BG-80 or 85??

    Types of strings affect the way I play...I discovered that I suck with titanium strings and prefer the thinner ones like BG-80 or 85. I'm thinking of using this string at 20 main 22 cross on my racquet but I'm afraid I'll break it and have to have it restrung. Since the closest badminton store is 30 miles away and I am constantly broke...I try not to break any strings. Anyone comment on the use of BG-80 and 85 on nylon shuttles? 85 is thinner and less durable but should I sacrifice better feel, repulsion, and power for better durability?

    if your worried about durability...and dont mind using something similar to bg-65..

    you could try bg70pro...they have a longer lifespan than bg65..

    however if you want something better than bg65 with slightly less life span..get bg80...
    but it really depends on how you play this sport...

    If you are playing with plastics a lot and stringing is a problem(not convenient), I'd suggest BG65 or one of the hard wearing Ashaway strings (Rally 22?).
    Also try to procure a 2nd and 3rd racquet.
