The Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power Silver combines great durability with impressive power and amazing control. The string improves on the first generation line of polyester strings by using a co-poly construction with aluminum. The aluminum present in Big Banger ALU Power is unique to the Luxilon line, giving the string a softer feel and more playability.

The Luxilon line of strings has forever changed today`s professional tennis. It allows players of all levels to take full cuts, creating generous amounts of spin without a loss of control. ALU Power is best suited to the player that prefers the baseline and takes fast, full swings looking to generate power and spin. The string of choice for players such as Fernando Gonzalez, Jelena Jankovic, and Juan Matrin Del Potro. Also available as Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power Blue.

Tennis Express Reviews
I serve hard with a lot of spin. I play hard flat shots plus I'm heavy on top spin shots. This string lasts long, so I can compromise a bit on control and play to what it allows me to. Overall I enjoy a power game with this string. I will go with it for a long time.
I put these strings on a Wilson Kobra Team FX racquet. I can hit the ball with a lot of topspin and generate a lot of power and still keep the ball on the court. I can get nice kick on my serve as well. They also have nice feel & touch. I had the tension strung at 58. Next time I will have it strung around 55. These are quality strings and I highly recommend them!
Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power String
My son likes this string very much. It gives him power and control and seems to last a bit longer than some of the other strings.
Excellent blend of power & control
I love this string! I'm a 3.5+ player using an older Head Liquidmetal 4 racquet and I have it strung at 57 pounds. This string gives me excellent top spin control, but with nice pop too. Durability was also better than I expected. I'm currently playing my best tennis ever and this string has certainly helped.

Best strings I have ever played with. Good durability, excellent feel & power. They are a little tough to string due to how stiff they are, but worth the effort.
I found these strings to have very nice pop, spin, and durabiity, however I had to get use to the lower tension usually recommended with these types of stings. Overall, after hitting for two days I would definitely buy these strings again.
Great strings! Last me about 3-4 weeks depending on the variation of how much i play. A lot of spin and control with the strings; also a good amount of power.
Great string and Durable
I have played the original Big Banger string on my old sticks but with a new Volkl Power Bridge 10 purchase i decided to give the Big Banger ALU a try. So far i am very pleased with the ability to access lots of spin with either topspin or a underspin backhand. It creates alot of pace when you flatten it out as well. I seem to have better pinpoint control on my groundies as well. The serve has more bite on kick serves and as always Big Banger strings are bulletproof. They last a long long time!! Very impressed and my string of choice.

Nice control, comfort, spin and durabillity. I used to play with Babolat ProHurricane, RPM Blast but this one are better than this ones. I use 57lbs. in Babolat Pure Drive GT+ Roddick. Excellent for baseline play.
Big Banger Strings by Luxilon
Ive been playing with the Luxilon strings for a few months now and they are great. The ball control is greatly improved with increased power. In particular, I have noticed a significant change in the serve which I really needed!
Power and Control
The Big Banger ALU Power string is great for big hitters. It allows you to take full cuts at the ball and have it drop in the court. This string does not sling shot the ball off of the string bed the way some other polyester strings do. For that reason alone it should be the top choice of string for the ATP and WTA tours.

These strings are great, they last a little bit longer than the rough version. I bought 10 sets. These strings perform like no other poly I have tried and also I string for my friends and teammates. They love the strings too.
I like this string because it gives you lots of spin and power and still stays in the court. It seems to last longer than other brands Ive used. I would recommend this string.
Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power
It is a very good string for hybrids. It gives lots of power and conrol. Overall, it is a very good string.
Simply put, the best!
Strung alot of racquets and this is all I use personally as well as for others and in my opinion its better than any other string out there except maybe some awesome $75.00 natural gut. It wont last more than a few times of play and dollar for dollar you cant beat Luxilon Alu Power 16L! No I dont work for the company, I just love their string. It outlasts, outplays, still has alot of feel, and strings dont move around at all. Ive been using it for years and will continue to recommend this string to all that I encounter. A very satisfied customer, thank you!
These strings have only been bliss! Theyre solid, and they provide plenty of top spin. Top quality!
Stringing rackets for a business, I have to keep Luxilon in stock because it is by far the most popular string requested by all my clients. They immediately feel an improvement in their performance with this string. They have better control and power with each stroke. This string has never disappointed and is consistently a winner.
My sons strings were breaking often. We tried a new one Luxilon from Tennis Express as suggested by their staff. The suggestion has been really good. This strings lasts longer than the previous one. Hope we have a solution to our problem with the strings.
more bang for your buck
I have used these strings over the past few years with a great admiration for them. The strength of these strings provides the reliability of not popping on a regular basis as I experienced with some others. Living in Houston and leaving the racquet in the car is a brutal wake up call for the strings. With the heat and humidity they are subjected to and the pounding they receive when being played with regularly the strands withstand the tests superbly. The durability comes at a great value.

Big banger string 16 gage
Has a nice fill when I hit the ball. Still getting used to the power control when playing I will most likely buy some more. Like the color of grey.
Luxilong ALU Power
A powerful string that doesnt lose tension. A little on the stiff side, but able to pack a punch.
Big Baner ALU Power 16L String
My daughter says she loves these strings. Follow directions on package to reduce tension appropriately. Strings are lasting about 1.5 weeks and that is great for her.
Alu Power Ice
Great string. Amazing touch and feel. Not too harsh if strung low, but be careful if strung at higher tensions.
Big Banger doesnt hold up
I bought this to string in my sons Wilson Six.One Team. Hes 10 and he breaks strings alot. We were recommended this string as something that should hold up. I will say the performance was good. Spin, control, power all were comparable to some other top polys hes used, but he broke it in 2 places in one week. Too expensive for one week of play. Weve gone back to Gamma Zo Dart 16 as it has had the best durability 4-5 weeks and other good attributes. Will not buy this string again.
these are the only strings we use in college, hs and advanced players, great feel control and power
Great product. ordered new racquet and strings. very happy.
Super strings. Super stringing job!
Good for top spin and ball control. Found it much durable than Babolat rpm blast strings.
Very Good String!!
I have this string on my Pacific X Feel Pro, tensioned at 52 lbs. this string produced plenty of power and spin on my groundstrokes, serves, and especially slice. Thanks tennis express
I believe the ALU line is really good, but only for a couple of days. They were strung in an aeropro GT @ 55 lbs. When I first tried them I noticed how amazing the control was and was pleased with the spin as well. I thought these would be my go to strings. After a third hitting session2 hrs each These strings lost their pop/feel and they were just never the same. The longevity of these strings are not impressive to me. If you have money to spend to re-string often they are worth it though. I will be sticking to Big Banger Original Rough. Those looking for longevity while still keeping the qualities of Luxilon, I suggest you try them.
My Favorite Brand of Strings
I play with a lot of topspin and I feel that the Luxilon Alu Power goes hand in hand with my type of game, giving enough power and control over my shots. Also, I felt that theyre more durable than other strings I tried. I definitely recommend going over a low tension I use 52-53 when the recommended range is 55-62 since they are stiff strings and lose tension over time.
I use it for both mains and crosses at 52 lbs and love it. Only downside is that durability is extremely poor.
Easy power and durable strings
I am 55 and play 4.5 with old school swings and 1 handed backhand. My game is physical with long med-fast swings for a club player. This string provides very easy power and reasonable spin with little vibration to the elbow. I have been looking at other strings to help increase spin and control and despite all the different reviews and maybe because I am not good enough to notice the difference is minor. While the modern strings of today certainly help with spin, I find it hard to gauge the difference and now recognize that the spin will have more to do with my technique and racquet head speed than the string. This string is very durable and keeps its tension well for a very long time. While I dont find much difference in spin generation between strings, I do notice the power and the jump the ball has off the racquet with this string vs others.
