Comments: Here's an update from 7/16 -- I strung the Prince Tour 100 16x18 at 54 lbs and the strings notched quickly after an 1 hour of hitting. Previously I strung it at 52 lbs and the mains haven't notched but the crosses did after 6 weeks in.

Comments: Strung in a Prince Tour 100 16x18 at 52-53 lbs in a full bed. It pockets the ball with control, has nice pop and is softer then Lux Big Banger. And the price is right. Tried the reel because I'm new to stringing. If you want more control, string the crosses 1-2 pounds tighter than the mains. Sweet hitting. Easy on the arm.

Comments: This has become my basic go-to string. Inexpensive (especially by the reel) and just a great all around poly with a nice mix of spin, control, comfort and tension maintanance. Works very well in softer racquets like the Yonex DR 98 or older Radicals (in 17 gauge) at 40-50 lbs. Good as a hybrid cross as well.

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.

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.
