    Dear Dink

    I assume you are talking about going from top to bottom here:

    >Assuming 25lbs. tension:

    >25 on the mains
    >24 on the first 5 crosses
    >Then 25 on the next 5 crosses
    >Then 27 on crosses 11 to 22.

    Regards,

    Valentinas

    Hi Dink

    Have you tried any of the Victor strings ? The VS-850 are amazing, like BG80 but more repulsive and better feel.

    No. Panda's never tried stringing "proportionately" bottom-up.

    In fact, Panda has not strung bottom up in over 2 years. :p

    These were on the BS10 I tried with paulstewart64 - we both agreed that they were very BG80-like, and at 26 (he normally plays at 24) we both thought they gave the racket a real boost. The string job contributed to me giving the BS10 5/5 in our reviews:).

    I'm surprised to see RS Tour Micro 66 here... Is it Reinforced Speed ? Since, AFAIK, that's an Indonesian Brand (Manufacturer in Bandung, West Java). And.. I used that string... It's quite random... Like there's some chances you'll got a really durable one (Survived for 6 months without cutting) and there's some chances the string broke after about 10 - 15 games (2 - 3 days play) for me.

    Many of the lining string generated good power & good tight control, but the only problem is same as yonex bg66 string, it is not durable, i guess about 2-3 matches it will drop tensions and it depended on how agressive you played. You can always look for repulsion with 0.66mm string, there are quite some kind over there.

    Is that the factory string of BS10? Because I played with that and really didn't like it. Had to check my racket after every smash because strings would move so much.

    Now play with NBG95, just love that one. 98 is even better but not durable enough for me somehow.

    How do you compare Gosen's R4X 100 and Ashaway's Zymax 62?
