    Which string have you used that are closest in feel, performance and sound to the BG66UM ? Have tried Bg85, NG95, NG99, bg68ti, none comes close.

    Currently have Bg66UM and NG99 on 2 identical racket (Bs11 4UG5). The Bg66UM gives me much better control and feel than the 99.

    Agree BG66UM loses tension rather quickly. But focus on fresh vs fresh if I can.

    The BG66UM is a .65 string, have you tried another .65 to compare? If not, I'd try there first.

    Zymax 65 would get my vote, or possibly the 0.66 Victor (I forget what it's called).

    Go for white Zymax 65. It hold tension alot better and don't feel dull after 2-3 weeks.
