    I am currently looking for new strings to try, I have been loving the Luxilon ALU lines and more recently the M2's. I have been using Luxilon for YEARS but for some reason they just don't feel quite as good as I remembered them to feel when I first started using them.

    Anyhow, I am overdue for trying out different strings on the market. Please help!

    It would help me greatly if you just simply post your top 2 favorite strings of ALL TIME and I will then simply pick the ones that most people have in common.

    PS: I know it's hard for many of us to chose a top 2 if you've tried dozens of different strings, but please for my sake, narrow it down to 2!

    361 nation is one of your favorite strings of all time? Come on, the stuff is stiff junk. And its green and not even available yet.

    I just don't see how it could be your best string you ever used.

    i have played my best tennis with it. i get a lot of control and spin with it. touch shots as in slices and vollys are always awesome and serves have more spin then i have ever had before allowing me to hit with more power. it plays a lot like my current hybird set-up but the 361 has a tad bit more control. but my setup is about a $1.50ish? not even

    So just because a string is a prototype and not in full production I can't like it?fine I change my answer to VS gut strung by TTW poster Drakulie @71lbs strung on a star 4 when the humidity is 89% at 1pm on Saturdays.
    There is that a better answer for the question?

    Budget player<(~~ Due to this the best playability I have come in contact with is Head Fibergel Power. Great Multifilament. It really amazes me. 2nd best is Pro hurricane tour. Its a little stiff for me, but once i got used to it... GG

    Honorable mentions: Big Bangers Main/Lightning crosses. Great durability and enough touch to get you through the day. 60/58 I think. I don't remember lol.

    Summary:
    1st: Head FiberGel Power 16g
    2nd: Pro Hurrican Tour 16g-17g
    Honorable Mentions: Big Bangers 16g/Lightning 16g
