    Thank you :)

    I don't mind the red colour, most of my racquets are strung with BG80, which is a very nice string but I'm not 100% sure about the high-vis yellow :)

    Might feel inclined to try the Zymax 67 or 70.

    I actually don't mind the 'red' colour either. My PowerHelix 7000 looks pretty cool in red Bg65ti. I'm already a big fan of the current Zymax 70 but I'm nonetheless really looking forward to try out the new '70. Until it is released I'll be using Ashaway Microlegend as my coach only stocks a select few - Microlegend being one of them.

    Just got hold of the new Zymax 62 and 67 last week and have already strung up 4 of my racquets with them at 26x27.5. It's the first time I've used the 67 and I'm very impressed - tremendous repulsion and very good control at the net. I actually think it's better than the 62, and I had been stringing predominantly with the Mk1 62 over the last year, and liked it then. Still have half a reel of Mk1 yellow 62 left, and hope to get a reel of the red 67 soon. In my experience I would rate my current favourite strings now as:

    1. the new zymax 67 in first place
    2. zymax 62 and Yonex BG66UM in shared second place

    My reel still stuck in CANADA customs. They really suck, pay or not pay PST, a simple decision sometimes might take those suckers one whole week or even longer to make. And they are still looking for a raise, what a joke.

    I will order some 10m packs of the new z62 and z67 from stringersworld. I hope the mk2 stuff will rest longer on my rackets then last time. I only played 3h with the old z62 before it snapped(but performance was great in every point of view).

    Anyone knows where can i get the blue bg80 and the pink nbg 98?

    Yep! :)

    In fact, it just arrived 2 minutes ago! It's definitely not fluro red, in case anyone was wondering - just pain ol' red. Ah well.

    GR (DE) code do not mean the racket is made in germany. it only means it was supposed to be distributed (to be sold) to Germany. all Yonex rackets are still made in Japan / Taiwan / China.
