Discussion in 'Badminton String' started by SendspaceMax, Aug 3, 2009.
ordered 5 packets from mybadmintonstore. taking them forever to ship it...
is that durability of 9??
I believe it means control
Anyone knows IF this string is available in Malaysia ?
Not available in malaysia.
Pity, looks like I have to purchase online then ...
BTW, to all the forumers who had manage to try the BG66 Maxima, one simple question
What is the TENSION LOSS for BG66Maxima like ? Is it better or as bad as BG66 Ultimax ...?
So far, I have not read anyone commenting on this aspect, perhaps the string breaks before any tension loss is noticeable ?
It's available in Malaysia, saw in in JB.
i m using maxima for 1st day so far i enjoy it
fyi i am fan n using bg66 sharp
Do keep us updated on "tension loss" / retention in comparison to BG66 UM ...
I am still searching for a local stockist in Klang Valley (Msia) area.
Would that be Honly (shop name) ?
I have found all the answers to my questions while reading through the BG66 Ultimax thread hahahaha ....
You can buy at -
I'll check tension loss via n track tuner when I receive it. I used to play with it and it was awesome. Broke both sets after a couple months playing plastic, 3-4 hours/week.
How do these compare to BG85?
I don't have BG85 but I have BG80 since it's my go-to. BG66M doesn't feel as hard as BG80 and the repulsion is better with BG66M. The texture isn't as rough but it doesn't feel slippery like NBG95/98. Haven't tested durability yet since I don't break strings often. I remember when I first had this string, it took about 1-2 months for them to break from hitting a drive. I usually play 2-3 times a week, 2-3 hours per session. But that was before I started stringing for myself, which usually lasts longer than giving it to another stringer.
BG66M will never be good value for money. It should not cost $12USD per pack.
Then how do Yonex BG85 compare to Ashaway Zymax 62? If not Zymax 65?
Zymax will always be better value for money. For me though I get a lot better performance out of BG80 (NOT BG85). I've only heard that BG85 and BG80 are similar, some people even saying BG85 is a better version of BG80. Tension holding on Zymaxes are better.
Any one had tired the pink color BG 66 Maxima string? How it feel as compare to the white color? Please advise.
Feels a bit softer for me than the white one does.
