And after trying all of them and spending USD600 , you will find that the BEST racquet is still ..... Carbonex 20
I have stopped searching on racquets after my last round of going through all the top-end racquets by YY, LiNing and Victor ... none came close to the trusty Cab20 !!
My search is now on STRINGS that I love .... trying out Gosen and Ashaway strings now .... top contender from Yonex is BG65 and BG66 ... BG66UM loses out on $$$$$ - cannot afford to change every 2 weeks !!

Maxout. Let me know what strings you choose. So far I have tried NG95 @28lbs (too slippery and hard feeling), NG99 @28lbs (not very different to NG98 but more expensive), NG98 @ 28lbs (the compromise of feel and durability and better than BG65)
In fact, the strings I have like the most in the past are BG66 and BG85. They have the wonderful 'ping' sound and spring loaded feeling on the racquet. But this is going back 10years ago

Right now, I am using Gosen Multilade R4x100 @22lbs on my Cab20sp .... very thin gauge 0.63mm ... better than BG66 in all aspects including hitting sound !!
HOWEVER, I am not sure if it can withstand 28lbs ... it was written on the packaging that recommended tension is from 20-24 lbs .... but you can give it a try if you like !!
Next in line, will be Zymax 65 ...
Gundamzaku, sorry for "short hijack" ...

Technically any brand can offer such customization as you call it, "all" they have to do is measure each and every racket and label the actual bp and weight instead of keeping it broader. Any store could even present it as such if they go the extra mile (like Panda and RKEP ) ...
If you want to compare you'd probably want a Customworqs vs Trinity vs RKEP9000, maybe something ~86gr 295mm bp, though you still'd have to doublecheck the bp for customworx (whether measured with or without strings; once I got to the end after toying with the tool it said "strung bp" all of a sudden)

zymax 65 is goooood better than nbg 95,98, and 99
- good power/repulsion
- LOUD *BANG* when you smash
- pretty durable (didn't break it yet)
- ^ all that AND it's cheap

I agree with fellow hijacker, visor, that z62 is a lovely crisp string. If you like BG85, then you'll like Z62. (Visor is right, the world needs more "parp" sounds!)

I think zymax62 have many different versions. the zymax62 red came along with RKEP PRO 9000 which i bought from eric was really great string. that one even better than my fav nbg98. other zymax62 reds i strung in Singapore were not that good.

If you hit consistently and cleanly, it's a great string though. Very comfortable with it at 29lbs. BG66UM is marginally better, but so much more expensive it isn't worth it for me.
