    I cant decide between stringing my racquet with:
    Luxilon Big Banger Ace 18
    Luxilon Big Banger TiMO 18
    Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour 17

    Please give me some suggestions, thanks.

    I think PHT holds its tension and playability better. I am not a fan of Lux, though. I am rather biased for the reason of tension maintenance.

    If you can afford to replace your Lux every other day--then it is a darn good string. If you want a string/poly that lasts more than four hours of hard hitting-go with the PHT.

    Also, Try SPPP. Great stuff--my fave.

    SPPP is a lot softer than PHT in my opinion, but not a bad string.

    Personally I prefer Luxilon Big Banger TiMO 18 , but like been said the tension stability is poor.

    So BA is the way to go.
