    I wonder if N95 would have done the same... had YY not apparently dipped it in bacon fat afterwards.

    N99 vs N95 shootout coming soon on my twin TPros - same rackets, same tension.

    Hi Licin

    I am gonna participate in FTB's Badminton Gathering, next sunday (15 April) at Lodan Sport Hall, Ancol starting from 12.00 pm to 18.00 pm Jakarta time.

    If I'm not mistaken, it is located near your home. :D

    Hopefully you could spare your time and join the gathering too.

    Hmmm....99 seems like a nice string based on its specs. Could it be the new 98 since it's such a thick string? Or new 95? Guess we have to wait for a review.

    Does anybody know what color is available?

    I've been using it for the past 3 weeks. :D

    I strung it in 27x27 Lbs @2 knots with my VTZF.

    In brief, indeed it feels quite better in terms of control, in comparison with Ultimax and NBG98.

    But for repulsion, I feel Ultimax is still better compare to NBG 99, whilst NBG98 is in equal feeling with NBG99.

    Durability wise, cannot answer it yet, I usually broke my string within 1-1.5 months (approximately consists of 40-50 hours of games). I would update the review when this string has been broken.

    I noticed just now, this string is thick..
    0.69mm

    looks like a very durable string

    @clawhammers:
    so, this string would be an upgrade from NBG98? looks promising

    @Avengers = I wouldn't say that NBG 99 is an upgrade from NBG 98. It is a different product, although it still within the sub-brand of Nanogy.

    NBG98 felt slippery due to certain coating, whilst NBG99 felt quite rough (IMHO).

    ps. = since you are Indonesian, there is comprehensive review at tepokbulu about this product. Hope you may find it useful thereunder. :D

    After trying clawhammers's VTZF 4U-G5 strung NBG99JP at a tension which i forgot to ask :p ..

    In my opinion, NBG99 is a nice string, which somehow reminds me to BG80..The surface is quite rough, although not as rough as BG80, but still it is rough..

    Yes this string looks promising.. I am waiting the SP version though. Wonder how SP NBG99 will perform.

    Well, here they are - NBG99JP vs NBG95JP. Interesting that the 99 is a "control" string and the 95 is "durability" despite being of the same thickness. Anyway, we'll see.

    Side note - didn't know N95 came in royal blue:).

    @Mark - Use your finger and feel the different of the coating over these strings, respectively.

    :D

    Well, the head-to-head will have to be postponed: I was pulling the last cross of the 95 when the 8-10 main loop went "bang". Dodgy grommet, methinks (let this be a lesson - don't neglect your grommets, especially if you're a high tension, serial stringer slag like me). Thankfully it wasn't the 99, so a complete grommet swap on the other TPro and it's sitting pretty.

    In all honesty, though, I don't think it would have made much sense to compare the two directly anyway. NBG95 is greasier than a teenager's forehead; NBG99 isn't. Not even close. If anything, it's like the old Zymax 70 - not BG80 rough, but it made a heck of a din being woven. The "control" classification now makes a lot more sense.

    It did give a lot in pre-stretch, though, and here it is like N95; the WISE did "chatter" a lot more than usual while pulling as well. Neither bodes well for tension holding. Also did the classic N95 "pretzeling" when being pulled over main loops, so there must be some DNA in common after all.

    Really nice sound at 30.

    I wonder when it will be available in Europe? Yonex have it listed on thier website but I just checked a couple of retailers and none of them have it listed.

    Tried the N99 today, and the results were so counter-intuitive that I'm ordering another set of boggo N95 to stack against it.

    I've seen N99 available for pre-order on Tennisnuts - by the reel, no less.
