    Question HELP, Sub string for zm65

    What would be a good substitute string for a zymax 65?? I can't find any available zymax 65 in any local stores here...

    I'm thinking of zm67, bg80 or bg66

    I'm using MX-JJS, I would string it at around 27-28lbs

    any suggestions? what among these three strings would have the closest feeling to a zm65.. thanks

    Repulsion wise, ime ZM65 is better. On top of that, ZM65 is crispier n has more grip due to its rougher surface.

    The Li-Ning No. 1 is also 0.65 and has a slightly more rough texture to BG66. I'm not sure how it holds up to the ZM65 though

    Might just go with bg66um for the meantime,

    But I have another question, what is the biggest difference between zm 65 and 67?? Besides string thickness and repulsion???

    I'd say feel/touch. Just like the difference between zm62 and zm65.

    You gotta be kidding me. Those two strings are not even close, apart from string gauge.
