thanks of replies...
Can you define "best"? price, sound, repulsion, durability etc….
best in ???
i can only say my preference
BG85 because of it feel ..
never seen BG68 myself, but I played NBG-98, BG-66Ultimax, and BG-85. I definitely prefer NBG-98 or BG-66 Ultimax. among the two, NBG-98 has better durability. for me, NBG-98 is my preferred choice for winter.
correction for my post above. Never PLAYED BG-68Ti myself. saw one of my friends using it ONCE, who then switched to BG-80.
I prefer BG85. The others all have nano/ti coatings and I find them quite slippery/numb..
My personal preference is BG66UM.
Used BG68 Ti before, never a big fan of it. NBG 98 gives you more power and durability, but the string is slippery and has a numb feel. BG66 UM has better feel and decent repulsion.
One thing to be aware of is after a while (2 months) BG66 UM will start to loosen and tension will drop, by then the string feels dead and you will want to restring it. Durability is quite decent for its gauge.
You may want to consider ZM62 as well. Not quite the same feel as BG66 UM but also a good string. Cheaper price as well
Everyones needs, technique and strength are different and so the choice of string and tension are different.
The best way is having 3-4 same rackets and strung with different strings at same tension for discovering their advantages. Own experiences costs a bit money but are the best with most intensity.
Btw: BG68 Ti and NBG 98 are slippery. Not good for slicing if you slice alot. BG66 UM has the greatest repulsion of this three, good touch and good feel. BG66 UM is my go to string @ 26 lbs.
I never tried BG85.
It seems that i am the opposite of you, i have tried all of strings mentioned above except BG66UM. My favorite of those is BG85... I will try BG66UM for sure..
BG68Ti is quite nice as well, i will use this string whenever BG80 sold out.
I can't get BG85 here. Try BG66UM and string it 2 lbs higher cause it lose tension quicker than BG80.
go for bg66 sharp ..
i am quite sure you will never or cant turn back !!
