I use a full bed of Big Ace 1.28 strung at 54 (Head Prestige Mid+). What would be the comparative pros/cons of a full bed of Black Code? Would the comfort be about the same at 54? All comments welcome. Thanks.

IMO the 17g (1.24) Black Code is softer, more comfortable, and has better feel than Luxilon Ace. No comparison really, TF wins hands down. BTW I string my Head Flexpoint Prestige Midplus XLs at 54 lbs. with TF Black Code 17g.

Okay took the time to look it up:

According to the USRSA.. (String/Guage/Stiffness/Tension Loss)

Black Code 16g 1.31/ 241 / 17.93
Black Code 17g 1.27/ 225 / 18.03
Black Code 18g 1.18/ 220 / 18.88

Big Ace 1.22/ 225 / 18.68
Big Ace 1.25/ 234 / 19.16
Big Ace 1.28/ 238 / 18.68
