    BG68ti is really common. BG75ti is a japan only string.

    Quite alot of people haven't heard of the BG88Ti ( waza-titan ), BG95 ( not nbg95 ) and bg65power ( micron 65 power ).

    I haven't heard a string called BG95 yet. Do you have a picture of it?

    I think you can check it out at shuttle-house or something. Or check the badmintoncentral review section, there are some reviews on BG95.

    I haven't had them on my racquets but here's a generalised idea of them.

    BG68Ti:
    -Repulsive
    -Not durable
    -Slippery.
    -Note: I tried my friend's racquet strung with this string at 24lbs. He broke it in a week or so.

    BG75Ti:
    -Rather repulsive
    -Durable
    -Slippery.
    -Feels similar to nbg95
    -Feels very stiff.

    Adding to that, BG68ti is supposed to be good for control, I'm guessing not for spinning netshots though.

    BG88ti (one of the best string according to some people) and BG95 are discontinued.

    I tried looking through shops in Japan a year ago, but I couldn't find the BG88Ti. I believe it is now discontinued, it's not in the Yonex catalogue either.

    I didn't like the BG68Ti at all. Most likely it is due to the string being slippery. I can hardly control the shuttle on this string IIRC. I didn't manage to break it though but hated it enough to replace it. I use BG80 on all my rackets (2 of them) now and cannot be happier :D. I certainly prefer the BG80 to the BG68Ti. IMHO, BG80 is more repulsive but still gives better control.

    the 68ti is just a very repulsive, snappy, tight, stiff string.

    great for a wrist player.
