    I was wondering if this string would be ok for me. I used Wilson sensation strings recently, and they broke very soon after the racket was restrung. Are these strings more durable? Also, I recently used Wilson Stamina DT and they lasted me very long, which is good. I want to know if I should stay with Wilson Stamina DT or try Big Banger strings. I use an Ncode N6 (not Nsix-one) at 59 LB tension.

    More durable, yes by a lot. Big Banger last longer than almost everything out there on the market. I am not familiar with Stamina DT, but I have tested the stamina string by wilson. if stamina and stamina dt last anywhere near equal, then big banger should be out of your question as it costs a lot and probably will take forever longer to break. by then, the strings plays like crap

    They will play differently though, as Stamina is not a Poly and BB ALU Power Rough is. The Power Rough will also have more bite on the ball, as it is a textured Poly.

    The cost isnt that big of a deal since TW sells it for around 15 dollars? I just want to have a good string that will last around as long as the stamina did for me.

    If you like Sensation I doubt you will like BB Alu Rough. However it might be worthwhile to try it as a hybrid.
    A full Alu Rough job, to me, doesn't feel good at all. It'll definatly last you awhile though.

    i have full big banger at 56lbs and it is really nice. if asnyone wanted to get all polys then i would recommend this strings as it has enough, not alot, but enough for me anyway.
