    Default Which string and grip colors to complement the Yonex Voltric 80?

    I think I've made up my mind and I'm going to be purchasing a Yonex Voltric 80 4U. I'll be stringing it with the Yonex BG-80 and most likely get a Yonex Towel Grip. For aesthetic reasons, which color strings and grip will best complement the racket? I'm looking for some suggestions!

    Hi, I think the vt80 look good with black string, here is a link to my tactic voyager 80 (voltric 80 clone) which is strung with black zymax string. i used to have black carlton x67 string in my old voltric 80 which looked the same. black grips look good with white rackets.

    You're right, it looks pretty nice, but the BG 80 doesn't come in black.

    I've been looking into Ashaway strings lately thanks to Kwun's racket reviews. I have never used them before, but if they have a string that is similar to BG 80's or the BG 85's performance, then I may be interested.

    The ashaway zymax are very good strings especially the 65 and 62 but the 62 breaks easily with mishits. The Carlton xelerate x67 are good strings too. I thought I had bg80 black once but it may have been bg65.

    yellow strings with yellow grip or blue strings with blue grip. BG80 has both of these colours.

    Bg80 is available in black i think. Saw it on my friend's racket. if you are going for black strings i would recommend the karakal tribal grip in black. Goes well with vt80.

    op, what string and tension are you using currently?

    i've recently discovered zm62 and loooove it!

    but anything over 22-23 lbs and it'll break with even a slight mishit

    I'm using the BG 80 at 23lbs. ZM62 similar to BG80? Someone told me Ashaway strings are cheaper so it might be more economical in the long run.

    no string comes close to bg80 in hard feel
    but zm62 at 23-24 lbs would be a good start

    Really? I spent a bit of time and it seems like there are various opinions on this forum as to which ZM strings matches the BG 80.

    Zymax 65 still has a lot of feel especially at higher tension and lasts a lot longer than the 62, the 67 and 70 are still good but not as good as BG80.
