03-17-2013, 06:38 AM #188
i've tried BG80P on my voltric 80 on 26lbs. the hard feel was excellent for me and the repulsion is amazing. just dont know how is BG80 compared to BG80P. a lot of people say that the BG80 is one of the best string ever, but i haven't tried it yet. should i switch to Bg80 or no? (now i am using VTZF)

I've used BG80 For 5-7 years. Now I switched to BG80P.
IMO, this string should not be named BG80.
It's actually a mix of BG65 & BG80.
The way BG80P hold tension is more like BG65. The first few days drops some tension, and then holds tension for a long time. Regular BG80 holds tension very well in 2 weeks & then become unplayable.
If you don't play much, I think BG80P's performance will be more constant.
No big difference.
Within 1 week BG80 is a little better.
1 week to 2 week=> equal performance
more than 2 weeks => BG80 sucks
BG80P has more control due to more contact time with the shuttle.
However, this have to be done with good technique.
If you hit the shuttle without adding a little slice or flip, the control is poor.
Bg80P offers better power.
Feel & Sound:
Totally different. BG80P feel like a harder BG65 with vectran. It's not BG80.
BG80P is actually a revolution version of BG65.
BG65 with better repulsion and control would play exactly the same.
I'm not saying BG80P is bad. BG80P's performance is at least on par or better than regular bg80. Just that it's too different to be named Bg80.

very nice review. thank you very much. think i will choose BG80 instead of Bg80P

After some hours of playing, I can't say I prefer one over the other. BG80P has a softer feel to it than the BG80. I can't really tell much a difference yet.

well i like hard feeling. hope that the harder feeling from Bg80 will be the best for me

Strung BG80P on my MX-60 @24lbs .. Repulsion wise is very good but BG66 Ultimax is better. Power wise is good too but I felt BG66 Ultimax travel the shuttle faster (Ultimax strung @26lbs)... The bad news BG80P snapped @24lbs in 3 weeks time (play only 2-3 hours a week) and on the other hand my ultimax @26lbs still not snapped after 6 weeks.. I prefer ultimax for the first couple of weeks after that it lost all it attribut ...BG80P is more consistent in all the attribute.. Sound wise I felt BG80P sounds low note boom ...ultimax sounds high note boom...

I'm not sure about the guy above me, but I strung my bg80P at 23/25, playing 6-7 hours a week, didn't snap at all. Only reason why I changed 5 months is cause they wore out.

waiting for my NS8k to be strung with BG80P. I used to have BG80 on the NS8k, will post here after I get to play with it.

BG80P is another string I've been eager to try, I have couple of sets waiting for a racquet to use it on. I'm not a fan of BG80 because I find it too hard, but I like the roughness, sound and repulsion.
If BG80P is as people say it is, then with it being a little softer it might just be the right string for me.

Played with BG80P for a couple hours, I found it to be a little dull compared to BG80. I actually strung BG80P at higher tension than BG80 so not sure why it felt more dulll.
I'm sticking with BG80 now.

i have put BG80P on my new N55II and it just felt almost the same as the victor VS850. Softer than BG80 everything else seem similar/same... I like it, it's a bit easier on my joints...

I have an nano speed 100 strung with BG 80 POWER 25/24 lbs red it is a pretty good string but I don't like it ad much on my
Perspective I think you should stick too bg 80 normal , I strung bg 80 23 lbs on my arcsaber 009DX.

I wonder if Yonex plan to 'phase-out' the BG80 with the power version in the same way the ultimax replaced the BG66? I hope not as I really like the original.

Just following up on my comment above.
I've strung my BSLYD with BG80P at 29lb and have to say it feels very nice indeed. I previously had VS850 which played very well but lost tension incredibly fast, and with it playability too.
BG80P is similar to VS850 in terms of feel but is more powerful. I would have preferred it if it was a little rougher but it's not bad.
As others have said, it is a softer version of BG80 and I cannot agree more. I don't like hard strings like BG80, although the repulsion is there, I do like to feel the shuttle more. So I think BG80P suits me better. In terms of power, it's outstanding. Definitely better than VS850. I didn't have a chance to hit 100% power smashes with it, but even with 80% power smashes, I've noticed it is more powerful than the VS850. Control is good overall, but as it doesn't feel as rough as fresh VS850 or BG80, it's not quite as good for net play...
Overall, I think this is so far the best string for the BSLYD. But it's too early for me to say how well it holds tension.
For those who prefer BG80 but want a sharper and more repulsive feel with nicer sound, may I suggest BG85. It's essentially a thinner version of BG80. I'm testing this on my ArcZSTH at 29lb so far, with a few test shots, it feels quite good. Will know more after club night this week.

Well, BG80P seems not as powerful as BG80.
I suspect the power goes from the string itself to BG80(P)<- package
Sorry for the bad joke. IMHO Yonex designs BG80P for players use high tension (28lbs+). It feels softer compare to BG80 at same tension (if you string it <28lbs).
But beyond 28lbs, it feels hard and powerful. Stick to BG80 original if you play <28lbs.
