Comfort:
Silverstring
BBO
ALU

Control:
SS
ALU
BBO

Tension:
SS
ALU
BBO

Durability:
ALU
BBO
SS

Durability is a little skewed though because by the time either of the luxilons break, they feel like crap, wheras the silverstring plays well up until it breaks. So if you want when the string actually breaks, the above ranking is correct. but if you want actual amount of good play out of the strings, bump silverstring up to the top.

Wow matty you're thinking exactly like I am. I was trying to decide between these three also.

Anyone know what the stiffness rating is on the WCSS? I know it's 249 for the BBO and 242 for the ALU just wanted to know how the WCSS stacks up.

Protennis and Winther can you describe your playing styles? Since your rankings of the strings were so different I was wondering if playing style had something to do with it.

I've not used the SS but my ratings of the BBO and ALU would what Protennis63 listed. In the power category(not listed) I think I would give the nod to BBO.

I am an agressive baseline player. I hit hard, good amount of topspin and occasionally come to the net. One-handed backhand and I got a very penetrating slice. :)
