View Full Version : best Luxilon-ALU type string for the money

ALU is good but way too pricy. Which string would you rate as a better value. I'm currently using Ashaway monogut but I see there are tons of new strings available lately. I haven't played in over a year so I'm curious to see if there was a better value out there today.

Thanks and happy tennis.

Hmmmm, well, a few strings I'd have you try are Kirschbaum Super Smash, SPPP, Cyber Flash, and Babolat PHT

Try kirshbaum super spiky and topspin cyberflash both fantastic polys and inexpensive compared to BB.

WeissCannon SIlverstring is the top alternative for the money.

I've played most of the strings that are similar but less expensive. Topspin Cyberflash rates highly with me. I haven't tried the Pro Supex Big Ace or the Unique Big hitter but they are supposed to be nice.

Another vote for a Kirschbaum supersmash. It is basically the German version of Luxilon. Very good quality strings.

Durability is also really good, i'm a pretty big hitter and it lasted me 2-3 months.
