    Just wondering if u guys can help me out. I'm thinkin of gettin either one but both seem to have pretty good reviews. Please making my final choice a little easlier. I'm think of stringin the tension around 23-24 pounds on my muscle power 99 if that makes things more understandable!

    Thanks for ur help.

    The 88 should be better in both power and control but I'm guessing it isn't as durable since the 68Ti are thicker. From the reviews, the 88 is better than the 68 in both power and control so I'd go with the 88.

    I use the Gossen Bio Roots on my MP 99 and I like how it plays. I don't particularly like BG68Ti. Just my 2 cents worth.

    BG68Ti is just too stiff for me. At higher tensions, I just don't like how it feels. It is okay at lower tensions like 22lbs (I am guessing on tension here). Just a personal preference.

    I think 68ti is 0.01mm thinner. 88ti also seems to last longer and hold tension better.
