    If it can match BG80 then that'd be nice. I kinda doubt it though.

    Nowhere near that amount of grip. Indeed, nothing I have encountered so far can match the Vectrans for this.

    Ahh, thanks for the info.
    Well, I have some NGY99 in my man-cave awaiting an eligible racket. I'm quite curious, but in no hurry to cut the lovely ZM65 currently in use.

    Maybe it might be the tension difference, but I just went back to 28lbs with the 99s while my other zforce strung with 66um is still 24lbs. Nonetheless, the sound I get from the 99 is invigorating. My drives also became sharper as well but tension was probably also a factor in this... I'll check again once I string both my zforces at the same tension but with different strings.

    I had nanogy 99 in one racquet. It played fine. Rather like my nanogy 98...

    I can't detect a big difference but my nanogy 98 was already 1 month old. I'll try to compare the newly strung 98 vs the 99

    finally tested the nbg99 at 26lbs.

    - quite a repulsive string but feels spongy compare with the nbg98.

    I think I will stick to a thinner string like the nbg98 and 66 ultimax.

    How does this string perform compared to 66UM in term of tension retention?

    Anyone suggest or tried NBG 99 on arc10? If does, what is your tension? Bear in mind some arc 10 fans tried NBG 98 23/25 end of story. Some recommended by stringer to strung >26 to unleash an arc10 with bg 66um. Your thought pls.

    I haven't played with NBG99 on Arc10 but I have strung NBG99 on that racquet for someone. In fact, NBG99, NBG98 and BG66UM, all three of them, on the same Arc 10.

    The tension is at 30 lbs for him. He's a good player and hits hard (strings always pop in the centre, no signs of mishits). Here's the string life on his racquet (it is actually winter now in my place and it gets pretty cold and dry):

    BG66UM: 3 days.
    NBG98: 5 days -1 week.
    NBG99: 1 1/2 week - 2 weeks.

    Thin strings play better than thicker strings at low-mid tension but I think for NBG98, higher tension is needed to reduce the "numbness" and "greasiness" typical of NBG95/98. For comparison between BG66UM and NBG98, both are quite good strings. BG66UM feels softer, has very nice sound, has better feel but loses tension and feel overtime. NBG98 needs a bit break-in time, is a bit slippery and very powerful.

    NBG99 is different. It has a rougher texture than those two strings but not as rough as famed BG80. Repulsion is not as good as those two thin strings said above but is very decent for its gauge. It also has a nice hitting sound.

    Update. I switched between the two racquets - one with Nanogy 99 and the other with Nanogy 98. Both done by same stringer and requested tension (28lbs)


    I find the 99 a little less responsive though definitely adequate. Spinning the shuttle is not much different. Smashing is adequate with both but I like the sound with the 98 more.

    TBH I find the strings are different but not extremely so. It may just boil down to personal preference. I'll stick with 98.

    I didn't string with NBG 98 so I cannot comment. I personal feel much responsive when NBG 99 match with my 3U VTZF at 30 pounds.

    when u put ngb 99 on ur Voltric Z force , its definitely become heavier when u hit the shuttle, its so God damn TRUE.
    the repulsion wasnt good enough ,the best part is u can feel and control ur power when u play pin point , its really accurate

    Anyone got a data point on the NBG99's durability? How many hours of play?

    Based on personal experiences, and comparing to NBG98, NBG 99 is more durable for me.

    Formerly, my NBG 98 lasted only for 2 months

    Currently, I have been using NBG 99 for almost 3 months and there is no sign of wear at such string

    I play 9 hours per week.

    IMHO
