    Default Hybrid? Thinking of BG80 & BG66....

    Has anybody tried this hybrid or any other combinations?Thought I might try 66 but would be too expensive due to frequent breaks so thinking of 80 for mains and 66 for crosses.Cheers for any input

    In my past experiences, hybriding badminton strings don't really make much of a difference. Try it yourself and see if you like it. Preference is all that matters.

    i have also asked the same question a couple months ago and everyone who responded said that it doesn't make a difference, so i didn't bother. let us know how it turned out for you if you are going to try it out

    There's almost always a string whose characteristics lie between the two you're going to "mix". The only reason to hybrid, IMO, is to get crazy colour combinations... which is no bad thing.

    Haha I like that... I ordered blue and violet I think...! Might clash a bit on orange and silver rackets!

    I think its not a good idea to mix BG66 with BG80.
    BG80 is very rough and the BG66 is very thin, so the BG80 will destroy the BG66 very very fast.

    Don't you think the opposite might happen? The sliprier string (66) cut into the rougher 80?

    No I think the BG80 will work like a rasp.

    i think so,BG80 is very rough and the BG66 is very thin, so the BG80 will destroy the BG66 very very fast.

    Well it's not snapped yet

    Feels pretty nice, ultra repulsive coming from month old dead feeling BG80P.

    Sound is rather nice as well.

    Bust one last night

    BG80 3rd main so I think it was probably a fluke rather than incompatibility of materials.

    I have another 700FX strung the same and more string so will go again....

    Strung replacement strings at 26x27 machine indicated on NR700FX - felt a bit dead and lacking power last night but might have been the hall / shuttles / opposition.

    Tournament tomorrow so will get a proper feel for it.
