BG65 Power or BG80 Power?
Hi players/stringers, I am restringing my racquets soon but need help choosing string. I wonder the thicker BG65 Power or thinner BG80 Power really "perform" with my VTZF, ARC10 and AT900P. Never strung these before as I wanna give a try

Just give em both a try if you can. No matter what people say here, you may love or hate a string because it is so personal.

Thicker string = more durable, and not as much "bite" i believe (helps with control shots). Usually are a bit "Softer", so they wont hurt as much if you are not well conditioned. Generally can be strung at higher tensions as well.
Tension is the biggest factor i'd say. High tension means more power is available to be released, but if you aren't strong/good enough to unleash it, your power will decrease dramatically. High tensioned strings generally have a bit more feel to them as well.

Basically, if you like to have a "Hard feel" meaning to feel the shutter more when it leave your string bed, thicker string is your choice. And vise versa...
Other performance attributes are as stated by Yonex.

Try BG80P. It's one of Yonex's newer strings. I have it on my VT-ZF @ 27lbs. It provides me with ample power and decent control. It has a softer feel than the regular BG80.
Note: my opinion based on my skill level, racket choice, string characteristic preferences, and string tension.
