Comments: I can't comment on durability since I'm not a string breaker but I have the 17 gauge on a new
Prince Classic 97 (strung at 52 lbs out of 50-60 pounds) and absolutely love it! I got the racquet in time for a grueling
tennis camp weekend and at the end of it the strings still felt fantastic and gripped the ball like god almighty! Definitely
elevated my spin game. I'm a 3.5 and play 3 times a month if I'm lucky so I don't expect to run into stretching or other
wear issues nearly as soon as other folks. That being said, at this price point there's no reason for me not to get it
restrung 2 -3 times a year to keep the love flowing.
From: Steve, 1/16
Comments: Without a doubt, one of the best price/performers on the market today. In reels this string is an
outstanding value and really has no downside. Easy to produce spin, nice controlled response and easy on the arm.
with ease even in a full bed. Plays very much like ALU Power without the higher cost and it plays much better over the life
string job. Can't go wrong with this for under $70.00 a reel. Love this stuff, I hope they never stop making it.
From: Steve, 11/13
Comments: This string is simply a steal at the current price point. I was happily using Lux ALU Power and
to give these a try. I have them in a full bed in a midplus frame at 52lbs and I am quite impressed. The feel was better than
expected - firm, but also quite comfortable for a poly (a little softer and overall it felt slightly better than the Luxilon). The
seemed about the same, tension maintenance and durability are also very good, easilly comparable to the ALU Power but
much lower price. You have nothing to lose to try these at this price - I think you may also become a believer. This may be
best all-around deal currently out there for those who use poly either in a hybrid or full bed setup. Lastly I also now prefer
to Pro Line II, which I also previously used a lot.
From: Tom, 11/12
Comments: Strung at 56 in a K6.1 95. I liked the soft feel (and easy to string!), but won't buy again.
Lasted approximately 40 minutes of hitting with my partner.
From: Will, 5/12
Comments: I have searched and searched for a string that I can play with, break on
time, and not get a sore wrist and elbow (typically from using a purely poly bed of strings). I have tried all the Luxilon
strings and nothing touches this string. This string holds the ball and gives me huge grab at the ball and the best pop
I've ever felt. Lasts for days of 6 hour sessions(although I clip every two days to keep tension) a must try for anyone
who can control this string. it ors great in my Head Youtek Prestige at 58 lbs.
From: Nico, 9/11
Comments: Nice feel to the string but this is not a durable string. Holds tension well had it in the mains
as a hybrid with a 16g syn gut and pops after only 4-5 hrs of play. I can get similar feel and much longer life in a
cheaper brand. Tried out the string but probably will not buy again. Now trying out a full set at about 57lbs in my
From: Jason, Conway, AR, USA, 03/11
Comments: This string is great. It maintains tension well and provides good ball bite, power and feel.
The only downside to this string for me was that I popped four main strings after four days of hitting.
From: Dan, East Bay, CA, USA, 12/10
Comments: I put this in the mains with Gamma Synthetic Gut 16 in the crosses. The thing that
impressed me the most about this setup was the control and feel I was getting. Spin was about average in comparison
to other polys I've played. It held tension pretty well for about 7 sets of tennis and then the Tourna poly was
completely stretched. Overall a pretty nice string and at a nice price.

NTRP Rating: 4.5
Comments: Great string been using it for two years now works wonders on my Wilson K factor k6.1 95
16/18 it has a lot of pop and hardly has any bite the strings only more sometimes when I'm putting enormous spin.
The 17 gauge is a much more better string because of the control and spin you get and it's also a durable string for the
price. I'll going to stick with this string for a long time.
From: Justin, Temecula, CA, USA, 08/10
Comments: I have tried the 16 gauge version of this string (also an excellent string for the money) and
also this string (17 gauge). What folks say about the 17 gauge in terms of having more playability is spot on and
makes this an excellent string. In addition, the fact it is also durable and plays much like Luxilon Alu Power makes this
string an excellent value. I have tried this string in the mains with Prince Synthetic Gut 16 with Duraflex in the crosses,
keeping both at the same tension, and the combination plays wonderfully. Since I generate most of my power I string it
at the high end and control and feel are excellent!

From: Jeff, North Carolina 01/10
Comments: This is the best string I have ever used amazing. It doesn't move at all! Holds tension great,
spin is crazy, and you can flatten it out whenever you want. Also, more feel than big banger and the durability is
From: Chris, Carlsbad, CA, USA. 05/09
Comments: I didn't know what to expect. I heard some good feedback, but took a chance and was totally
surprised. The spin was outstanding, and the feel was better than most polys. I've been playing with it for 4 matches
now, and it still hasn't lost its pop. Luxilon and others go dead so fast, just not worth it. Wish TW had reels!
From: Stephen, Chapel Hill, NC. 3/08
Comments: I used to be an avid user of the Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power Original, but it really blew a
hole in my wallet. Reading so many positive customer feedback on Unique Tourna Poly Big Hitter, I just had to give this
string a try since an earlier customer said that college players could not tell the difference between this string and
Luxilon. So what is my opinion of Poly Big Hitter? I honestly can't tell the difference either. This string can generate a
ton of spin, it feels soft and isn't bad for my elbow and I have just the right amount of power and plenty of control.
Seriously, for half the price of Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power, you gotta give this string a go. You'll be more than
impressed. What a bargain!
From: Robert, Sydney, NSW, Australia. 12/07
Comments: Exceptional value for a string indistinguishable from the Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power. The
string is conducive to producing controlled shots laced with power, and generating spin. Easy on the arm if you string
it at the lesser of 10% or 5 lbs from your usual stringing tension for a synthetic gut. Too bad TW does not have reels
From: SK, Mission Viejo, CA, USA. 10/07
Comments: I've been using this poly for a good 6 months now, and it is the nuts. I have used Luxilon
prior and Unique felt better. You can't go wrong with the price either! Top value for your money...
From: Vin, San Jose, CA, USA. 8/07
Comments: I know the stringer that strings for my college's men's tennis team Division I, and some of
the guys on the team use Luxilon BB ALU power. The stringer replaced the ALU power with Tourna Poly Big Hitter to see
if the players can tell a difference. Well, it fooled the players! Then I bought a pack and tried it and I am very impressed.
It's not a harsh at all, and it's firm and gives so much control. I strung it at 59/55 lbs on my M-fil 200 and I hit with
pretty good topspin, and after hitting with my friend for 3 days, NONE OF THE STRINGS MOVED, except the two mains
on the side. That is simply amazing. I am a 4.0 player. I would recommend the 17 gauge. Since the strings don't move
at all, going with the thinner version will give more spin and playability, and these strings seem really durable. I hope
TW will carry this in a reel and perhaps carry the 18g version, if it exists.
