I decided to try an experiment and had my racquets strung at the same tension with two different strings - the Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power and the Head Rip Control TE 13/14. I play with LM Radicals btw. I've played twice now (two hour each time) and I can't really say that I play differently with one or the other. The Luxlion are "softer", but I feel I get the same spin, control and power. Has anyone else tried a direct comparison ? Are these strings just very similar anyway ?
