    Kirschbaum Competition or Touch Turbo play most similarly to Luxilon Big Banger Original. They both have good power like Big Banger, but Touch Turbo plays a little softer than Competion. Purely judging power; I'd say Competition.

    how does the Kirschbaum Super Smash Honey play? More closely to Alu Power?

    I've found that Super Smash Honey doesn't play like any of the newer polyester strings like Luxilon Big Banger Original or ALU Power. Since it is an "older" polyester string, it is more control-oriented (in contrast to the powerful Luxilon strings) and has less spin potential. In terms of feel, Super Smash has a firm, crisp feel in comparison to Luxilon's dead, almost mushy feel.

    legolas i have found that the gosen comfort 17 gauge plays very similar to lux bb original but has the spin of the bb original rough. I would recommend the gosen comfort andy day but be sure to get teh 17 gauge.

    i think competition is most like timo, more control oriented. touch turbo is springy, and lux ace would prolly be closest to it.

    i haven't tried bb orig thou, so i can't really say.
