Can anybody tell me the differences between these two 18 g. strings? They both seem to be reviewed pretty well.

Which one's more powerful? Better for spin? Control? Thanks. I'd appreciate any thoughts.

Babolat Pro Hurricane 18 Polyester 1.21mm 187 22.29
Luxilon Big Banger Ace 112 Polyester 1.16mm 232 17.05

Lux is much thinner. Bab is much softer.

big banger ace has some serious bite on the ball...some of the best of any string out there...you don't get that same kind of action with the pro hurricane...but the trade off (as hoodjem) pointed out, is stiffness...

IVe used both in full beds, and the ph is better in a full bed because it lasts longer.
In a cross with nat gut in mains, the ace is better because its characteristics last much longer
