Strung on a Prince Neos 1000 with Wise Tension Head. 4 knots.
Played indoors on slow, soft hardcourt surface with Wilson US Open balls and Tretorn Series + balls.

In the dense string pattern of the 18x20 head, this string is good to a beginning, but when the tension and elasticity softens up, the string is not my cup of tea. If I were to use this string, I would use it 5-7 hours and then restring.

Same type of string as the MSV Focus Hex. A tad better feel but also loses tension a bit quicker.

Very nice string, easy to string. Only drawback is the lack of ball bite. I lacked spin in my shots.

Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability

Very positive test of this string. Very soft feel. Good control, even at lower tension, and good spin and power.

Played indoors on both carpet and hardcourt with Wilson US Open balls.

Another note is the cool design of this string. Its twisted in black and light grey/silver and turns into a very cool design. Hard to get a visible logo on the strings though. Only color that will work is yellow.

Much more comfortable string compared to Focus Hex. Only downside is the spin compared to the ruff Focus Hex that bites the ball better then RPM Dual.

Nice string with good control but I felt it lacked a tad spin potential. Try a thinner gauge in this string if you have tighter string pattern.

n.a.
Thanks for the possibility to try this string!
String broke after 3 hours of play on a mishit... The string was performing pretty nice up until that point though with good control and decent power. Did not get a good groove with the spin though and I felt it was a tad hard on the arm.

I am very satisfied with this string, but it was not all the time like that. It took a couple of sessions before I got into this string and now I am fully used to the unique feeling of it.

It has very nice power yet very much control. The string bites the ball and throws it back with amazing spin.

Durability is like all other of this string category, no subject because it hardly ever breaks in a 18/20 racquet.

I now use this string full time and it is amazing how superior this string is to the rest of the strings on the market right now.

Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power 16L

A totally unique string. Have not found a string similar to it.
This string feels much more comfortable than Alu Power. It also has more spin and feel but not quite the same power potential (in a good way) that the Alu Power has.
