    WHich tension?If u play below 25lbs,u can go for BG85 for more repulsion.Durability would be an issue if u go above that.Above than 25,BG80 is a good choice.Best repulsion would be from BG66,NBG98..

    Maybe hm.. SportsLink at CauseWay Point, by the Woodlands MRT Station..
    My friends in Singapore used to string their racquets there, and so did I..
    I forgot the prices though.

    agreed... bg66 seems to be most popular with repulsion and feel. Most advance player and international player loves it. I focus only on bg66. Yippee..

    Definitely go with BG-80 if you're looking for more power. I have BG-80 at 22 pounds on my MP99, and I love it to death.

    From all the racquets I strung before, BG85 and BG66 at 24 lb or higher (less than 29 lb, I will not go over 29lb without a waver) will not damage the racquet in anyway. The "Suggested Tension" is for general playability and to give Yoenx an excuse in case some player decided to go with 30 lb and stringer suck at it and broke the racquet.

    Try NBG 98 yellow at 26lbs tension.

    I just did my rackets with red and gold NBG 98 @28lbs, sounds really nice and power is excellent. :D
    Durability is expected to be very poor.:mad:
