Springy feeling string with good pop. Seemed to hold tension ok but broke pretty quickly. Overall played pretty well though. Definitely has a unique feel to it compared to what I am used to.

String Luxilon Big Banger Ace 18

Fantastic string for control, comfort and spin. Its most desireable characteristics for me are accuracy and touch. Durability is very good unless you are a big hitter and/or playing with big hitters. If you hit or hit with people with lots of pace it won't last. I absolutely love this string but can't afford to replace it after every 3 matches.

I am currently using this string for crosses in a hybrid with Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power in the mains. I recently went to the hybrid configuration. I previously played with Big Banger Ace. I loved the Ace but they did not last long enough for me (3 matches). This hybrid combination differs from the Ace in that it has more power and slightly less control. It has very good comfort and the loss of control and feel is an acceptable trade for the increase in durability. The Tecnifibre X-One Biphase does start to fray by the end of the first match but seems to be holding up the tension and continues to play well into 5th match.

I did not previously play with multi-filament so it is hard for me to offer a multifilament reference.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Serve and volley style in a Head Radical OS.
Nice soft feel. I string 2 lbs tighter to compensate for the initial tension loss. 2 to 3 weeks of playing 2 times a week until you hit the 2nd stage of tension loss. Then they must be replaced due to loss of tension, playability and control. This sting is capable of more spin than the current rating suggests.
A good string but I am in search of much better tension stability.
