    wow, from the spec, it looks like a great string with high repulsion (10), high hitting sound (10), good shock absorption (8), great control (9), and decent durability (7, same scale as NBG 98, and better than BG80, my favorite).

    really wish to get hold of one soon to try it out.

    Probably a more elastic and better materials.. :rolleyes:

    BG66 only can last for 2 weeks. Don;t know this 0.65mm can last how long? :eek::eek:

    A durability rating of 7 (same as NBG 98) looks promising. I kind of wonder what technology they have in this model, versus the Nanogys.

    This string is as good as Nanogy98 and had a better repulsion and feel compare to BG66. It is more durable as well. I've been using BG66 at 30lbs and it snap often. But when i use this new string.. i strung it at 31lbs and 30lbs on same 2 identical racket. Have good sound, more power on smashes and excellent control. Bad side is ... kinda pricey for purchasing users. But its worth the money for those who love to use thin gauge string but at the same time concern about durability. Get one and try first.. then later only decide to use it for long term. I will be switching to this string once i finish my Bg66 supply.

    If it is as good as NBG98 but cost less, we have a winner ! Definitely keen to try this if it is available here in Singapore.

    It's a JP string. Get it from shuttle-house. Same price with NBG98 & BG66S.

    Hi ants, I tried the nanogy 98 and somehow still prefer the feel of BG66... only gripe is BG66 only last me 4 to 6 weeks... if the feel of this is the same or even better than BG 66...and lasts longer, I cant wait to try this new string...
