    Hi,

    Just wondering what people found were a good string with this raquet? Iv just got it and i was thinking maybe nanology 98 or bg80 power? I want power and currently use a bravesword LYD with nanology 98 @ 25lbs which i get pretty good power. But i want all out power with some hint of durability.
    Cheers :)

    Mine had BG80P on it until recently, it was a good mix. BG80 is awesome too and I have Victor VS850 coming to use next.

    I agree with all three.

    My Meteors both have VS850 in.

    It's tricky to get hold of here; I'd email Ben at Victor UK (info@victor-sport.co.uk) and ask about vendors.

    Or you can just do what I do and get it by the mile from mybadmintonstore;).

    I prefer nbg98 at 27lbs... Best feel for me. Better than at 25lbs

    It's just me - I'd rather wait than pay.

    You should never be in the position of needing string now!, for me.

    Yeah its is on the expensive side but nice to know i can get it :) Yeah i liked the ng98 at around 27 too but i was just getting through too much string so had to drop it a lb or two.

    Maybe i should do my 2 LYDs - one in ng98 and the other in 80p and test?

    ZM62.
    BG66UM.
    R4X momone.

    Yeah I am a big thin gauge fan. But those are worth a try. All strings mentioned have nice control, high repulsion and amazing sound :D

    Identical rackets are the ideal test-bed.

    I have done it! I finally decided to do it in NG98 and then i can directly compare the JJS with the LYD.Also as MarkA agreed i have strung my other LYD in BG80P so i can then compare the string directly against each other on the same racquet. This then will help once i snap the JJS string for the next restring.Thanks for all the suggestions for string, i think i will be getting a few packs in and over time do a lot of testing :)

    I have two JJSs one with VS850 and the other with NBG99 at the same tension. I personally prefer the NBG99. One of the best tension holding strings Yonex do and the best all-rounder imo.

    It doesn't quite have the feel of fresh VS850 but it does have very good power, control, tension hold and decent durability to make up for it.
