    Default What new strings should i get?

    Hello, im a intermediate 13 year old player. In probably the 8th best in my school. I have been noting the strings on my racket aren't as tight as they were before and im getting less power on my smashes. I have a Yonex Volrix Pegasus with a recommended string tension of 18-24lb. I am a player that likes no loves to smash. Are there any good strings that have good durability because i don't want to keep on spending money on strings, but are also good for smashing.

    For Yonex strings, I'd consider BG65 and BG80. BG65 being the economical and durable choice. BG80 is for power.

    For Ashaway, I highly recommend any ZyMax string. My go to ZyMax string is the ZyMax62 Fire, but a lot of people here also like the ZyMax 65 and Zymax 66 Fire. They're all economical compared to Yonex strings, but powerful.

    Cameron, strings are expensive in Nova Scotia.
    Of the small choice available in the local sports stores, I recommend BG-80. Great for happy-smashers.

    Chances are that you have a junior club player at your school who might let you try out their racket/strings before you make a final decision. Good luck!

    Bg 80, nanogy 98, and the new aerosonic. All are very repulsive. 98 is very durable. 80 is pretty good for durability. I've just started using aerosonic. Quite durable for such a thin string, but not as good as the previous two. Waiting to try li ning #1. It's supposed to have good power and retention as well.

    He's playing plastic, so I'd suggest stick to thick strings like BG65.

    If you are a rich man you can order a smorgasbord of strings online and serially try them all. But I would still advise BG80 to start. It is is a hard string to dislike. Good power, good control.

    Personally I'm a fan of Ashaway Zymax 62 and BG85. If you want to try either of those (which you'd be hard pressed to find in this old town) then PM me and perhaps I can get some to you.
    (You just gotta promise not to defeat my kids if you meet them at the local schools tournament).

    Prior to Aerosonic my go to string was BG80P (or BG80 in a pinch). As above I would recommend either version of BG80 or BG65Ti. The BG65Ti is my default string for people who don't know what they like. It's a firmer string than the base BG65 at the same price. Decent all round string with good durability.
