Gosen Roots B505
Gosen Roots Aermet (BS-310)
Gosen BioGut BioRoots 68 (BS-807)
currently forced to use 65Ti due to lack of stock of 65. I bought myself some 65 string purple and royal blue and will switch to these when my current strings begin to fail, which might take a year or so...heh...i don't hit too hard all the time i suppose
Gosen Bio Aermet (BS-810) or Bio Roots 70 (BS-808) for feather
Gosen Roots (B505) for nylon
BG-65 for durability, the rest don't seem to be too beneficial and their cost adds up after a monthly restring.
Hehe Cooler thought you might come up with that one.
BG85 for me. Had high hopes for Ti-strings but they disappointed me everytime.
I dont hit that hard so it lasts months.
Still looking for more longer lasting string...
BG80 Dies in 3-4 weeks... BG70Pro dies in a month or so...
Bg66 for the nice show off sound
Used to use bg68ti. Now using Victor vs-2003.
1) Gosen Bio Gut Bio Roots - 68
2) Yonex BG - 65
BG80 and CBG 100
Gosen Roots B505 is about equivalent to the Yonex BG-80.
I've used use BG-80 but it kept breaking very often. Gary of Tads asked me to try out the Gosen B505 since he said they are about the same and B505 lasts a lot longer so I gave it a try.
After playing with it, it was really good since you can feel a bit more and the strings made more of a pop sound since the string uses synthetic gut. The roots does stretch a bit more than BG-80 when breaking them in so I say about 3/4 pound to 1 pound higher than what you would do on your BG-80.
Very good thing about the B505 over time is that it doesn't develop kints and nics like the BG-80 where the string breaks at the nics later on while the roots just last until they finally break (no indication).
Hope this helps.
I never tried the newer Roots like the Bio and others which were released so I cannot make a comparison with them. I probably would try it I guess when I get a new racket. I wonder if B505 is still available too since I don't see it listen on the Gosen website.
