next..any recommendations? what string that's similar feel to prince syn gut? thanks guys

When they string the racquet they should always tie it with 4 knots? this place only did 2 knots...and it's pretty loose now...other than the knots how do you know if they are good at string racquet or not?

last question this store they got prince syn gut but it got a lot of dust on it...seems like it had been on the shelf for awhile...does string get worse when they are on the shelf for year? or no problem? thanks

Re: Recommend a type of strings!

I had Dunlop Silk which was the default string on the Dunlop 300 plus racquet which I bought. I would rate it high on playability, but it moved a lot and after 4-5 weeks I had to change it because it was totally frayed.

I have Dunlop explosive in the crosses, and Head RipControl on my mains which has made it quite a good combination of spin, control, power and durability so far.

Head RipControl is textured which helps to add spin to the ball, does anybody know of any similar strings in the Luxilon brand?

Prince Syn gut is a value brand and like most Syn guts is a mix of durability and feel. Personally I swear by full poly string job.
Hybrid will be strung with 4 knots. Other string jobs can be 2 or 4 knots depending on the racquet.
I think 4 knots has potential to be more loose if the starting knot of the crosses isn't done properly.

Anyone used Tecnifibre X-One Biphase before? Is it good for hitting flat?

Re: Recommend a type of strings!

I have not played with this string, but it seems to have nothing but positive reviews all over the web. Have a look at the reviews in Stringforum, where it has been chosen as the Non-poly of the year 2012.

Yep, i liked this string since i'm also a flat hitter played with it for about a year.

Yonex Poly Tour Pro Yellow (Kirilenko's strings) is actually quite nice, though I swear by my current setup of Natural gut + RPM Blast.

Re: Recommend a type of strings!

Luxilon 4G is amazing gives so much extra spin and control with out compromising pace of shot. It's so good

Re: Recommend a type of strings!

Wow it is good to know. I have been really curious to know how it plays.
I am using Volkl Cyclone now and it is great, I have never had so much control with any other string so far. I should give 4G a try as soon as the local stringer gets a reel of it.

More so than Luxilon Spin? I'm on the market for some strings that do exactly this. I hit a pretty flat hard ball and I need some more spin to keep my shots in the court more often. Playing with Luxilon spin for years. Any other suggestions. I use BLX Blade 98 if that helps.
