    Very nice chart. Although i really wonder if the difference between say a 8 to 10 , is the same as 6 to 8.

    Another thing that isn't included in the yonex rating is tension loss over time which i think makes a pretty big difference in choice of strings.
    But anyway thanks for compiling this chart.

    very difficult/impossible to calculate loss of tension over time, I asked the same question when I first started stringing a few years ago, am surprised the manufacturers don't supply the information for stringers.

    I have a packet of bg66 Maxima bought recently, the durability is 6 not 7 . not sure if it has been changed since the release.

    Is it? You'd think BG80 is about the worst string you can get going by this chart :p

    While most of the specs look right, I wonder if there are some inherent biases built into this...personally, I think bg80 should be ranked higher...but I guess personal preferences subside within me :D

    Hi,
    I just bought Apacs Feather Light 200 strung with BG66 at 25lbs. The racket is very light and easy to control but lack of power to clear shot from rear court. What the best string for the racket and should I lower the string tension? Below is the racket specs.

    APACS Feather Weight 200 Specifications :
    Frame Meterial: Hi Modulus Graphite + High Speed Frame + CNT
    Shaft Material: Hi Modulus Graphite + CNT
    Flex: Medium
    Weight: 69 +/- 1g (7U-G2)
    Length: 670mm
    Max Tension: 30lbs
    Balance: 285 +/- 3mm

    I have added in the rating "Resilience" to describe the feel of shuttle impact on the string bed which can range from soft to stiff from the stretchability of the string. I have also revised the "Feel" rating to describe the impact feedback as blunt or sharp due to the various coating or thickness of the string.

    Finally the overall formula has been revised to include more factors (and at least BG80 is no longer ranked at the bottom now).

    Another thing to note is that the most recent durability ratings of BG65 and BG65 Power have both increased to a solid "10", as according to the new Yonex 2011 Catalogue.

    Bro Ezish, i been using Nbg98 for quite sometime and feel that it should only got 6 for its durability, 1 point higher than BG66 and below BG 80. Maybe it is 7 for JP coded ? But if SP coded than it will certainly be lower

    i have a friend who uses the same racket with nanogy 98 strung at 25lbs as well. ive tried the racket and ur observation that it lacks power and lacks the ability to clear the baseline is very accurate. it is however quite a fast racket for switching and drives, ideal for front players.

    i think the nanogy98 string did help a lot with the repulsion power but i'd go for a string tension of 22-23lbs. due to the design of the racket itself, its not meant for power, too much effort has to be put into it...
