    Well, here it is. Very interesting, and I haven't even opened it yet.

    Has a strange translucency, looking like (I'm sorry to say) cheapo synthetic gut tennis string. I've taken a picture of the back of the packet as well, and the cross section is very unusual - never seen a baddy string like this before. Seven counter-wound multifilament cores?

    I'll get my tournament out of the way, then test it... maybe on my incoming prototypes...

    can't wait for the review.

    Hmmm. in that picture above (courtesy Mark) CBG200 is positioned at the bottom left of the quadrant. What the heck does that signify?? Could some kind soul translate, please?

    according to the picture on the back of the package, cbg100 and cbg200 are totally different structurally. i wonder if cbg200 is comparatively softer because of the space between the inner strands?

    anyone play with it yet???

    I bet we'd see BG85 in the upper-right corner. If so, we'd know exactly what to expect from C200.

    the string looks so dull, it's a sleeper string since people might think it's the cheap string that goes on the educational rackets for high schools and stuff

    I'm beginning to think you don't care much for this string!
    I called my the local YY dealer, she says Yonex Canada may bring this string in next year
    I really wouldn't mind trying it out on a really stiff, even-to-moderately-head-heavy racquet...

    Well, as luck (?) would have it, both my rackets went at the tournament, so it's the perfect time to give the C200 a whirl. Any ideas of an advised maximum for this stuff? My instinct is to just whack it in at 30 as usual...

    P.S.

    Nice! At least you got something in return for your efforts...

    Totally not the same. No clue why they even bothered putting "BG80" in the name!

    really? i just thought it would be a more powerful bg80 but i guess it's time for another comparison if there isn't a thread about it already?

    Well, hard part's over: it survived one of my 30 lb string jobs.

    It strings a lot like gut, actually, including the pictured bruising from the clamps (but not the puller, thankfully), but it didn't lose as much slack on the prestretch as I was expecting. Pitch is surprisingly high for such a thick and soft string.
