The #1 String for Spin Potential according to USRSA playtesting! Bringing even greater spin potential than its thicker version, Tourna Big Hitter Blue Rough 17 provides excellent performance at a moderate price. Using the same poly-poly ether composition as the original Big Hitter, this string features a significant textured surface to enhance ball bite and create even greater spin. One of the few strings to utilize aluminum fibers, Big Hitter Rough possesses surprising resiliency and power from a typically stiffer string construction. This string still places its primary concerns on durability, control, and additionally spin allowing players to swing freely from the baseline without fear. The German engineered string placed highly in tension maintenance and resistance to string movement. Due to the stiffness and good tension maintenance, it is recommended to string this one 5-10% lower than normal. So if you are a baseline player searching for a durable string to create tons of spin to place your powerful groundstrokes, give this one a try.  The thinner gauge of this string gives enhanced spin and feel, but makes it slightly less durable than the 16 gauge version.

 

Composition: Extruded Poly-Poly ether monofilament

Color: Blue

Gauge: 1.25 mm (17g)

Length: 12.2 m (40 ft)

Incredible Spin!
5/5
I tried this string because I wanted something cheaper than my usual ALU Rough. It was just getting too expensive and I'm shocked that I am just now hearing about this string. My normal hitting partner actually hopes my first serve goes in because he doesn't want to face my kick second serve anymore.

great strings
5/5
I purchased this string because i love hitting a deep ball to the baseline with spin on it, and i dont know how it works but 80% of my deep balls are in due to this great string, and tennis express is an awesome company to buy from, the shipping is always early, and there customer service is 2nd to none, I will always buy from this company and refer my friends here as well.

Powerful @ low tension
4.66666666667/5
When stringing in a full bed of BHBR, use low tensions to get the most of the effect rec level players. A softer polyester that Ive tried, very pleased with the spin production. As a polyester can go, this would be an arm friendly one no polyester is very arm friendly!. Powerful polyester, BHSR probably will be better for those looking for greater control capability.

My son is a left handed hard hitter and had trouble with his strings breaking. Had a suggestion at the state tennis tourney from another player to try this string and he loves it!
