    Hello. I'm an intermediate player that's looking for a good string that offers high hitting sounds and repulsion for nylon shuttles. I'm aware this is hard to find since most of the good strings that offers these properties are often used for feather shuttles. However, I only play at a club that offers nylon shuttles. What would be a good string?

    ^^ those are good strings but for feather only, because being so thin, they won't last more than a game with nylon shuttles :p ...... for that, I'd recommend zm65 ... hard hitting but yet not too harsh, excellent tension retention, powerful

    I use the BG66UM on an ARC10 with 28/30 lbs and sometimes using nylon shuttles. good feeling, good repulsion and (for nylon shuttles) good sound.

    I was thinking of using Nanogy 95 once again since it has that durability factor and nice repulsion to it, however, I don't want to get my racket strung, and then in one session, break my strings. I want something that could last me for some time before the string tension starts to drop.

    How would you compare the ZM67 with the Nanogy 98 and Ultimax? They're both thin strings. I play 2 times a week and was wondering what was best.

    Interesting, but does it have the durability factor though?

    From my experience with those 3 strings, ZM65 is more durable. The other 2 strings would notch and fray way before.

    Can ZM65 be able to last a while with nylon shuttles since it is such a thin string. However, is it durable enough to last long?

    I know it's been awhile since my posts, but have any of you guys tried the luxilon badminton supersense string by any chance? I want to give this a go but heard it's one of the most stiffest strings ever made.

    Do you like soft or stiff strings, also is the hitting sound required?

    Soft: BG-80P. My favourite string of all time. Has a nice soft feeling, which not too many appreciate. Has a soft to loud thump sounds depending on impact. Very durable and repulsive.

    Hard: Nanogy 98. It feels like a BG-66 Ultimax (I'm sure you've heard that before). It has a sharp feeling, fairly durable. Explosive power is also a plus, and the noise is more of a snap/click.
