    Ok I've had 2 sessions with the NS660Ti @ 23lbs. Not impressed at all. Power is considerably worse than the Adipower Pro that I've come to love. Control isn't much better, so I'm not sure what the NS660Ti can offer. Probably does not fit my style.

    I've just seen new version in the photo of my latest order, I had old previously. Will be sending a set to one of my minions to test around 30lb, I'll have to give it a go around 26. I was going to use this for low tension 'no preference' customers.

    Has anyine tried old and new version? I thought I remember mk1 being silkier and softer. I've got a bunch of mk2 and it feels plasticy like vs850. Looking forward to trying it anyway. I'll expect to need to prestretch.

    Please compare this to Zymax 65 for me.

    I've strung this for someone at 25x27 to replace ultimax which was breaking too quickly. So far they prefer it! it feels at least 2lb softer at same tension though. It's kinder on mishits, maybe due to being the equivalent of 2lb softer but control and power are good. Certainly a lot of power and some very nice booms from being hit well.

    26lb 660ti vs 24lb bg66u comments to follow, if he ever uses the ultimax again.

    Durability still being tested but it's looking good. I think this string is very soft, but I need to try in a racquet I know, not someone else's. That will be recitified with a head to head against NS66 soon, in identical racquets.

    I will also see how it handles at 28x30 later on.

    25x27lb 2nd gen done. Love it. Sounds mental, really sharp classic thwack! Very nice balance of power and control, on fresh feathers. Plastics to be tested. Feels very forgiving so I'm guessing it's still quite soft. Yet there is plenty of power with just a quick wrist flick. 1220Hz off the machine 48hrs ago. Played just now at 1150, so a bit more to drop I expect.

    More testing required but at this point I don't think I'll be cutting it to put ultimax in for a tournament next month.

    After that, I'm very tempted to see how it handles up at 30lb. I think I've found my replacement for MP66
