    Havent checked the grommets...actually dont really know what to look for..heehee...I trust the stringer is good; I had previously strung the same racket with a thicker string years and years ago and it had lasted until recently when I broke it. I was told that the string was a cheapo one cos it looked thicker than most of the yonex stings currently available...but heck, it lasted and I dont feel any major difference in terms of power or feel... BG85 certainly feels different...thought there is less power and feels certainly "flat" compared to BG 66....

    I have several rackets strung by Soh. I kinda prefer his stringing and have no problem so far. BG85 and BG80 will take a bit more tension to come alive.

    That's odd. Don't Yonex recommend you use 2Lbs (or is it 10%) less tension with the BG8* than BG-66? Isn't is due to the coating they have?

    The flat feeling you describe is nautal because of using a thicker string. Once you will get used to it, you will do fine. With BG-85, you would come to like the control the string provides.

    Thanks for the input guys... I just have to try and get used to BG 85; hope it lasts longer; I actually strung my racket with BG 85 but at the same tension of 22 as my BG 66...

    Different issues... Yes, there is a recommendation on the pack that BG80/85 should be strung at 2lbs lower than normal.

    For me, both BG80/85 come alive at >=24lbs. Below that tension, both felt a bit dead.

    my string tension is 26 lbs, if I use:

    BG 66 = it last only one week
    BG 85 = last only one week
    BG 80 = last one month
    NBG 98 = last two weeks
    NBG 95 = last one month

    i played 3x a week, 3 hours in every session...
    i played mixed, mens doubles, more on power play...

    Well...first I used NBG-95 and i really liked this strings because it gaves me a strongly smash but a few time ago i tried BG-65 and i'm really happy with that strings...I started playing much better than i played with NBG-95 because i got much more control, mostly when i'm playing near to the net.

    (sorry about the english mustakes, but i'm not very good in english xD)

    string doesn't break but the tension changed overtime if you play on a regular basis, so I couldn't generate much power as I could with my newly strung racquet. So I just think that tension plays a big role in this case.

    I played 2x per week for 2-3 hours each session, I played with Ashaway Nano Superlight, VR Electro, Wilson K Blade all strung with BG66 at 26-27lbs.... it's already more than 6 mos and the string still looks fine. But it feels dead already... i guess i have to replace them...

    Yes....I heard that too, even Yonex themself describe that they are less durable due to thinner string, but true ...better repulsion power. But somehow mine last more than 6 mos hahaha...
