Discussion in 'Badminton String' started by Badominton, Sep 19, 2010.
Sad but true. Great string for the first couple of sessions. After that....
Strung last week my MX80s with BG66UM at 28X30lbs. First day it was amazing and quite powerful but after a week it feels not as good as the first day. I will switch back to BG80. I think BG66UM holds tension not good.
Maybe u should try ap101N , its same feature as bg66UM but hold the tension longer
what is the cost?
At around S$17
BG 66 Ultimax is the greatest string I ever had and the worst string in durability.
If BG66 UM is fresh it performs very well. After 3 weeks it feels dull and dead. I think Victor VS850 and Head Super Power 67 are the worst strings in terms of durablitity which I ever tried.
Yep.....ideal Tournament competion string. String your racquet compete and then cut it out...LOL
I think I will give up using this string... though it feels good initially, but after the tension drop, it is basically just not good anymore...
Agree with you.
It's not called 'Ultimax' for nothing!
Ultimate repulsion......Ultimate feel.....followed by Ultimate tension drop and Ultimate s#!tiness.
Still, the best string ever.
Haha... am thinking now to switch to BG80 or NG98
You might like the Nanogy 98 because it is similar to the BG66UM but there are a few differences...
For me I didn't like the BG80 I don't even know why
I have tried using BG80 once and not quite like the hard feeling too.. but ppl say it needs some time for the string to settle to feel good... so I might wanna give it another chance. As for NG98, never try before. Hope it retains it tension much better than BG66U
I can say it does but the power you LOVE from the BG66UM might not be there
Tension does drop a little but i feel it is a matter of the stringbed softening more than tension dropping. This is already a soft string and i m sure everyone knows even before the tension drops/string softens, the string goes dead in about 10 hours of play before it even starts fraying. A very good string but not economical for recreational players. Pros have no qualms as they string on every match.
Try Victor VS650. Same characteristics but better.
Tried it. Snaped even faster than the 66 UM
Hi there, anyone ever try the 66UM CH version ? Any different from SP version ?
i'd like to know too.
and how much are you guys paying for bg66um?
