Babolat VS Touch String
I heard this is meant to be the daddy string any input?
Costly though at £19.50p or $38
Caption reads :
First grade natural gut, the very best badminton string money can buy.
I was thinking I may use this next on my Armortec 500.
I'm new on here so I'm not sure if what I am saying is blasphemous mentioning Babolat. Try your best not to shoot me down.
I sould say that Babolat is a good string to play with. But sometimes they lack of feel and repulsion. However it is a good string.
i cant wait to try it as well..
i guess nano 98 will be more expensive as it's 0.66..while nano 95 is 0.68
wrong..it's a .70mm for the nanogy 95.
sorry typo I meant 0.69mm
Nanogy 95 are .69mm
Umm ants are the reviews done yet?
The reviews are done already. But the data is ot with me since i'm not around my area this week.
Ohh I see. This string really rocks well by it's name and thickness.
This string is comming to Canada sometime in Fall.
Hmm that's a good thing.. too bad I can't get it now. HAha
they have it at YO's Sports
That's imported, it's not the offical Yonex Canada distribution.
Nanogy 98 Review
Duration Tested : 4 hours of Game , Racket Armortec 900 Technique Strung at 30lbs self strung with a Yonex Electronic Machine.
Hitting sound is definately nice, i would say the sound is more neat and sharp than Bg66. When come to smash, i find it a little Hard as in you are hitting a shuttle with a Ping pong bat. Probably its because it was strung at 30lbs. But after 1hr of play the strings started to loosen a little. What i mean is that the strings relaxes and found its place in the racket. Repulsion Power is there, well my smash is not that hard but people start to look at my when i smash and do the baseline drives. As if i'm hitting like a pro which i'm not. I like the feel and control of this string. One bad thing is that the strings generate some vibration which at times makes my arms and shoulder uncomfortable.
Initially i thought that this string would snap at 30lbs since its thickness is .66mm. Usually when i use BG66 at 30lbs. It would snap maybe less than 5hrs of play. To test the durability of this string, i ask a PRO friend of mine to Smash as hard as he can. Well this string can withstand 35 smashes before it snap eventually. Pardon me that is after 4 hrs of Ants using it before the Pro use it.
So personally for me the durability issue is there, what do you expect from at .66mm Nano Carbon coated string. But it is much better than a normal BG66 which it would snap at 30lbs after 15 Smashes. So I would say that this Nanogy 98 is more durable and gives you a better control and Repulsion Power than the normal BG66.
Most of you must be saying that i'm wasting money to test the strings and do this review. Hhehe well the effort in stringing is wasted but the Strings is Free! hehehe
