String recommendation for VT 70
Hi there folks!
Finally after a long and agonising wait, I am getting a Voltric 70 for my Birthday
Now, the retailer gives three choices for the strings namely the BG 65, BG 66UM and the Nanogy 98. Until now, I have only played with the BG 65 and I wanted to try something else. Reading through the individual string reviews were a bit confusing since I got the idea that both the 66UM and NG 98 are high on repulsion and low on durability. Which one is the softer of the two? Is it true that certain strings 'feel' better on specific rackets?
My usual string tension is 24lbs. I am usually a hard hitter but am now trying to develop my all round game and learning more of the deft touches, net play, back court net drops etc.
So, what do the experts think???

why not VT80 or zforce?
24lbs BG65 will last you quite a long time compared to the other strings.
If you dont mind getting frequent restrings maybe try BG66/NBG98 @ 26lbs or even the non listed BG80
The VTs are positively dull at lower tensions

NBG95 and BG65 are pretty dull strings, at lower tensions. NBG98 is a good choice but expensive and a bit slippery if you're used to vectran.
If you can't get BG80(great string for the price) then BG66um is your best bet, even though its a big step from the humble BG65.
Once you get used to the thinner gauge strings and consistently hit the sweet spot, you can start giving it more power.
Theres nothing more horrible than smashing at the grommets esp with thin gauge string.

if you use bg80(hardest string) everything would feel less controled then bg65.
i think nbg98, bg66um or bg80p would be a fine go to string. bg80p with the best durability.

I am a little surprised because I have found my favour BG85 which is very much like the BG80 but thinner, offer much better feel and control than the BG65. However, I have strung them at 23lbs only.

Yes i can interchange between BG80 and BG85 very easily. As for BG65 it's really plain at lower tensions but it never snaps

Hehehe!!! But ya you are right! I really am technically deficient to wield a VT80 or a VT-ZF. But that's OK! I do enjoy my game and that's important for me.

Ok its official now... VT-70 is the "BEST RACKET IN THE WORLD"!!!!
Received it yesterday and played a few games with it and I was amazed at the way it played! The shots were crisp, smashes more powerful and defense was a breeze!!! I have a more defensive game and tend to wait for my opponents to make a mistake and then seize the opportunity when it presents itself! This racket serves as perfect foil for the job. I couldn't be more happier!!!

I just got a vt70 and the stringing tension range for the vt70 (3u) is only 20-25LBS. Are you sure I can string it in 26 ?
