    Ive read quite a number of positive feedback from users,
    and Im interested in getting a reel.

    But there are BigHitterSilver,BigHitterBlue,BigHitterBlueRough.

    Ive read that BigHitterSilver is similar to AluPower but what about the other 2?
    16 gauge or 17 gauge?

    Please help me make my choice.

    I hit with BHB and love it. From what I hear, it's a little softer than the silver. The rough version is the same material, but with a rougher texture.

    The most common comparisons I've seen are to CyberFlash and CyberBlue. Did I get that right?

    I don't either. If it was me, I'd go with the BHB, 17gauge. But that might not be best for you, so whatever.

    I don't think you can go wrong with any of them, really.

    I prefer Big Hitter Blue Rough, 17 gauge. =). If I recall correctly, it was a pretty average string. Alright tension maintenance, spin, power. Didn't have the best feel and I had to drop tension about 5 pounds in my normal hybrid set up because it had a weird tingy feel/sound to it at my normal tension(57-59, depending on the string).

    BH Silver is like alu power, crisper, more control oriented than Blue, which i found more powerful and comfortable. Their 16g is 1.25 and is great in open pattern rackets, for closed pattern rackets the 17g/1.20 may work better. If anyone has arm issues though they should hyrbrid it first.

    I really like the playability of the BHB 17. Very soft for a poly and who doesn't like the price?

    Unfortunately, I use a Prince 110 and the 16X19 string pattern is too much for the 17g and I'm breaking the strings after 5 hours of play. I'm going to try the 16g hoping for a good compromise.

    Does anyone know if the Rough plays stiffer than the regular BHB?

    Both the BHB and the sliver are great deals. Price performace is excellent. The Blue is a bit softer with more feel and power. The Silver is bit more crisp. I have never used the 16G in either. The 16G am sure will last a bit longer for really heavy hitters.. but you might lose some feel. Many folks here play the 17G. Check out the user feedback on the 16Gs for more info. These string are one of the best buys in polys IMO..

    Good luck with your quest!

    Good info Steve. Confirms my beliefs and I agree with the value of the Tourna/Unique polys. I will try some Silver with my next order.

    It feels great in many racquets, in other words, it is versatile. It is great in my apdgt as well as a pro staff 6.0 95.
