    NBG98 also comes in pink but probably only in the JP production.

    Yep, my stringer friend had a whole reel. Definitely a market for pink ... See a reel costs 53GBP @ stringersworld. Don't know if it makes a difference BG65ti is the default string on pre-strung rackets in Europe. I doubt most teenage (and younger) girls care what type of string they play with ;)

    I ordered a box of 10 pink Bg65ti 12 month ago thinking the HS girls would love to have it. Today I still have 8 available. Go figure...

    maybe you didn't market it properly. strung one of your rackets with it and then show it off in the local gym. the customers will flock to you.

    1) My friend's daughter has one on her racquet.
    2) I advertised it "For pretty cute girl only" and parents look at me with a strange look...

    [​IMG] Go figure indeed. At least half the coil was empty when I was there ... Maybe Kwun has more demand in warmer sunnier cali.

    Even guys use it :p http://www.yonex.ch/de/news.html#news293

    They also had some news about BG65 in Violett. Not sure if the colour is new or the fact it's available in reels or just a new colour for the region. Looks pretty good as wel; :cool:.

    yeah, but isn't the new one supposed to be a bit heavier?? ie, more playable for men?

    How much are they selling it for? shuttlehouse is close the $300...I would imagine Canadian retailers won't be much cheaper
