Bob and Mike Bryan Sign Exclusive Contract With Luxilon String.
Luxilon today announced the signing of Bob and Mike Bryan, the world’s number-one doubles team and two of the most successful players on the ATP tour. The 31 year old twins will now use Luxilon Big Banger ALU Power Rough string exclusively.
“Everyone at Luxilon is thrilled to have Mike and Bob on our team,” Nico Van Malderen, President of Luxilon said. “Luxilon has proven to be a key ingredient for Tour players’ success and we are proud to offer the #1 doubles team a superior product.”
The 16 gauge Big Banger ALU Power Rough, $15.75 USD is a great choice for a string breaker but is not as resistant to breakage as the Big Banger original 130. The monofilament construction of the string enhances feel and control over the ball and the rough texture makes it particularly spin friendly.
It’s difficult to determine what string most players are using from a distance but Luxilon is said to be one of the more popular brands on the tour. Roger Federer, for example, used Luxilon at Wimbledon.
The Bryan brothers use: the Prince O3 Speedport Black racquet, Tourna Grip original over grip and wear adidas. Pictured here they are in the adidas Men’s Summer Competition Crew, $39.99 and Summer Competition short, $37.99.
