    I use it on all my rackets and frankly I have never blamed the string for any lack of power. It's certainly done well for me. I have used all those strings you've listed before as well and while they were all excellent strings with their own faults they didn't fit my play style as they didn't give me enough control especially NBG98 as it was too slippery for me and 66UM's feeling and tension simply dies even faster than VS-850 and it can't be strung as high to let it settle in for me because it would break too easily.

    Of course eventually your mileage may vary.
    ya, it does not suit my style, it has power but the feel was dead, i dont like the feel or maybe not suitable with my racket as the string was too stiff

    ^ don't worry... I was a previous vs850 user too, and have not looked back since switching to zm62 like you.

    Zm62 better in control, repulsion, tension retention, except for durability. But if stringing 23lbs or less then no problem.

    Great for you. But for me any mishits with over 23lbs result in a broken string.

    As Mark said if Victor sort out the tension loss of VS850, it will be the string of choice for me. I still use it ocassionally but the tension loss is just too much. I prestretch and string a few pounds higher, but it doesn't seem to help really.

    So I am beginning to think it is more than just tension loss. Once the tension goes, the string feels like a different string

    If I can be bothered to restring my racquets regularly the tension loss wouldn't be a problem but I can't. lol

    I've tried the NS30 and it's the only string that I do not agree with Mark's view. It doesn't feel like VS850 imo, but it certainly retains tension better (not amazing but better). To me, it feels more like the Zymax strings and a little bit dull in terms of feel but responsive enough. It gives a bit of a "cheap string" feel in my opinion and doesn't really give that much feedback. I struggled with , but control is OK.

    Currently testing the other Victor strings and going back to NBG99.

    Yeah I know... not saying he's incorrect, as with all these things it's subjective.

    I don't get along with Zymax strings either but then again its one of the most popular strings around.

    Have to say though... 30lb and plastic! Interesting combo!

    Indeed. I suspect I'm going to have to re-test the thinner strings at 32... the Panda has suggested I give Z62 a go at 32 or 33...

    I don't get along with Zymax strings either but then again its one of the most popular strings around.
    I have to say the Zymaxes don't have the "specialness" for me, either (save Z62, of course, but only because it's a freakish sorcerer's string).

    At 32 you've got to absolutely blast anything you want to reach past half-court...

    Could anyone confirm with me if there's a difference between the two strings or it's just the packaging? One is "CONTROL" and one is "POWER". Just seems really weird to me.

    zm62 fits all styles of playing...
    well, except for mishit style of playing...

    if it's durable enough for your swing and your tension, once you've tried it , there's no going back...

    if your racquet allows an extra top cross (i.e Victor MX series), the breakage isn't that bad
