Tourna Polys
Which one of the tourna polys would be the most crisp and have the most responsive feel?

Francis27 02-09-2013 06:25 PM

Tourna big hitter blue rough and tourna big hitter black 7

I've only hit with BHBR and it's great. Think I might choose it as my string of choice from now on. I'm tired of trying different strings lol.

You can't go wrong with any of them! There is no better poly for the price!

Big Hitter Silver is the crispiest.

I second that. It feels very crisp, clean, and comfortable. Black 7 is too, but with a little more power and crazy spin. Actually they are all great strings.

BHBR is a great string, and when it dies it loses a lot of power but stays comfortable for a while...

Tmano 02-10-2013 06:27 AM

definitely big hitter silver......maybe the silver rough too

xsmasher 02-10-2013 10:47 AM

BHBR loses its directional control very fast. BHB plays very nice for longer time...softer and more great power and control.

Would Blue rough 17 make my ig rad pro a rockt launcher? I had sonic pro in it and was not getting the ball deep enough. Hit with lots of spin and long strokes.

Could someone make a direct comparison of BHS to BHSR?
Would the rough make a fine substitute to regular silver?

Defiantly BHS is the most crisp one, jarring for some people, feel wise the BHB7 is pretty good and is nice and soft. BHB is almost something in between. The rough versions has edges instead of being round and will provide some additional spin initially, but will round up pretty quickly anyway. Can't go wrong with these strings and all are not expensive.

silver rough 16gg is very good, crisp but not too stiff. firms up with striking the ball hard. kinda like alu power

Silver Rough is a good offering.

mikeespinmusic 04-20-2013 06:44 AM

ALL IMO between BHBR and BHB7

Kick serves bounce to the moon with both strings.

(Never tried silver but heard its stiffer - one would assume a crisper feel)

Big Hitter Blue Rough is my absolute favourite for allround play. Best touch & power. Great to flatten out winners as well as terrfic spin.

When its dead, its erractic and inconsitent on the string bed. And if you don't use dampener like me, you would feel almost somewhat of a short & sharp zap or crack when hitting. But it doesn't hurt like many others.

Big Hitter Black 7 is almost exclusive to the hard core baseline, spin monsters. Everything you want out of big, loopy spin hitting. Volleys too spinny for my comfort as well as flat shots. Not the best feel that I'm able to work with. Feels like you're shattering glass with a baseball bat when you're hitting the ball (ironically, this doesn't feel bad, its kinda satisfying).

When its dead, its a little more controllable on the ground strokes than blue. And it doesnt seem as uncomfortable. But my double faults would just go through the roof as it would just topple down the ball at some weird angle.

All in all, those two are fairly comparable strings.

Great strings.

Big Hitter Silver Rough is lower powered, stiffer, and more control orientated. I prefer the 17.

Big Hitter Blue Rough is springier, more elastic and livelier. No other string like it IMO in terms of being able to generate action and unpredictable movement on the ball off the bounce. I prefer the 16. 17 just seems a bit too lively for anything other than a lower powered racquet. That said, I like adding Silverstring 1.20mm as a cross to BHBR17 mains. Just stiffens the stringbed and adds control whilst allowing for the BHBR to provide spin and action on the ball.

I've used regular BHS and BHB and I find the BHS (Silver) to be more crisp...seems to me Tourna makes excellent strings in general.

I have used them all. Big Hitter Silver 17G is the crispiest. Plays like ALU Power, lasts longer at a much lower cost.

BIGJ98 04-21-2013 05:16 PM

which one is best for tension maintenance and driving the ball?

dhdriver 04-21-2013 10:16 PM

On average... how long does the playability of BHB7 17 last for you guys?
