    I play badminton 6 hours per 1 week. (24 lbs)
    Now I like high repulsion string. Can you recommend tension stability strings for 4 weeks.
    In present, I use BG66UM. but I have a problem, because BG66UM is reduced tension stability after 2 weeks, and continue reducing. (I love BG66UM from my first touch)

    Then, I interest...
    ZM62
    ZM65
    Li-ning AP62Plus

    Can you tell me about 3 strings or your recommend strings are enough for 4 weeks or not.
    (more than 4 weeks are not necessary, because i often change string every month)

    If high repulsion and tension retention is what you want, then nbg98, followed by zm62 are the best.

    However, no string is perfect.
    98 is quite slippery, so not very good control, and
    62 has poor durability if you string more than 24 lbs.

    Give nbg98 a try first... you'll be pleasantly surprised by the amount of power from it. :)

    I second nbg98. Its tension retaining is very good and good repulsion too. Currently i'm using ap62+ but just dont like the thin string characteristic. Seems like too bouncy. I miss nbg98...

    tricks of nbg 98. try it at higher tension than your usual. coz its slippery. but the repulsion is damn good

    Seconded. In blue, if you want the best tension-holding.

    I think the white is a shade more powerful, but the blue certainly holds tension better IME.

    Control is as good as is possible this side of the "rope saw" strings like BG80 - it "grips" rather than "biting". Touch... superb, and only gets better when the tension goes up.

    Thanx. Forgot to ask you to compare (repulsion, control, feel, durability, etc) to other strings like
    zm62/65, nbg98/99, vs850, etc. TIA! :)

    It is, only LCW has it as far as I know

    (It may be available in extremely short quantities, but you'll have to do a lot of looking)
