    how cool is this?

    i got a quite a few broken strings from clients lately and thought it would be cool to show them hugely magnified. i will post more as i get more shots of different strings.

    BG80 - broken naturally.

    yes! it is interesting that BG80's core has clear/transparent fibers, and rather thick ones. i want to see what other microfilament strings has. oh.. i have a broken microlengend in the trash can. will dig it out.

    I doubt we'll see much variety in badminton strings - IME they're all what's known as "multifilament", i.e. they have no central "core". Still, I wouldn't say "no" to a few more of these; the BG80 one is awesome.

    Macros of tennis string would show at least four different types:).

    Doubt we'll be able to see the Ti, apart from a few sparkles in the coating layer, think we'll need a microscope for that :p

    wait a minute... so the dye goes right thru to the core?

    and this begs the question: do the different colours of zm62 play the same?

    and if not, which one is best? :)
