An improved version of the most popular synthetic string on the pro tour, Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power Fluoro 123 tennis string offers additional comfort as a result of the addition of fluorocarbons during the extrusion process and a reduction in diameter to 1.23mm. This string has all the durability of regular ALU Power, with a softer feel that's easier on the arm. While it's still a relatively stiff string, ALU Power Fluoro is noticeably softer than most polyester strings and offers plenty of power and spin potential.

    All Big Banger Strings:
  • Give more power.
  • Are very durable.
  • Show no loss of efficiency.
  • Don't move.
  • Are impervious to atmospheric conditions.

Durability: 8
Power: 10
Control: 9
Comfort: 10

It is recommended by Luxilon that you string Big Banger strings at least with 10% less tension than your usual strings.

          Comments about Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power Fluoro 123:

          I take a full swing (semi-western both sides) and thus play with a low power racquet for control and, until recently, with Luxilon's Timo. Lately I've been looking for a little more power. I tried ALU Fluoro and found it plays like Timo but with more pace while producing similar topspin and control – just what I was looking for, albeit with a slighly harsher impact.

            I string this in the crosses and I use Ace 112 in the Mains. It is a perfect match for me. I'm a 5.0 player using Head Prestiege MP.

            • Q:

              Is the picture really how the ALU Power 123 Fluro string is packaged? Because, this seems to be an older (outdated?) packaging.

              I'd be afraid to cut what appears to be the "wire tie" holding the string together, without damaging the string itself.

              Other pictures I've seen of THIS exact string for sale, seem to be packaged in the "newer" Luxilon packaging. An example of the "newer" Luxilon packaging is on your web site for product: Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power Feel 120. This seems to be a "closed envelope" style plastic package, without the wire ties.

                A:

                This image does show the older packaging, though we only have the newer packaging in stock. Our web team is working on correcting the image as quickly as possible and we sincerely apologize for any confusion or inconvenience. The new packaging still has a tie wrap around the string coil. It is important to exercise some caution when removing the tie wrap from the sting coil as it is possible to damage the string. Personally, I prefer to grip the tie wrap with needle nose pliers or clippers and twist to break the tie wrap instead of cutting it.

                A:

                Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power Fluoro is considered a 16L string and is 1.23mm thick. It is slightly thinner than 16 gauge and slightly thicker than 17 gauge.
