    Yeah can't say I was really impressed with BG80P, but I only played 2 matches with it so I won't pass judgement too soon. Not sure exactly where the 'power' is either because I thought ZM67 at the same tension had more repulsion.

    I will try it again tomorrow night... I really don't wanna have to try BG66S because it's hard to find and I can't get enough supply... Gonna order some BG66M next month...

    I find it reasonable that bg66um might feel more repulsive than BG-80P because its thinner but does bg80p at least have more power compared to regular bg80?

    I was really hoping that BG80P would perform as well as VS850 but without the tension loss issue. Looks like I'll be trying out ZM67 instead, if I could find them here in Malaysia.

    I got my ZM67 Red from stringers world in the uk. Good price, reliable and surprisingly quick postage. And about a third the price of BG80P JP. Can't say I can see the value yet, but I'll know better after a few weeks of use.

    i just strung my two rackets with BG80P.

    N90II - 28lbs
    VT80 - 28lbs

    it seem that if the stringer use the electronic string machine, the tension is maintain better because of the pre-stretch setting. let me try it first... if good, i will not go for those cranking stringing machine.

    Finally got BG80P done properly at 25lbs on my AT900P and I don't like it :(

    Too soft... Not enough feedback...

    You forgot the 'and no power' part.

    Well for that I can blame my technique... It's been awhile since I've used the AT900P.... The smashes sound powerful but is really slow... Miss my Shiden with BG66 M :(

    I reckon it's probably great for advanced players at 30lbs, but so far at 25lbs ZM67 Red is pwning it.

    Also in white only?? What a crock ... or is it white power time :p? I guess they weren't kidding about a shortage in the orange ones ... or they were just premature with their digital leaflet listing both colours for the EX version ...
