    alot of international players are using the bg-65.
    i think if i'm not wrong the bg-65 string along with bg-6 string is the most basic string in the yonex series.
    How come the pro players like LCW , TH , PG all use BG-65(i maybe wrong)
    I mean Bg-66 can provide a better repulsion thus saving more energy.
    & is there a training method to increase your string tension effectively??:)
    thanks :D:D

    most Chinese players are using BG-65. Most other Asian players are using BG-66. Most European players are using BG-80.

    Maybe BG65 is the string the "grew up" using and are used to the way it plays. If it works for them then why switch?

    maybe it has something to do with BG65 being the thickest Yonex string, thus able to withstand higher tension?

    I personally think BG-65 is the best string =), BG66 is better in all aspects.. but it breaks wayyy too fast
