Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
This string has very strong recoil memory and hurts your fingers during stringing. Softer polys like the SPPP are much easier to string.
Played indoors on hard court with Tretorn Z-Tour balls. Overall I liked the string, but it is relative when you consider the price.

Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power 16L
Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
The TiMo is a very stiff string. It provides good power and tension stability, but it is stiffer than the Alu Power and thus doesn't provide as much feel. I'm not happy with the comfort of such an expensive string. For example I like the Pro's Pro Cyber Power better and a reel of the Cyber Power costs as much as 3 sets of the TiMo...

In summary, way too expensive for what you get.

Alright from the baseline, but really poor for volleys. After 10-15 hours it doesn't break, but playability really decreases.

Average string at a very high price.

SPPP is a better string at half the price, in my opinion. Yes, the Ti-Mo LASTS longer, but playability is crap at that time.

If you are thinking about this string, I wholeheartedly recommend Topspin Cyberflash / Cyber Blue. It's better in just about every category at half the price.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
It is powerful almost in an uncomfortable way, as it requires lots of spin to keep the ball in - that being said it's not hard to produce that kind of spin. It's lots of fun going for angles and hitting high over the net at the same time.

I believe the tension that I picked was a little too high.
Satisfied? not sure
Compared to:
Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power 16L
Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
I see Alu Power as more of a clay/baseliner string and TiMo as a volley/doubles string, but also certain balls play better with one string than the other.
