    I remember reading on the package that BG 68 TI created a good hitting sound and I remember about 2 years ago I used that string and it wasn't what I liked at all :S and it wasn't that loud. I don't know if it was just me tho :eek: back then I was pretty scrub (intermediate). I recently tried BG 66UM and it just satisfies me out of all the strings I tried because it makes such a clear and good sound. Give it a try ^^

    the best sounding string i have used is nbg98. better than bg66/um/m, bg80/85/65/65ti, vs850, zm62/67.

    never tried 66sharp, but those are hard to find these days.

    x.x I tried NBG 98 and it was too slippery for my liking and the sound sounded... normal to me :eek: do people produce different/louder sound with the strings ?_?

    I played a couple of months with NBG 95 and i liked the sound so maybe NBG 98 would be a good choice as it seems better in all aspects.

    BG 66 is probably great but i doubt I can find it where I am...

    Zymax 62 - the sharpest, highest pitch sound you can possibly find.

    even sharper when the string breaks, which is about every 2 hours if you're a hard hitter, lol.

    imo, 66um sounds better than nbg98. But I personally prefer nbg98 and vs850.

    As for producing a great sound. It's all down to how you hit the shuttle.

    to my ear BG66UM sound like "PING" and NGB98 sounds like "BANG" both have great sound .. which sound you like most :D..

    yes bg66um is more of a big ping sound than a bang sound.

    On my rackets at 24lbs.

    soundwise - bg66um>nbg98>vs850


    my personal stringing preference - vs850>nbg98>bg66um
