a bit confused here. I've been using bg80 all my life, switching between 80 and 85. 85 is thinner, and with more repulsion. Which suppose to mean that it should be able to generate more power. From what i've been told repulsion = power + control. Lately, I had a tight budget on strings, and i've decided to try bg 65ti. I got it because 1) i've NEVER played with .70mm only stuck to .68 and less. 2) ran out of bg 80s and 85s, and it cost a lot to string those 3) needed longer lasting strings. What i've noticed is that i hit a lot better with bg 65ti and it feels so much more crisp compared to bg 80 and my smash is much faster. tension i used has always been 25-26 lbs why is it that with 65 ti i can hit a lot harder than with 80s and 85s? Do stiffer strings actually generate more power then thinner strings? or are they both the same, and its the tension that separates them apart? ie. inorder to get the same feeling as bg80s strung at 26, i would have to string bg65ti at 30? and why do people prefer to use thinner strings over thicker strings? I've recently fixed my technique but i haven't tested out bg80s yet because i haven't snapped any of my strings. Thanks!
