    so i tried this racket with BG65Ti. i strung it at 24lbs to compensate for the tension loss. my friend usually string around 22lbs.

    it felt really quite good. a solid bounce and nice responds on clear. i would rate this string as medium soft.

    NP, I open all my favorite badminton sites everyday, and last night I spotted it on there website. ;)

    It has too much black on it tho, needs to be all pink then I'll get one. Let us know how well it plays when you get it please. :)

    whoa...

    purely from the looks alone, i think it is a bit too pink. if you want to match something funky like pink strings, the original ARC9 is perfect combination of white and pink.

    but do let us know how it plays. it is supposed to be a bit stiffer than the original ARC9.

    May be it is just me. I think if you have 2 sets (1 white and 1 pink) of BG65ti, go with white main and pink cross. That will be cute. Or in my case, pink BG65ti main with white BG80 cross.

    the string? it bought it from a local store. pink is one of the standard colors for bg65ti so you should be able to find them in any decent store.

    yeah, Pink, White, and and Yellow are the colours shown in YY catalogue. But you can get BG65TI in pretty much any colour, except green. BG65 apparently comes in Orange and Amber.:) I think I am going to try that out.:)

    personally i prefer white on my own rackets. but i have to admit the ARC9+pink is pretty good looking.

    yeah the pink looks nice, I know someone that has been using the Arc9 with Pink BG65Ti, I must admit, it does look nice.

    Favorite strings: BG-80, BG-66, recently zymax 62. Color is black, pink and purple. BG-66 comes in black and zm62 in silver looks good but it isn't black. Not sure about the other colors.

    BG66 comes in Black, Blue, Violet, Purple and Blue/Purple Turquoise, as well as many other colours.
    BG80 is available in Blue, White, Yellow and Violet.
    I haven't found any of these two in Pink, but NBG98 comes in Pink:) ZM62 as far as I am aware only comes in White, Silver and Yellow.

    quite a lot of people in this forum are saying the BG-66 break quickly
    what is the recommend tension ? ( im a powerful player) around 22/24 ? lower ?
    but there is the new BG-66 Ultimax and Maxima

    Thanks LD, now to see if I want to walk away from zm62.

    BG-66 only breaks if you mishit imo. I use to play bg-66 at 24lbs and have it currently strung on 3 rackets at 26lbs and still going for a month. Never tried the other BG-66 sharp, ultimax and maxima because I hardly do online shopping but that may soon change.
