    Somehow I don't really get this. What does "hitting" and "sharp" mean reality? I get hard hitter and control player but that doesn't fit the matrix since CBG 100 is a control players string.

    How can BG66M or BG68Ti be closer when BG66UM is in the middle of those two? You can always also try 68Ti since it has some overlap in the original chart, not bad either ...

    Not really, why? I don't see any ratings ... I don't think BG66M is like BG66S, nor is BG66UM simply because BG66S is 0.68mm and the other two 0.65mm. Well not at the same tension anyway ;)

    Here are the Yonex ratings (if you want to take them seriously). You should just try BG68ti and BG66UM (perhaps 66UM at lower tension 1-2 pounds)

    Perhaps this is usefull as well: http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php/83900-Yonex-BG66-vs-BG66M-vs-BG66S Of course that was written before 66UM was out. I don't think the price difference is worth picking 66M over 66UM ...

    What is so legendary about 66S anyway :D? Only because LCW uses it?

    Did anyone notice certain changes to specifications of Yonex's strings (Year 2011) ??

    I just learned from shuttle-house that Yonex changed the ratings of certain strings.

    Details of such changes are as follows:


    BG 65
    Repulsion 6 – increase 1 point become 7
    Durability 8 – increase 2 points become 10
    Control 6
    Shock Absorption 6
    Hitting Sound 6


    BG 65 Power
    Repulsion 7
    Durability 8 – increase 2 points become 10
    Control 6
    Shock Absorption 6
    Hitting Sound 7


    BG 66 Maxima
    Repulsion 10
    Durability 7 – decrease 1 point become 6
    Control 9 – decrease 2 points become 7
    Shock Absorption 8
    Hitting Sound 10


    BG 68 Titanium
    Repulsion 9 – decrease 1 point become 8
    Durability 6
    Control 7
    Shock Absorption 7
    Hitting Sound 8


    BG 75 Titanium
    Repulsion 8 – decrease 1 point become 7
    Durability 8
    Control 6
    Shock Absorption 5
    Hitting Sound 7


    CBG 100
    Repulsion 8 – decrease 1 point become 7
    Durability 6
    Control 10
    Shock Absorption 9
    Hitting Sound 6



    Nanogy 95
    Repulsion 8
    Durability 8 – increase 2 points become 10
    Control 6
    Shock Absorption 6
    Hitting Sound 7



    Nanogy 98
    Repulsion 10
    Durability 7
    Control 8
    Shock Absorption 8
    Hitting Sound 9 – decrease 1 point become 8

    Has someone used BG65P and how is power hitting with P as compared to plain BG65. Has someone felt significant increase in speed/power?
