    I was watching the 4th or 5th set and the commentators commented on how deadly Almagro's forehand is, and the fact that he is using Luxilon string that is shaped that a lot of the clay court players use. They were amazed by the crazy spin that Almagro is getting with his string. I look at Almagro's Dunlop and the string seemed orangish/pinkish flesh colored which makes me think that it is Big Banger Original. The only shaped Luxilon string that I know of is Luxilon Aluspin.

    1-Were they talking about Big Banger Original (which is not shaped)?

    2-Were they talking about Aluspin?

    I'm leaning towards Aluspin, but what do you say?

    There is a rough version of Big Banger Original so they could have been talking about that.

    If you say the string was BBO coloured, chances are, it was BBO or BBO Rough.

    I don't know about the color, but I did string up a set of Alu spin and it is shaped.

    They did say he was using Big banger. She said that big banger is amde for clay courtists because it gives so much more spin than alu power. I heard no mention of shaped
