PHT 17g and Black Code 17g are my favorites.

Got a reel of Pro Supex Big Ace 17g coming my way :) Heard good reviews about it and the price was relatively cheap, so hopefully it'll be worth my money.

BB Alu Power and Rough are fantastic with something like an NXT 16 - definitely my fave setup for personal racquets. Is in the upper price range but well worth it IMO. Wouldn't recommend a full bed of Alu power or rough though, a lot of people find it very rough on the arm.

Hurricane and Prince synth gut is the next best combo that is put on most of our demo's - cheaper to string and a very good set up.

Genesis Black Magic > Luxilon Alu Power Rough

haven't tried Genesis Spin X yet however, and its supposed to be better than Black Magic!

rough is a very addicting string!
especially right after it's freshly strung, but unfortunately the feeling lasts only for a week, a week and a half at most then it goes dead!
i'm still trying to find a string with the same feel as the rough, but no luck yet. :[

Quite frankly I can't use Luxilon. I just gives me a lot of arm troubles. I know a lot of people who have tried Luxilon and have had arm troubles. Luxilon is a very stiff string. I tried the original BB and the ALU rough.

I personally like Signum Pro Poly Plasma.
Finding the best strings though is a personal opinion, there will be plenty of people on the board who love Luxilon.
