For a great many professional tennis players, there is no substitute for Luxilon strings. My splurge this week is one of the most iconic Luxilon strings, Big Banger Original, which was among the first crop of Luxilon co-polys to start popping up on the pro tour in the late 1990s-early 2000s. For those who want to get the firm feel and incredible control of the Big Banger Original without having to spend over $10, I would recommend Solinco Outlast. While no two strings play exactly alike, I think Outlast is a worthy substitute for Big Banger Original. Psst: it also received a higher spin rating in our TWU string lab.
Check back next week for another edition of save vs splurge!
The Prince Scream is back at Tennis Warehouse! Women with wider feet can rejoice! Let’s add this one to the list of shoes for women looking for a wider fit.
The QT Scream 4 is the latest in this series that has many devoted fans. The signature look is there right alongside the familiar fit. Sliding my feet into the Scream 4, my feet wanted to scream for joy! They didn’t feel constricted; I could give my toes a little wiggle.
The cushioning also feels nice and soft underfoot, and the Scream 4 flexes nicely from heel to toe right out of the box. Take note that this isn’t the lightest shoe out there, but there’s plenty of comfort and support to make this a great all-around option for female players seeking a wider fitting shoe.
We wanted to give you a behind the scenes look at Solfire’s photoshoot for the upcoming Wild Collection. The company is based in Brooklyn, New York, and some of the most iconic locations in the country are right in its backyard.
They gave us a sneak peek, behind the scenes look of the photo shoot for the Wild Collection, which you’ll be able to find here at Tennis Warehouse very soon!

The US Tennis Center is 5 miles from our design center, and we went there first to get things started. We spent some time shooting right in front of the unisphere. It always feels special to be in a place where so many us open champions have stood.
