View Full Version : string advice needed

08-17-2009, 06:36 PM
as a fan of the luxilon alu power rough, i've been looking around for a string that has a similar feel. i don't like "soft" strings at all, especially after playing with luxilon. i just love the raw feel of the ball on the racquet, especially when you play without a shock absorber and the nice sound that accompanies each shot. does anyone have any reccomendation's for strings that are similar in characteristics to the power rough? (and don't have that soft, mushy feeling)

thank you!

A cheap alternative is Topspin Cyber Flash. I have played it and it is similar to Lux. You can find it on the bay for about $7 including shipping.

I have and still use BB Alu power rough and non-rough for 3 yrs. Ive recently used cyber flash 17ga fo my crosses and it does compliment the stiffness of the BB.

The cyber flash, on the contrary, is soft, controlling BUT durable. I also agree it is cheap and looks similiarly in color BUT totally feel the oposite to Lux Alu power.

im using 50-55 mains/cross tension depending on conditions.
