So I've recently switched strings and I'm playing with Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power Rough 16L String on the mains and Gamma Live Wire XP 16 on the crosses. I absolutely love it.
The problem is for the first few matches I play after a restring, it's absolutely quality. But after that it's horrible, it totally loses its playability. I used to string racquets but I don't have a machine, so every time I restring it's costing me a tenner plus the £10-15 odd I gotta spend on the string. I can't really justify paying that much every week or two.
I used to play with the Live Wire on mains and crosses, the durability was much better but the playablity is significantly reduced. I think it's the Big Banger that's causing the problems, but I like the string....
Is there anything else you'd recommend that might produce similar results but wouldn't need me to restring so often?
