    I prefer the bg80. Bg80P feels less powerful IMO. Not sure if my technique is wrong or I don't have enough power to bring out the potential of Bg80P. Stringed both Bg80 and Bg80p at 26lbs on my sw35.

    Me too. The BG80P is more of a medium feel but plays the same as a BG80.

    Used to use bg80 but ever since bg80p, I prefer bg80p but e downside is, both aren't too good at retaining tension. Strung at 26lbs. Played less than 3mths, I can feel that the tension is lost.

    I love this string coming from BG80 regular (27lb). It feels a little softer, like about a pound of tension lower so actually I can go one pound higher and have faster, more accurate hitting. But it's broken way easier than BG80 when mishit. I may have to go back to BG80 when all 30 strings are used up.

    why don't you try both and write down your experiences with them? Like does your placement improve, does your smash improve angle/power, etc. Then you'll have a comparison and know which string to choose.

    I strung a tp505 at 26lbs last week and it kept its tension fairly well until I played with it last night. It's dropped 2lbs already. The tension is even lower than my vt80 with bg80@25lbs strung 2 months ago.

    Next time I'm gonna string it 1-2 lbs more than normal to account for this, otherwise seems like a good string and if durability is good it will be my new string.

    I had a smashing session the other night. Tension dropped from 28lbs to what I would guess is 25lbs. That is quite a change but not unexpected.

    Hello, I am pretty new to this stringing stuff but I'm using nbg 95 right now @ 22 lbs (because I play with plastic birdies and thats the most my MusclePower 23 can handle) but they have lost tension so I am going to replace them with BG80P. I really like nbg 95 but I don't like how it has no feeling and sound from it unless I put in a really powerful smash. So does BG80P have a better feeling and sound than nbg 95? Also is the power better or same as nbg 95? Thanks

    Oh yeah, I also forgot that it's a bit slippery for me. Hard to control shots.

    Default **Necro***!!!

    Hey guys sorry for the necro, but was hoping for an update on that string! It seems like it was dull under 28 pds, any info on 28+? If you had to choose between 80 80p 95 and 98 what would you go with! thanks

    I have been trying out the BG80 Power for about a month.... On my Z-Slash at 25lbs, I wasn't comfortable with BG80 and neither am I comfortable with this string....
    I found that BG80 was too hard for my liking, the BG80 Power felt slightly better from the medium feeling however I felt that around the net it was lacking and I couldnt have a feel around the net, my net shots kept going to high and really annoyed me as my preferred string BG66UM is able to prove me with.
    Over heads are satisfactory.... It could be better, the sounds is so so.... Smashes were good, better than the BG80 as I had to adjust my swing to hit the sweet spot and it didn't help as I was using my Z-Slash at the time

    I'm finding the BG80P a lot more durable than the regular BG80. I'll probably go for some BG80 next time to try and figure out which I prefer.

    There isnt any ideal tension for particular racquet... only the preferable tension that you can play and handle comfortably...

    Used to use BG80 a while back, then moved to BG66UM and have been loving it except for the durability. Found that I prefer medium feel more than the hard feel BG80 gave after restringing one of my rackets with BG80 recently. Have been playing with BG80P on and off for a few months but have now started using it more again. Definitely softer than BG80 which is what I like. Strung at 25lbs.
