    Sounds like there is a newer version which is Zti like the 880zti. So I have the older ti version. Presumably the newer one is a harder feel.

    Do I need to start a new thred/ask a mod to include zti in the title ofthis to keep dicussion on it in one place?

    I have played with the old version but not the new. I'm not particularly interested in thinner gauge strings so cannot forsee me stocking it.

    If I'm having to back off my tensions for the forthcoming 4U rackets, it might be nice to go thinner as well... if I can find a Zti, I'll get a couple.

    Make that three
    I presume MBS do the new one? I got old from Eric so I might as well compare as I need to place an MBS order soon. I'm happy with old 880zti and feeling the string, 660ti will suit me fine.


    Edit. MBS showing new package but no mention of zxion on it per 880zti. To the victor website!

    So far so good. Power, control, sound all better than expected on plastics. A candidate for prestretching I think though.

    Do a 30 job for me - I'm switching to 4U rackets soon, so I'll have to back off from 33/34...

    Is NS-660Ti as slippery as 66UM? I'd like to know this because the jaws of my drop weight don't like slippery strings. No matter how I clean them, they won't grip 66UM well.

    If you send me the string I'll do it I only got myself the one pack.

    Anyway, you two don't measure properly (28*30 vs 29*31) and only one of you uses constant pull. What frequency would you expect from a 66@30? 1300?

    Not scared, just know it will lose me power. Challenge accepted but I'll have to order it. Will be bonkers for control and I always test on plastic.

    My serve and smash defense are much improved. I think this shows I slice too much. I think I'm at the limit of my power if we go on lack of string movement. Also I've never hit harder sound is so-so, I expected more crispy. Net shots no worse, except one cross court that the slice didn't take enough pace off.

    Good solid all rounder, will buy some more and attempt to test durability at 30lbs. If I can even string that on my pro's pro machine.

    Strings lasted me 3 weeks exactly at 27x29

    They definitely still had a while to go but snapped due to a mis-hit from me!

    Just got this string strung on my LN N50III @23lbs. Not a fan of Victor strings at all (except the VS850 which is amazing when strings are at peak performance), the reviews so far here seem ok so would be interesting to try it for myself.
