    yes, it is.

    Start to wonder how it compares to Yonex BG66UM, which has the same diameter.

    When will Zymax 65 be available at stringer's world ?

    I also have another question concerning zymax 67 and 70. I just buy the new ones (new package but in white color) and test the 67. For me, the durability is not so good (about 15 hours at 27 lbs) and the feel is so bad. I will test the 70 later and hope it will be better. So the question is : it can be not a new (or old) zymax 67, a fake so ? Because I saw so many good review and I personally don't like it so much especially the soft death felling (for precision, I don't bough it at stringer's world but in a local shop). I forget that the gauge look like a 0.70 mm string and not 0.67.

    Thank in advance

    The new Zymax packaging is black and red. With the older version, the ZM67 was okay in white, but the newer version has pretty sweet repulsion and good feel. I don't get people who snap strings after only 15 hours of use. I have a BS11 strung at 26lbs with BG80 that has over a years worth of use and virtually no signs of wear. I honestly think that the key is to use good stringers - there seems to be a big gap between those that think they're good and those that actually are. It also helps if you have six rackets in your bag on constant rotation :)

    well... i had the 67 in silver which lasted for ~5 months which is quite a long time. now i bought more than a dozen red 67s. one of them actually broke after one session most likely due to my mishits. my stringer is pretty legit. im pretty sure it was me cuz i was doing some troll shots... fooling around LOL. my other red 67s havent popped yet

    too bad there is no known badminton stringer within the hour of me. Really want to try this string but not possible without a stringer or a machine. :(

    People, Stringer's World in the UK is 1000xAwesome. If you want Zymax, just order it from there. Quick, cheap, and good.

    for UK: Goode sport replied saying they wont be bringing the 65 in atm because they find it superior to the improved 62 and 67. but who knows, they may change their minds any minute.

    How is the durability of the ZM65/67 compared to NBG98? I tried ZM70 awhile ago but it broke after 1.5weeks compared to NBG98 which can go for 2 months+

    Did the 70 just break once, or was it consistently breaking numerous times after 1.5 weeks?

    1.5 to 2 weeks each for 3 sets of zm70.

    The string may be cheaper but if it doesn't last long as nbg98 the stringing cost will cost more over time.

    I'm looking into the ZM65 so i'm hoping the durability is improved a lot.
