    I am Currently playing with the Yonex ultimum ti-50 standard and the long one. But I really don't know which one I should stick with, I really like both of them, Can someone help me with this issue?

    Do luxilon strings make your racquet heavy b/c thats what i notice everytime i get strung with luxilon it feels heavier than the one thats strung with synthetic....

    I feel that the Lux BB ALu 16's in my MP1 98 'feel' and ARE heavier than any other string I've used and negatively affect the SW and balance . Also, IMO the BB 16 gauge is damn thick for a 16. I don't like it.

    I'm not sure how you figure that since BB ALU is a 1.25mm string - the same measurement for most 17g strings. Most 16g I've seen have been 1.30
