    yo i dont know that much about strings so i was wondering if i could get some help...
    im currently playing with a luxilon poly (my coach strings my racquets and idk what exactly he puts in there... when i ask he just says "their called 'big bangers'"... but idk which one he uses)

    the only problem i have with this string is that it dies very quickly and i lose a lot of control and consistency with my groundstrokes after i play with them for a while. is there a good poly string that will not lose tension and die as quickly as these luxilon strings? i hit with a western grip and a lot of topspin, so i also dont want something that will break after like 3 days. thanks.

    Tecnifibre Pro Red Code 16g, plays bery much like Luxilon Big Banger (ALU Power i.m assuming you've got) but doesnt lose tension nowhere near as quickly. I can hit with pro red for about 2 months before i have to cut it out.

    How about........

    Tec Red code is good but stiff. You can also try Weiss Cannon Silverstring, MSV Focus Hex or Topspin Cyberflash as all hold tension very well (although Cyberflash has a tendency to break from sheer[framed mishits]).

    The Pro Supex Big Ace is a popular string.

    Both the big ace and the blue gear are.
    Both are good strings.

    are they good for maintaining tension and not dying quickly?
