Comments: I string for myself and others and I absolutely love this string to work with. It is a soft poly, that said, I
found it too soft to play with (I prefer Topspin Cyber Flash over this), but my doubles partner loves this stuff! Very similar to Lux
ALU Power -- very playable, recommended!

Comments: I've use Luxilon Big Banger before but it's just too pricey. Eventually, I settled with the 18g version of
this string with my Head Radical Youtek MP at about 58 lbs and was very happy with it. However, needed more pop as I'm getting
older, I switched to Head Radical Pro IG recently and the 18g just didn't work out. After cutting many strings later, I found that the
Big Hitter 16g at 48-52 lbs seem to be the magical setting, with right amount of control and power and tensile stability. Reading
the previous comments, I highly suggest folks to try it with lower tension value and see what happen next. At one point, I had it at
39 lbs but it was just out-of-control for me.
From: Ken, 6/13
Comments: It feels great at a high tension (16g@ 65 lbs in Extreme Pro) string bed was still comfortable and not
"boardy" and very controlled. On the downside I popped it in the middle of the racket within 4-5 hours - a record for me.
From: Anton, Staten Island, NY, 09/10
Comments: I recently tried this string. I was initially impressed by the spin generation and power strung at 60lb,
however it quickly lost tension which made it unbearable for my play (tension wise), after a week of heavy hitting my elbow was
starting to get sore (I'm 17 by the way). Pro Hurricane Tours held up the tension better and was easier on my elbow, but this string
definitely played better for cheaper.
From: Matthew, Andover, MN, USA, 07/10
Comments: I am a hard hitting competitive junior. This string is really nice overall, and very hard to break. The only
problem is that I find it losses it's tension very fast and feels lose after about 8 days of hard hitting.
From: Stephen, IN, USA. 05/10
Comments: I recently tried this string after seeing all the good reviews and due to the fact that I like string that has
good control and bite. and I gotta say, this string is really good! I use to play with ashaway crossfire and loved the bite and
control I got with kevlar but its just too dead and stiff for my 41 year old arm. I found this string to be much softer but it still
delivers on control, spin, power and touch. in fact, power is really amazing strung at 56 in my Wilson k tour 95. Brought my
racket back to life and I'm popping serves and groundies again. no break in either! very easy to string for a poly due to the fact
that it is pretty soft, doesn't kink, and has plenty of extra string to tie knots. I also have played with Signum ppp pure 16L and its
about the same. sppp has 10% more control and better tension maintenance but unique big hitter is about 10% softer and has
about 10% more power. so it comes down to do you want a softer, more powerful string that's also easy to string (big hitter) or
better control and tension maintenance but harder to string? (sppp) I play them both right now and couldn't be happier!

I string racquets and have been using this string for over 5 years it is as good if not better than pro hurricane or Luxilon for
comfort spin and playability. I play in tournaments 5.0 to 5.5 level and practice one hour a day every day
From: Jack Ont. Canada 01/10
Comments: This strings might be great for others but as for me, it isn't so great especially if you use a midsize
If you occasionally frame at 12 o'clock while playing with a midsize, it's just a matter of times before it breaks. I already broke
mine after only 8-10 hours with a 16g and 17g.
I strung hybrid so they are quite comfortable for your arms and joint. Playability is good but nothing spectacular.
From: Albert, Montreal, QC, Canada, 10/09
Comments: I love the feel of this string. My arm problems are gone. Do yourself a favor and
try this string. Best value for the price.
From: Nomo, Cal, USA 08/09
Comments: I wish they would produce this string in 16L but all I have to say is WOW! I was truly
impressed with the feel and spin. The the price is right. I am 5.5 player and used luxilon alu
power for the longest time. I have found my new string!
From: Nick, PA, USA 08/09
Comments: I string my own racquets and also string racquets for high school kids and other players in my town
and have been trying this string for about two months now. I have been using it to replace Luxilon Alu Power in varying hybrid
combination (usually with synthetic gut) and have to say that I (along with others) cannot tell a discernible difference between the
two in terms of overall playability. In fact, whereas the Luxilon starts going dead after a few hours of play, the Unique Tourna Poly
Big Hitter maintains its tension and playing characteristics. Compared with the cost of Luxilon, the Unique being about half the
price, anyone wanting the feel and playing characteristics of Luxilon while saving money would be better off using this string. A
great deal for the money!
From: Jeff, NC, USA, 07/09
Comments: I really don't see the point of dropping the tension like it says. Maybe a pound, but I didn't need it at all.
From: LK. 7/08
Comments: This is probably the softest of all polyester strings.
From: Kenneth, Scottsdale, Arizona, USA. 6/08
Comments: I've had the string for a few weeks now, and it has been working great. It is a softer string, but power
and control have been fine. It is a great deal, and I've liked it better than more expensive strings out there.
From: Lk, USA. 4/08
Comments: I am a Division 1 tennis player for a school in the Midwest, and our team uses the Big Hitter as our
string. I love it. It is extremely similarly to Luxilon's Big Banger, but I feel it is actually more forgiving on the arm, in addition to
having a little more feel. It's also extremely durable and takes a very long time to lose tension. Great bargain.
From: Brandon, Sheboygan, WI, USA, 11/07
Comments: I recently switched from Gamma Fusion to the Luxilon Big Banger which was an excellent choice for me.
I have tried multiple strings and tensions for a blend of power, control and tennis elbow relief. As a big fan of all Unique products,
I bought the Big Hitters to try them out. What an awesome string! Fantastic comfort, power and control and like the big bangers
the strings don't move. The two advantages are cost and in my opinion they seem even more durable than the big bangers.
From: Tarek, Mission Viejo, CA, USA, 05/07
Comments: This string is awesome. It gives you a good deal of power and control at the same time. The strings are
also quite durable and hold tension very well. If you're looking for a good quality poly string.
From: Thomas, San Jose, CA, USA. 2/06
Comments: This string is basically the first version of the Big Banger ALU
Power! This string
is also much cheaper. This string is an amazing string in terms of durability. For some
reason I think that the
Poly strings are much more playable after they are freshly strung, and this string holds
tension very well.
