    I've got these three rackets and I was wondering what string I should put on...

    Of coz, the first consideration is the durability
    then i would like to fully utilize the smashing power of 9900 and 9000x. should I use 65Ti??

    For the 9000s, i want to play control instead of smashing, what string will you recommend(should be durable...no 80 or 85 please)??? and what tension is best for control???

    tension would be entirely dependent on what you are comfortable with. you can go really high tension if you want a killer smash, but if you cant handle super high tension then your shots will suck. also it will be hard to clear the bird the first few days. basically, you asked the same question that has been asked several times, but stated what racket you own at the same time. there are many threads explaining the different cause and effects of string tension, and you should look up string reviews. if all you care about is durability, go for bg65, or bg 70pro, if bg80 is not durable enough for you. and use the tension you always use for the new rackets, or slightly higher for your stiff rackets, and same as always on the control racket. if you don't know your standard tension, then i recommend 22 as your base since that is a generic choice.

    i own a 9900 and a 9000x and i have these strung with bg-80 at 30lbs which i find excellent to play with. i get the control i want while having the power and durability.

    My NS9000X is currently at 26 Lbs, the NS9000S is at 24 Lbs and my friend's NS9900 that I'm borrowing due to a broken wrist is at 26 Lbs. The NS9900 has NBG 95s while the other two are using BG 70 Pros

    i just got my new NS9900 couple weeks ago. i had it strung with NBG95 @ 25 lb. after playing since, i cut the string yesterday. i hated the feel, or none feel, of NBG95. the string feels damp, no response, and no sound. i restrung the racket with my favorite string BG68 TI @ 26lb. i'll see if that makes any difference.

    can the ns9900 really hold tension more than 25 pounds? i'm looking to buy this racket but i saw that the max tension would be 25?

    If you string it above 25 the yonex warrant doesn't cover it - I've got mine NS9900 strung with a BG80 12kg (approx 26lbs). It's not like the string lasts for ages, but for the racket itself, there doesn't seem to be a problem.
