    hey I am playing with a forza ti-550 n-force power. I strong it with head super power 71. at 24lbs. it feels pretty okay. but I have lost feeling on the short game around the net. My play is being just a little to short. would like some help for another string.

    thanks.
    Can you tell more about the string?

    other suggestions are very welcome.
    would like to try 3-4 different strings. then take it from there.

    I think the head 71 feels to plastik and stiff.

    I will try the
    zymax 67.
    bg80
    and vs 850.
    I normal strecht my string a Little when stringing.
    6 point with old manuel weight.
    is 24lbs okay or should i go a Little up or Down.
    A Little guide for each string.
    do not like when string is overstreched
    thanks

    bg80 is much more powerful than the vs850, but i enjoy the control of the vs850. my tension is 24lbs without prestretching so after settling it's probably at 22-23lbs. for angle shots i tend to slice a lot so the friction provided by the vs850 suits me well. my smash was never powerful to begin with, so the power i got from bg80 compared to that from vs850 is only marginal. it should be obvious to you that i'm not a power hitter :)

    i've only tried zymax 62, so i can't comment on zymax 65 or 67. but playing with 62 for quite a thin string, repulsion is decent! tho i feel like i'm going to break the string every time i take a shot probably because my mind kept telling me that it's 0.62mm thin! control like any other thin string, is great.
