Federer doesn't play all Luxilon. He has a hybrid job of Lux Big Banger and Wilson natural gut.
Anyway, I'm tempted to try them as I love Lux tennis strings.

I got a couple of Luxilon Badminton Supersense 0.67mm (string ... with a ping!) for free a while back.
I tried one set (in Sep 2007) at 20lb and it felt quite tight. It did indeed "ping!".
No real complaint or praise about it, just a comment on its "hard" feeling.
just looking at the reviews on that link, I may have to give my remaining set another try, but on a stiffer racquet this time I think (it was on my flexible one last time)

Got this yesterday. Strung it at 23 lbs on my Wilson KFactor Tour. Tested yesterday and today and all I can say is .... Wow!!
Stringing was a little difficult because the string is kind of stiff and does not bend too much. After stringing, the tension felt like heck of tight!
Played for 4 hours straight and string does not move at all. I mean it just does not move.
I got excellent feel on my shots. Super control. The shuttlecock seemed to just bounced off the string as soon as impact. Good power also. I was able to smash hard and PRECISE with this string, much more precise than the BG-80 that I usually use.
Overall.... WOW!! This string deserves 6 stars in my opinion though 5 is the max.

within the last week I restrung 3 of my airblades with Ashaway MicroLegend, so you'll have to wait for one of them to break before I can re-test my last set.
I do seem to remember it was awkward to string.
Much like some horrible tennis poly

I tried the Luxilon Supersense today on an Apacs AMP95 at 27 lbs. Excellent control, I can direct the shuttle precisely where I want it to go. Power seems to be good. String seems somewhat slippery when slicing the shuttle. Smashes were decent. For some reason, I am not able to do overhead clears properly. Could be because of the high string tension. The guy who did the stringing is a pro and said that the 27 lb bed feels a lot tighter than that.
I had the Nanogy 95 at 28 lbs prior to the the Luxilon and theres a world of difference between the two. The NGY95 had a lot more repulsion, a lot less control and lot of power initially.
Certainly, the Luxilon at 27 lbs feels tighter than the NGY95 at 28lbs.
Hope this helps.
PS: For the players who love the 'explosive' sound of their smahes, you can forget it on the Luxilon. You barely hear anything.
