    Cool! Thanks for the hard work! I also like the Ashaway Micro Power as well. #1 on my list.

    Thanks a lot for the report! This will save the rest of us a lot of money and time to identify the few strings that will work for us.

    String feel is just that, how the string feels when you hit the shuttle.

    Most of the pros I've talked to don't mention string power, control, durability or anything like that. They tell me they go with the string that gives them the best "feel". If the string feels good, it gives them confidence to hit their shots.

    Of course feel preference is different for everyone. For instance, the Ashaway MicroLegend and XL are very powerful and responsive strings. However, I just don't prefer the feel. Can't explain it. Almost like they are too responsive so they lack control. :p

    Wow. Good job, Sir :)

    My much more limited experience is consistent with Dink's judgement.

    1. #21, you meant "PG66" right? :rolleyes:

    2. Can you specify your string tension all the "demo"? I am sure the string tension is a huge factor for some of the grades here, such as durability.

    3. Maybe describe a bit of yourself, such as the nature strength level and playing style. For the new comers, they need to factor in this as the grades are relatively speaking.

    Great job!!!

    It's what i call, the force "within"..

    ..hmm, i don't know if Dan or the rest of you guys feel it's somewhat significant or not, as i'm also curious in terms of their price range..So we can compare which strings would be more "cost effective" compared to their "overall performance", in comparison to their peers..;)

    Awsome work.

    Thanks DinkAlot.

    Keep up the awsome work, can't wait to see the Dink's Carbonex review.:D

    Maybe if we want certain strings reviewed we could send Dink the strings and a truck load of bamboo so he has the energy to test the strings for us and add it to his list.:D Get the Panda approval stamp!

    Cheers,

    D-Man
