    thats a pretty high frequency for that tension. I'm assuming it's 0.65 untensioned

    Yes, 0.65mm

    I am surprised how high it is too. Machine tension was checked before and after with digital scales using NBG-98 at settled tension (waited for tension creep-back from crank)

    1330 Hz at 28.5 lbs?! That's the same as Mark's zm62 at 31 lbs!
    Something is not right...

    Hmmm... haven't measure BG65 before, but assuming it's nicely prestretched and is like ZM70 in thickness behaviour, then assuming 100 Hz drop after a few days to stabilize around 1180 Hz, that'd be about 28 lbs or so ...

    it's about 31 lbs (was forced to do my cross tieoff where kwun does his because bg65 wasn't cooperating) so technically if we do your average you guys got it :P

    Was weird stringing bg65 after stringing mainly bg80 and zm62 for a few months... guess I was spoiled a little

    Whew... thanks to cobalt we have the right answer. Please update us with the readings after a few days and first game day.

    I haven't used an iPhone since switching to S3 for a year, but Clear Tune was the best I came across. Only $1.

    Re BG65, that just shows how much tension loss there is with this string. I had assumed 100 Hz drop like ZM70, but if I had assumed 180 Hz drop, then that'd make it 31 lbs.

    Did you prestretch?

    Just 10% on the WISE. It could probably benefit from being prestretched at 15% but I limit myself to 28-29lbs on the last top cross so 15% is a no go for me at that tension.

    ^ Ah, no wonder... usually with this string and VS850, I'd need 20% prestretch.

    In your case, you'll probably have 200 Hz drop after a few sessions. Keep us updated.

    I've had a look on the appstore and it's gone up to about $4 now. I'm only going to use it to see what you guys are saying and probably won't take it as seriously as you guys so want to see if there is something free instead.

    ^ Then just search for "tuner" on app store. There are a few free ones but iirc they were not consistent in their readings.
