    Finally an honest durability rating.

    I hate when they make new strings with .66 or less gauge and rate durability like 8/10. What's that supposed to mean ? 8 hits out of 10, the strings will not break ?

    Looking forward to giving this a go. If you're low on grips, why not order some G09 or G11 and get a few of these strings as well? At least that's what I told myself :p

    Strung at MX70 28 / 30. Very clear hitting sound, more crisp then BG66. Medium Feel to little bit Hard. Repulsion similar to 68Ti, Power superb.

    Om, just received my D500 old logo. Question on NS66 tension maintenance? Any suggestions on strings that are somewhat "softer" than BG66 or NS66? Prefer larger medium feel strings that provides decent repulsion.

    Is it a rough string like bg80 or more slippery like bg66?

    I'm very interested to hear something about this string. Especially holding tension and surface.

    Just received the NS66 in the mail today. I've not strung it but just by feeling the string, it seems like a very slippery string. Almost like a NBG98 feel. Hopefully control is not as slippery as NBG98.

    I'll be stringing the NS66 on a Kason F9, only playing this Friday or Saturday so I'll post up my thoughts after.

    Just managed to string the NS66. Stringing is very easy due to the slippery surface and stiff feel (inserts easily into shared holes). Stringbed feels EXTREMELY slippery, might be even more slippery than NBG98 and definitely more slippery than BG66. It's almost an oily kind of feel.

    I'll be playing with it tomorrow morning, will post back my thoughts here when I can. Not sure how much I'll enjoy the string though, I'm usually more of a control player so the slippery stringbed does not give me much optimism.

    On the other hand, slippery means power. Even more slippery than NBG98? Wow, that should be a lot of power.

    Strung mine as well, very slippery, more so than any I've tried before including NBG95/98.

    Will give it another test before I make any conclusions. However, since it's 0.66mm and I play with plastics, my results will not be the same for those that play with feather.

    Is there any feedback on the performance of this string yet?

    How does it compare to the Ashaway Zymax line?
