    You need more details for us to help you.

    For example - What string feeling do you like?
    Style of play?
    Durable string or performance string?
    What tension you normally use?
    How long did your string last before it broke?

    I am not sure how your game is being affected by this - unless you're using the racket with the broken string on it. If you're using an alternate racket, then it makes sense..

    ehhh NBG95 is stiff and you are an intermediate player so thats a bad match.
    i suggest trying BG 80 or staying with the standard string bg-65

    thankx for the reply,
    well my style play play is smash based or aggressive and i want to concentrate more on performance than on durability.
    I like the same tension yonex originally uses on its rackets.

    I am not able to deliver powerful shots in game. I like the string bed yonex originally uses in its rackets, but want some more powerful string and at appropriate tension to generate max power with some control.

    I like the 85 but the best tension for you can only be found by testing. You need to find the tension that gives you the best overall power and control that you're happy with.

    then for sure your perfect string would be BG80 at around 21 tension?

    i am confused between bg80,bg85 and bg68ti. as all three of them has great power,
    i like the feeling of yonex strings originally strung by the company itself, now iam confused whether they have soft feeling or hard feeling, and i want the same feeling, so which string should i use.

    bg80,85--with hard feeling.
    bg68ti---with soft feeling.

    yonex stock string isnt that good.
    infact most of the baddy players cut them and restring right away then they buy a new racket.

    If you want durability go for bg65 soft feeling (not titanium)
    If you want power go for bg 66 and bg80

    bg80 for me, lasts about 3-4 weeks, and bg 65 definitely lasts longer than 3-4 wks

    Also, dont forget about the +2 on the cross
