    Hhmm. .. What is the tension for both?
    Fyi, it cost me RM25 with labor. Not cheap.

    I don't think we should compare price between country. This is not fair.
    so, I'm comparing AP62+ with BG66UM in term of performance vs cost.
    i don't might to spend another few more RM just for BG66UM or BG80P.

    ap62+ is really a good string. i've 5 other racquets strung with bg66UM at the moment, because i have them at 26-27lbs tensions where the ap62+ is less durable, if not it would have been my string of choice.

    After let it settled for 2 weeks, it more live and repulsive. Don't feel any tension loss, if loss should be min.

    Tested the AP62+... my verdict - definitely not going back for this string. Just not for me. Found that the string is too thin for my liking. When hitting shuttle, can feel the thin string and not much control. Repulsion wise is good and tension holding is also better than BG66UM. Found that the string also moves a lot. I strung at 25lbs... maybe not high tension enough or just that the string is slippery.

    The most important cons for this is bad durability. My string snap today after using for less than a month.

    LOL ..... finally.
    Agreed with you.

    I'm waiting for it to snap but until today no sign of wear :(
    Regret to strung my both TI-10 and VT80 with this string.
    Let give it one more month before cut it off. Feel wasted.

    BG85 even much better but not durable [hey it last me 4 to 5 months].
