Description

Luxilon Big Banger Original Rough 16 features a textured surface for greater spin potential.  The rough version of this string will feel slightly stiffer compared to Big Banger Original. Providing less power and more durability than ALU Power, the stiffer feel is preferred by pure power baseliners. One of the first co-polyester strings to be constructed, Big Banger Original Rough 16 provides better feel and tension maintenance comapred to first generation polyester strings. The low power level of this string makes it an ideal choice for baseliners who take full cuts at the ball and rely on generating spin to control the depth of their shots. Best suited to advanced level players seeking a durable, control string with decent feel and power.

Construction: Extruded polyester monofilament
Color: Natural
Gauge: 1.30mm

Excellent string and excellent durability. A little harsh when volleying and can be harsh on the hand and wrists. Excellent spin and power potential.

GREAT STRINGS. THEY LAST FOREVER AND NEVER MOVE. DO NOT STRING TOO TIGHT OR YOUR ARM WILL FEEL IT. YOU MUST GENERATE YOUR OWN POWER WITH THIS STRING.

I have used many brands of string for the past 10 years. For the past 3 years, my daughter and I have used Luxilon Big Banger Original, and we have been very happy. String provides greater spin, control, and it's durable.

Luxilon Big Banger - Original - rough
4.33333333333/5
Let me first state that these are great strings and get amazing spin and very good control. String these at 50 - 55 pounds for more spin and a little extra pop. The only downside to this type of Luxilon string (Orginial Rough) is that it's difficult to find in large reels, and it becomes very expensive when just buying sets good for one racquet. Overall, great strings, just like most Luxilon strings.

Love the string, adds great spin and control. However I string my raquets extremely tight and with this string, strung that tight Im haveing some arm problems. I will try it again at a lower tension and see what happens.

Review Big Banger Original Rough 16 String
3.33333333333/5
I have been using Luxilon Big Banger Original Rough 16 for more than one year because it is great string for spin and control. In term of durability, I would rate it low. I play 5-time a week each time 1.5 to 2.0 hour, and I have to replace the string every two week. It is becoming costly!

Original rough was the first Luxilon string I had ever purchased and it improved my game significantly. Shots that were normally a foot out were always hitting the lines or just inside. Im a heavy hitter that wants a bit more bite and touch/feel from a good poly. This was my answer and Ive tried others and wouldnt trade this string for anything. I use a hybrid of Babolat Syn Gut 16 and this and its been one great combo in my racquet Babolat Pure Drive Cortex +. The tension holds thru 2-3 weeks of heavy hitting and I dont get the fraying we all hate!

luxilon rough in my crosses seems to keep my string bed stable and last longer between stringing. The roughness of the string seems to give my more bight on the ball and thus the better spin. I use wilson nxt17 on the mains

5/5
In my younger days, I was playing USTA 4.5 level and was getting ready to make the jump to 5.0 when life happened. I left tennis behind for 17 years and Im back playing again now for the last year and a half. I find myself in the same position I was in 17 years ago - trying to make the 5.0 level. When youre away from the game that long and you come back in, you dont get a chance to grow with the technology - it is overwhelming. I am an old school player who learned to hit with tight strings and a heavy racket Prince Graphite Oversize with Leoina 66 15 gauge strung at 70 lbs. Now Im using a lighter racket Prince Tour 100 16 X 18 and searching for the perfect string and tension. I string my own rackets so using and changing strings is not an issue. So far, the problem Ive found with poly strings is they feel like a board when you string them tight. If you have shoulder/elbow issues, I suggest not using poly strings if you like your strings tight.

Spin, Control, Durability
4/5
I have an aeropro gt and play with a 3/4 western. I have always looked for a decently durable string that still offers spin and control. This string feels like a total package in that regards. I have decent control, maybe not as good as the ALU, but these last longer than the ALU line. I loved the ALU rough, but it just lost its wow factor after a couple hitting sessions. This string is still going strong. I strung this @ 55lbsfull bedand although there is tension loss, the strings are not moving around. If you want a string that will offer access to spin, durability, and control, but is not per sey outstanding in any one category, and want an all around decent string, this may be the string for you. The only caution I say, but it goes for most polys these days, is the comfort. I would say its a little below average, but this is not a factor for me.

These strings are a bit stiff I use them on both cross and main though.... But they are ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!! I use the babolat aero pro drive gt. started at 55 pounds and gradually settled I hope at 60lbs. LOVE these. I also think theyre better than the new 4g string by Luxilon.
