A soft-playing durability oriented string. Rated #1 string for resistance to movement and #2, just behind kevlar in terms of durability according to a recent USRSA string playtest.
Construction: Composed of a soft poly-poly ether with aluminum fibers added, which give the string the durability you expect from a poly with greater power, playability, comfort and control.
Advantage: An economically priced poly string that has received surprisingly high praise from players of all levels. Great durability and playability...a desirable combination for frequent string breakers.
Gauges: 16 (1.30mm) & 17 (1.25mm)
Why we carry this string: Because it is a solid performing economy poly-based string that is competitively priced with similar products such as Topspin Cyber Flash. The Big Hitter Silver has received solid reviews as a lower cost alternative to Luxilon ALU. One playtester stated: "This is a nice poly string. It felt a lot like Luxilon ALU Power, but not quite as stiff. Dropping the tension 5% is key. I liked this string and would recommend it to advanced players looking to switch to a polyester string. - 5.5 male all-court player.
