    Had played zm62, 67, and bg66um @ 25 lbs past few weeks. For me 62 had the best repulsion, feel, sound, crispness, and grip on the cork. Durability was doing quite well at 20 hrs of play with feathers, until I made the mistake of playing a game of plastic with it. One mishit at the bottom and it was gone.

    I'll have to string 2 lb lower for plastic.

    Strange thing about the 62, it has a medium hard feel with soft touch shots (eg net, drops, blocks) which is good because of excellent feedback, but on hard shots (eg smashes, clears, hard drives) the stringbed can be felt to sink in momentarily and then rebounding back with good speed. This seems to give it greater repulsion. This is unlike 67 and 66um where the bird is felt to leave the bed immediately without that sink in and rebound feeling.

    I hate inflicting plastics on a lovely set of strings

    I played for my school at Uni last year just for a interschool thing they do and it was played with plastics. Broke three sets of strings within about 40 minutes. I obviously can't blame the plastics completely (since my techinique is definitely far from perfect) but they are brutal for strings.
