    I'm more of a control/counter attack player so how the stringbed feels to me is very important. I lose my touch when the strings lose their liveliness/crispness. All tensions are ~24lbs, not higher than 25lbs, not lower than 23lbs.
    Very interesting, my play style is also similar and feel is most important to me.
    I've played with all those strings except for Adipower, and liked them all. And those figures have been my experience as well.

    BG66UM and VS850 nice feel and repulsive, but loose tension noticeably after 2 weeks.

    ZM62 is great at 23 lbs or less, otherwise it'll break at the first mishit.

    ZM65 I'm trying again at 26 lbs... not as crispy as 62, but surely more durable.
    @llpjlau
    How's BG80 compare? In terms of feel, repulsion, tension retention, durability?

    I used to only play with BG80 but that was before I discovered the ZM series. Now BG80 just feels like it lacks power. Maybe it's just too thick for my liking (0.68mm). Even ZM67 cannot compare to ZM65.

    I disagree with you, with BG 80 the power is there.

    Very happy with the performance of ZM65.

    Ive found my ideal tension at 23x24 lbs and it's been lasting me a long time lol.

    So far it's lasted around 5 months of 2 games @ 3 hrs each per week.

    String tension have dropped a bit but it doesn't bother me much. It has even frayed everywhere and haven't snapped yet. I'm no slouch when it comes to smashing too ( I think )


    What's everyone's opinion on ZM65 @ 23x24 lbs? Would it translate to 26-27 lbs on a thicker gauge string, ex: .68mm?

    The good thing about playing plastics is that string fraying like that has little to no impact on the feel... what feel?

    If playing feathers, I'd cut that without any hesitation...

    Yeah, 1-2 lbs tighter feel, but not 3 lb.

    If you're playing with the cursed Z-slash, then another month, because it's impossible to hit the sweet spot :P joking
    recently i've found BG66UM to last me longer and longer even though I smash harder and harder.
    o_O
    my strings tend to last a month are so, but when one breaks, the others break on the same night ALWAYS
