Description

The all new liquid crystalline polymer string, Luxilon Savage Black 127 offers enhanced control and spin over the professional tour favorite, ALU Power. Featuring a hexagonal cross section, this string bites the ball well for hard hitters wanting extreme topspin. The liquid crystalline polymer construction helps this string react best in the hands of strong players looking for excellent control. Savage Black 127 plays in between the ALU Power and the Big Banger Original in terms of stiffness, while offering the greatest spin of any Luxilon string. Our playtesters felt that this string outperformed Babolat's RPM Blast in terms of spin generation and had a softer feel. They appreciated the control they were getting from the baseline and felt they could swing out without fear and dictate play.  Recommended especially for strong, heavy topspin baseliners seeking a durable, control string that will generate even greater spin.

Luxilon Savage
4/5
I got this string strung on my Wilson Blx Blade Tour at 57 lbs. I had been using the Babolat RPM Blast 16 and Luxilon ALU Power Rough 16. I will say that the string ranks between RPM Blast and ALU Rough. It generates an ample amount of spin, but I was not feeling the ball bite as I had felt with ALU Rough. It is a step above the RPM Blast. My racquet is an 18x20 string pattern, so ball bite may not be like a 16x19 pattern racquet. Overall, it's a good string with great spin potential.

A very nice co-poly string, soft, responsive feeling poly that I prefer over RPM Blast, but ALU is still my favorite!

Good performer
4/5
Using in a Yonex Vcore 98 at 51 lbs. Ive been very pleased with this polymer strings performance so far. Does seem to work and bite into the ball for good spin, and has proven to be stable when hitting / returning hard shots. Great durability as would be expected of a poly, and does not move at all during hitting. Not as harsh as some other polys, but still a stiff poly feel that seems to worsen around the 15 hour mark of hitting.

I really liked the way this string helps produce some topspin & grabs on a short chop volley. Looks very sleek also on my K-zen racquet.

These are some of the softest poly strings I have used, from the first string I put threw a gromet to the first hit on the ball. Not as much spin as the RPM but the softer feel gives more control.

Great strings.

Ive used the Luxilon Big Banger, RPM Blast, and Adrenaline strings. Personally, I feel like the Savage is the BEST!!! Its doesnt kill my elbow like the Big Banger does and I feel like I get more power/spin with the Savage than the Adrenaline. The RPM blast was just dull to me. Im only using Luxilon Savage from now on.

1.33333333333/5
Purchased for my 14 year old grandson, and he loves them. Lots of spin and control. However, the Lime green set lasted about 5 hours playing time and the Black lasted about twice as long. Luxion needs to make in a 15 gauge or do something to enhance durability.P Jones

Great spin and easy power
5/5
I had been playing with RPM Blast 17 gauge but my coach suggested I try this string. I love it and my opponents hate it. I am getting tons of spin and easy power from my Prestige MP. It also seems to be holding tension better than RMP Blast. Great string! Top marks all around.

Great String if you like poly / spin with feel
5/5
This is the best poly string I have played. The feel is enhanced greatly over others, at least for me. I have much greater touch overall compared to Babolat Pro Hurricane or RPM Blast, which Ive used for several years, and the spin is similar. The Luxilon Savage string is not quite as durable as the Babolat, but then again, sometimes the Babolat was so durable that Id have to cut it out before it broke. When the Luxilon is dead, youll know it and youll break it shortly thereafter. Overall Luxilon Savage is probably slightly more durable than the average synthetic gut with great touch and spin. Im a fan.

Luxilon Black Savage
5/5
Purchase for my grandson, who plays junior tennis. First, the strings were in his Wilson rackets, but they didnt last for some reason. They would last about a week, but he changed to a Head and the strings last forever. Why, I do not know, but they put tons of topspin on the ball and that is what he wants.

5/5
Switched from Luxilon Spin to Savage Black 127 and glad I did! Same spin, but with a lot more comfort! The best things were that I did not have to change tension, and the price is much easier on the wallet. If you are looking for another performance string from Luxilon, look no further than Savage Black!

Savage Black 127
4.66666666667/5
Purchased for my teenager grandson, who plays junior tennis. He hits heavy topspin and will not use any other string. With a Wilson racquet, the strings would last a week, but he started using a Head and the strings last forever. Why, I do not know, but visiting with other parents, they experienced the same problem with the Wilson. PJones

5/5
This is my sixth set of Luxilon strings and I cant say enough good about them. The strings give me a great feeling and power combination without the ping pong paddle paddle some long lasting strings gave me. I play 3-4 times a week and my strings usually last about six months, hard to beat.
