Thread: Victor Nano Ti NS-880

I still dont get how Victor decides on the feel of the string
VS850 is pretty stiff and its only labeled as medium while NS880 is kinda soft and is labeled as hard
same goes for racket ratings

It feels like a BG80 but with much less repulsion.
The last strings on my main racket were ZM67 and ZM65. They're extremely crispy compared to NS880Ti.
Power seems to be equal to the probably best string VS850 and the Zymax strings, but it's just dull...
Maybe the string is still in a "break in" phase? Who knows... But it will be the last NS880Ti on my N55...

I have a pair of MX-London, one is strung with BG80 and the other one with NS880ZTi. Both tensioned @ 26x28Lbs by the same stringer. I found the NS880ZTi is less repulsive compared to BG80 which makes smash return easier by a simple touch, and even though the label says "Hard Feeling", it is still not as hard as BG80.
I like the NS880ZTi for more control at the net as I often make the shuttle floating high far from the net tape with the BG80, especially during the low double serves. Also, I can control clear shots more consistently with the NS880ZTi.
BG80 produces a higher pitch tone at the same tension so when I smash it will sound like "BANGGG..." while the NS880ZTi has a lower/bassy tone like a "BOOOMM..."
Both are definitely good strings, can easily become one of the high quality benchmark in the market. The only major drawback from the NS880ZTi is the coating which is very easily peeled-off after a few smashes.

Necro-bump - I've just been sent a set of NS880 in the new packet... and it's completely different. Testing in the week.

Initial thoughts: the new 880 hits a bit harder than the 850, but doesn't have that magic feel or sound. Still very, very good, though, like a friendlier BG80.
880 holds tension better as well, obviously. Chewing gum would probably hold tension better than the 850.
