    no report of durability at this point, obviously. but honestly i am not giving much hope on durability when it comes to 0.66mm strings.

    however, as mentioned that the outer coating is rather stiff so there is some amount of hope there.

    real durability review may have to depend on future users of the strings as i tend to flipflop a lot between different rackets and it is hard to do a reliable durability evaluation that way.

    having said that, i will be switching to testnig a totally different racket and then also testing another string the coming week. the SW35+NS660Ti will have to sit in my bag for a little while before that is done.

    Guess what my source said?

    NS660Ti not available for sale at this time I want it though, so I guess I'll wait till I order my strings...

    i actually don't know when it will be released but probably soon as Victor already put it in their website.

    so given the first run that i had last night, the ns660 and vs850 are quite different. vs850 is stiff while ns660 is soft. they are not supposed to be the replacement.

    the ns880, however, as i was told, will be a stiff string. as for its destined purpose of life in the spectrum of Victor strings... well it does have one, but i shall not reveal at this point. it could be the replacement of vs850, or maybe not. personally i don't know how Victor can improve on the vs850 with a replacement. but we will see if the ns880 can be one when it comes out.

    I think ns and vs must denote different factory as well..

    However, I also notice that some of the older vs strings are made in taiwan as well

    to clarify, it is more like a different OEM. that's why there is the change of manufacturing location to Taiwan. as for which OEM has factory in Taiwan... well...

    played a few more games with this string yesterday.

    i like it.

    maybe my joints are getting old but once in a while having less impact on them on every shot may not be a bad thing.

    the dwell time does need some getting used to but the power is surprisingly good, and good consistently as well. it is more forgiving a string to use than vs850 which is ultimate in feel but hard on the body. the effort and impact is slightly more muted but the result is a more effortless execution of each stroke.

    perhaps in the future when i get to meet this string again, i will tighten it up a pound or two. now when is Victor going to release it!?!

    How would you compare Zm62 to the BG66UM and the VS 660Ti?

    The NS660 is already available in Singapore at E-Link Sports. I strung my BS LYD with NS660 at 25lbs. Ok here goes my first ever string review or any review for that matter

    The feel is like BG66UM but like what Kwun says, it needs a bit getting used to.

    When I first use it, it felt a little bit dull and dead sound. It doesn't sound as great as 66UM or ZM62. Only after about an hour of playing, then you can get that good feeling from the string. Repulsion is great especially when returning smashes. Net shots though needs a bit more effort and getting used to.

    so the final impression is kinda a "meh" for me. the softness is hard to get used to. and overtime as i played more with it, it got even softer and any kind of feel went away.

    perhaps there should be a followup test of this string at higher tension, 27 or even 28 pounds would be better.

    at the current state, the string might end up being cut.

    Cheers, kwun - you just saved me from having to buy some to try.

    I hear it's going to be rolled out slowly from country to country, according to my source =)
