    I'll just wait for the international version to come out. Wonder if this will replace my current go to NBG98.

    MarkA can you compare the NBG98 to NBG99 please

    There's no way I'm buying a set of N98 for that, but I think the N98 would probably close the "power percentage" gap on the N99, or even reverse it. Still, the N98 would require "playing in" and would still have that greasy deadness. IMO N98 is just N95 with 10-15% more power.

    Is nbg99 more powerful than nbg98?
    I don't think it would be, tbh.

    I agree with Mark.

    NBG98 requires "breaking-in" process after being strung in a racket, and NBG98 (sometimes) would felt greasy deadness, usually within 3-4 weeks of game time.

    This is different with NBG99, since it does not require the "breaking-in" process.
    After being used for more than 4 weeks of game time, I've never felt the greasy deadness in NBG99. Only feels the reasonable tension-loss (approximately 15-20%).

    IMHO

    "Greasy deadness"? What a phrase! There's quite a few blokes who've had that feeling on a Saturday morning-after-the-night-before.

    Non-JP version now up at MBS, and thankfully it hasn't been priced by an escaped mental patient.

    Just ordered a couple of SP version from mybadmintonstore.

    If this is not-slippery nbg95 with better feel, we could be on to a winner! Surprising it took yonex this long to fix nbg95, presumably its some interrelated process or else someone at yonex is being very stupid.

    Ill put this on a stiffer racket/frame as a replacement of my usual bg80 to reduce the shock.

    So in terms of medium 0.68mm+ thickness (good balance between durability and power) yonex strings we now have
    80 (hard feel, rough-sticky)
    68ti (soft feel)
    nbg99 (medium feel) ??? (hopefully even more durable!)
    80power (medium feel, rubbery-sticky)

    Then
    65 (not good power)
    nbg95 (slippery)
    66 etc, 85, nbg98 (not durable)

    Having played with the NBG99, I have to say NBG 99 is a very unique string (in good way).

    Though both rated as "medium feeling", NBG 99 feels a tad harder than 66UM, which some one may prefer. Though repulsion is not in the same league as 66UM/NBG 98, it is excellent amongst 0.69/0.70mm strings. The sound is crisper than most strings of the same gauge, a clear ping rather than a loud thud. It is not rated as a "power" string, but its power is quite easy to tap. There's no break-in period required typical of NBG 95/98, a big plus for me.

    It has a rough texture coating, and it really makes a difference for me when playing slicing shots. Durability is supposed to be better than 66UM, whether that matches durability of BG65 or NBG95 is yet to be seen (string not broken yet)

    My major gripe with NBG99 is it takes quite some pulling to get the "plastic" out of the string. Also availability and price is not as friendly as some other strings. 66UM is infamous for the gradual loss of feel over time, this problem doesn't seem to exist in NBG99 yet.

    What I like about Ultimax is that I can still get a lot of the feel and repulsion at my lower tensions of around 25, less impact on my arm. I feel like with N99 that I would have to take it at much higher tension both because it's thicker and it's a Nanogy. N95 at 27 still felt dead and I didn't want to string it at 30+ to get it to click.

    So does this grippy feel mean that it is like BG 85?
