I love this string but its effect on my elbow/bicep is just too much. I thought the pain I was getting could be due to a weak rotator cuff. I did switch to Pro Hurricane and the pain went away. But also the control and pop I was getting on my serve was less with the PH string. I just tried the ALU again after about 4 months using PH and right away the pain came back. Even though I love the string I just can't use it.

Big Banger Alu Power is awesome right out of the gun after a good warmup. Great control, good spin, if it didn't become dead after a few sets I'd never use anything else. I bought a stringer so that I could afford using it, but still it's expensive but worth the playability until I have to cut it out. I never string more than 2 rackets at a time so as not to lose any playability time.

This string plays similar to RPM BLAST 16 for me except that RPM BLAST becomes springy after 4 hours and BBAP16L just feels dead.

I have to say that my first 2-3 hours play with this string was pure heaven - you will not find any multi or poly that can compare to this one. You can hit any shot and spin will force the ball to land within baseline and it has some nasty pop so you can hit hard flat ball - EXCELLENT string for those who can restring each 3 hours as after those 3 hrs, it will lose all spin it had before and it becomes baseball bat.

At first I was really amazed by the amount of power I could generate with the Alu Power. However I had strung too low so many balls went long. I refrained from trying the string at a higher tension because after a few hours I had pain in my arm which I didn't have when using my other frame.
Nevertheless the Alu Power is a great string, even if the comfort was very bad for me.
