    Definitely agree for power and durability but definitely not for touch, control, finessee and feel. :)

    I will do a comparison review of all my favorite strings and break them down.

    For just power, stiff: NBG95, NBG98
    For just power, soft: Ashaway ML, ML-XL

    For all-around, stiffer strings, I like:

    BG80, BG85, BG66, BG70Pro, Gosen BS810, R4300, Pro70, Tactic TG-80

    For all-around softer strings, I like:
    Ashaway MP, PG65, PG66

    Heard that there is only one shop in SG which carries it in by themselves
    but they are out of stock now... am waiting for stocks to arrive to try it out.

    No such thing. It is probably a fake string if it is on the market

    W&D have this for £13 + VAT, and if you pay within 7 days you can get 5% off. 0.75 and 0.70 versions are available. It's worth asking if they have Nanogy 98 now, as well.

    Er... don't know if it's ok to post here or not leh?

    I managed to lay my hands on a set... now sitting in my bag and waiting
    for a while more to be up in my racket as I just got my racket restrung for
    less than 3 weeks than the stock arrived... the pack I got was the last
    one...

    Maybe if you keen, drop me an email and I can see what can be done for you.

    nano 98 its not as good they advertise
    I prefer BG 66 Sharp
    One advice for all of U who want to try out this string,don't put it in the high tension,because it will be sucks,different from bg 66 sharp wich is good in high and low tension

    Yes, kristian is rite.
    In Jakarta at the same tension with different stringers will result different.

    not all of them, some have properly calibrate their machine, so the % deviation is little.
    but it doesn't really matter, specially if u string at the same shop everytime

    NBG98 is very good strings..
    Sound good with good control and repulsion.
    Great for defense.
    But it last too long...
    Maybe it is nanogy.. it straches but doesn't break!:rolleyes:

    And after a while is kinda lose and slip around!
    And because it is not cheap, you really want to
    play til it breaks.

    For me its last 3 - 4 time the regular BG66 strings! ;)


    I also tried the cyber natural 100, it has great control,
    but is some what weak on smaching..
    And it doesn't last too !:(

    nbg98 takes too long to break??..lol how hard can u hit?..or did u just string it @ a low tension? i broke it within 3 weeks..=p..but yea..nbg98 is one of the best strings i've played with..and..its not THAT expensive..if you get a whole reel from shuttle-house..like what I did..is a pretty good deal..

    24lbs is what I normally string..
    I guess I don't hit hard..
    But what I mean is 3x longer than BG66
    for me..
    (and much less vibrations too.)

    NBG98 in a reel?

    Since when it is available ?

    I will be in JP again soon..
    I will get couple rolls 4 sure.
