Let me start off by saying that Luxilon Big Banger Original is my absolute favorite string. The only downside is that it loses tension too quickly, so its hard for me to love it as much... I always string between 50 and 55 pounds, regardless of string type. Even at 50, BBO was much too stiff. So I strung it up at 46 lbs, and WOW. Great comfort, no arm troubles. It felt like something between "soft" and "crisp". Awesome feel without feeling mushy. I still had a lot of control despite the low tension. If you enjoy playing with full poly but suffer arm pain, I suggest stringing a few pounds below minimum tension. You'll still experience the playability of full poly without killing your arm, no matter how stiff the string is. I'm gonna look for my old Silverstring and string it up at 46 as well.
