    Zymax 62 or 67. I personally like the 67 must better than the BG80, more repulsion, power and holds tension better. Zymax 62 is supposed to be better than the BG66 (more repulsion, power and holds tension better). I've used it a few times but preferred the 67 (being an ex BG80 fan :D)

    Tension (depends what tension you are used to playing with).

    IIRC I heard the same thing. In regards to recommending BG80 at 26-27lbs, BG80 feel 2~3 lb higher than BG65. Quite a high tension to recommend when we dont know dollargood's level of play :eek:

    26 is good for apacs rackets that i've used, as they feel 2-3lb less then same tension with my yonex MP100...
    i think the recommendation for Ti10 is around 20lb ~6 over the recommend limit seems a bit of a risk, i'm pretty sure Ti10s do well with 22-24... if your scared go for BG65 cuz then you can try it out since it loses tension relatively quickly...

    for any intermediate player don't know which string and tension they would like , a good start point is BG80 at 24lbs. If you feel great at first week, you could add another lb at next job. If you feel tight as board lost power at first week, but feel better two weeks after, reduce 1 lb at next job.

    I found most adult player with 2 or 3 years experience at OK shape could handle 23lb BG80 with a medial flax racket. 21 or 22 with stiff racket.

    If you tell me you play well with BG80 over 25lb, and you don't know which string and tension to get. then it would confuse me about your level of playing. Because you ask a beginner question but with advance play level.

    I dont believe that 26 is high for the Ti-10, but then again the person the strung my racket did a good job. Played with it for 6 months and still hasnt broken and has lost little tension.

    I have framed it a few times but not many, the paint as well as the frame are durable so far in my experience. However with any racket I'm afraid to go above 26 though.

    Well with my experience with bg-66 is that its great in power but lacks in durability. I've had a time where its snapped after a day but it might have been the stringers fault i dont know but i never went back to the 66.

    BG 65, on my Yellow Ti-10 lasted only 3 weeks...
    I gave it for re stringing today....
    It didnt break, but the strings had worn out at the sweetspot...
    I was sure that, one touch with my nail would snap it..
    Plus a tournament starts on Saturday, so I need fresh strings..

    And No 26 isnt all that high...
    Mine is strung at 29lbs ECP.

    I say BG85 @ 23/24lb...i wouldn't go too high with yonex rackets if you plan on playing with them for a while.

    How about Yonex BG98 strings? Any Pro try it before?

    I strung my Ti10 3rd gen before with:
    Bg66 26x28
    Bg80 26x28
    Nbg98 26x28

    From my view, all 3 strings work very well with Ti10. However Bg66 suffers from his durability. I feel Nbg98 is the improved version of Bg66, Nbg98 has the best power when smashing, slightly better than Bg80 but the price is much higher than Bg80. So Bg80 is the final choice of my Ti10.

    Hope this helps. :):p

    durability of nbg98 is great as well as its power. However i felt it lacked feel to it. Although my tension was not high when i first used it. I hope to use it again soon at 30 lbs

    We can't tell you whats best...in any way, my best is not the same as your best. Its better to tell us what you're looking for and then we can recommend some choices for you. If you're looking for higher tension, I think BG80 is good.

    BG66 and NBG 98 is 0.66mm string and BG80 is 0.68mm.

    So for the same tension u strung, the less pressure will be exerted on the frame if u use BG80.

    BG66 Sharp will feel more close to BG66 and NBG98 while being slightly thicker at 0.68mm than BG80, should I change your mind into giving it a try and topple BG80's position for you.
