The Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power Ice Blue is one of the number one strings on tour today. Combining great durability with impressive power and amazing control, Luxilon has changed today's professional tennis forever. The co-poly with aluminum construction is a significant improvement over the first generation of polyester strings. The aluminum present in Big Banger ALU Power is unique to the Luxilon line, allowing greater repulsion and a softer feel. The co-poly construction allows the combination of material properties rarely seen before. In this string, it combines improved tension maintenance and provides greater elasticity for more power. Players are able to take full cuts while still maintaining a high level of control thanks to the generous spin potential. ALU Power is best suited to the player that prefers the baseline and takes fast, full swings looking to generate power and spin. Also available as Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power Silver.
Construction: Extruded Polyester Monofilament
Color: Ice Blue
Gauge: 16 L / 1.25 mm

Luxilon Big Banger Blue 16g
These strings are just as advertised. They have good feel and control. The power generated is very good. I have them strung at 60 lbs... we will see how long they last. Overall a good string for the price.
Luxilon Big Banger ICE BLUE
This string is SOOO good. It is 200% worth the cost. As you all know, millions of players use this string in the mains and a softer synthetic in the crosses (NXT PRO 16) (personal choice). It is a stable string. It doesn't move much and holds its tension for a decent time. DO NOT string higher than 55 if you have elbow problems. I use it for its durability. I string it at 57 and when I first use it, I have the greatest control in the world, and luckily I have a strong elbow, so i don't feel pain, but after maybe 6 solid hours of playing, I guess the tension drops down to a constant (around 55 or below) and then I can use it at that tension w/o worrying about anymore changes in tension, until it breaks (which it WON'T)
I have two sons who play tennis. They gave me their Christmas gift requests at the last minute...as usual. What a convenience to order from Tennis Express...and have it arrive at my doorstep in a couple of days! Beats fighting traffic and mall shoppers any day.

The best string
Actually this is the best String. I have Babolat PureDrive GT + A Roddick. The tension I use is 57lbs. Very resistent and confortable at court. Good control and spin. Nice durability too. I tried RPM Blast and ProHurricane but this one are superior!

I have been using these strings for the last 2 years. I do not have to keep adjusting them after each point. They tend to fall back in its original position. They might be hard on tennis elbow for some players but I have not felt this at all.
theese strings are the best strings i have ever had. every one should get theese strings if they like power and spin.
Outstanding string! Performs as advertised. Increases power without impacting control. Strings dont slide apart after contact and allow for a good amount of spin.
I am extremely happy with Luxilon. They retain the tension so well and gives a very comfortable feeling every time you hit the ball.
I hybrid this string in the mains with Wilson NXT in the crosses and it gives the best of both worlds. Very satisfied with the feel and power of this setup.
Great, durable string
Ever since I switched over to Lux, I certainly do not regret it. Not only is it extremely durable - the only time I ever need to restring is when my cross strings break, which are a multifilament synthetic - but it allows me to cut through the ball really well and get the extra kick on my shots that I need. Combined with a hybrid string, this makes for a good setup. Highly recommended.
Great durable strings. Enjoined playng with it.
Great fill, good control. Lasted long and preserved tension.
Would definitely recommend.
Great strings. Good strength and is holding up longer than I thought it would. I always use this string so I would recommend this to everyone
Will recommend to a friend
These are the best strings. Ordered them from this website and was very pleased with the service. Strings arrived very fast. Customer service was great, answered all my questions and were very helpful
Big Banger ALU Power 16L Blue strings
These strings were superb for touch especially for a polyster strings and the durability was insane. In my opinon, better than pro hurricane tour, rpm blast, solinco tour bite soft all of which I broke within 6 hrs of play time. Also these strings were very playable and did not have as much of the typical dead feeling of polyster strings and it also allowed for fast swing speeds without fear of trampolining the ball out. Overall, this was truly an amazing string. However, one thing this string lacked was spin potential. I felt like this string put considerably less topspin/slice than I would have liked.
Big Banger ALU Power string
Great string,no movement at all,even after hard hitting.
Lot of power descent top spin.played 2 weeks ,no loss of tension.
If base line player with long hard hitting game this string is for you.
BIG BANGER ALU POWER 16L BLUE STRING
Love this string. Im a 3.5 flat-ball hitting player using an 115 sq.in. Prince racquet. I can hit all-out and most of my shots will land near the baseline. My racquet is rated 65 lb+/-5 lbs. I request at 67 lbs and the stringer deducts 10% so its strung at about 62lbs. The string adds more power, some topspin to my game. Touch, not so much. Although the blue is supposed to be the same as the silver version, the blue feels softer and is easier on my wrist. Also lasts a long time, for me 6 months. Yes it does lose tension, but my game seems to adjust to it.
This is a great choice and a used by many who play on tour. I have persuaded a few of my friends to switch over the years, they all liked it. It will put sizzle on your strokes.
Good for spin
Great contact on top spin and slices. The blue strings look cool with Babolat Power drive
