Absolute Rating Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Fairly easy to string, can notch a little bit if you're not careful when pulling crosses. When playing with it I found this string to be pretty stiff, even though marketed as soft. I haven't tried the regular 4G so i can't compare. It played pretty solid though, decent spin , decent power when you really hit through the ball. I found it to have great control and a nice direct solid feel. It definitely felt thicker than 1.25 but that probably because of the stiffness of 4g. It did hold tension well and the longer i kept it in the racket it played better. It's a good string that can perform right until it breaks like most of the Luxilon strings. I liked this string but won't be using it anytime soon since I prefer luxilon Original if I want something stiffer and more solid.

Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power 16L
Durability Power Control Feel Comfort Spin Tension Stability
Not as powerful or spinny as Alu Power. But it holds tension better and doesn't move in the stringbed as much at lower tensions. Didn't have the liveliness you get from Alu Power but still a solid offering. I feel this string would work well in more powerful rackets.
