    Moved thread to correct sub-forum....
    [MENTION=99864]brisac[/MENTION] if you're interested in opinions and suggestions from other members, it would help if you provide some more information and background, like,

    Your level of play: professional, advanced, intermediate, beginner, etc.
    How long you've been playing. What is your style of play?
    Etc, etc...

    The more information you provide, the better feedback you will receive. :)

    It's a celestial revolt! Kwun appoints some idiot as mod, and the higher powers decide to make their feelings known! :eek: :eek: :p

    On a more sober note, things are expected to settle down, gremlins euthanized etc in a few days... not ME, the software!

    If you already have lots of power to spare, then what you need is control, so should try nbg99 or bg80 power.

    What's/ What was your current/previous string? Where are looking for? Power? Control? Durability? Feeling?
    From my experience the NBG98 is very slippery, not a good string for sliced shots but it's very repulsive. Never tried BG80P.

    Have been trying various strings on my ZFs at 25lbs recently . NBG99 is a good all rounder , but Toalson nano premium 66 will give you a more precise and delicate feel . Babolat Finebraid Micro is very similar but quite a bit harder , probably even more than BG 80 . If you like attacking you ought to try this one first . I'm not normally a fan of hard strings on most racquets but the ZFs seem to remove the usual harsh vibrations .

    durability should not be a problem for a professional player, should it?
