Yonex BG85 Vs Yonex BG66 Maxima
I've pretty much had my eyes on getting a packet of 'Yonex BG66 Maxima' for my Karakal BN60 racket. But after looking through a few threads I became curious to see how the 'Yonex BG85' compare. Firstly, durability and price aren't a factor and I'm okay with endlessly stringing again and again. Hitting sound is not important at all too but if this comparison ends in a tense tie then I guess it will become 1 of my last factors to include, however, I don't expect that to ever happen. My top 3 aspects for a string is 'Feel', 'Power' & 'Feedback', arranged from 1st to 3rd. I play singles more often and don't use power to win but use angle to pressure my opponent around the court from left, right, back & forth. I usually do net play and I play with feather shuttlecocks. I will string my racket at 28Lbs via the 4 Point/Knots method.

if you are really into feel and feedback, then stop going to Yonex and look for other strings. here are a few that i'd recommend:
Ashaway Zymax 62
Gosen R4X Momone or 110

I would second Kwun's recommendation. In addition you can try R4X100 (.63, thinner gauge than R4X110).
Hope that helps.

Nope, I'd disagree with Zombie. BG66UM is a medium feel string, it doesn't provide as much feedback as a hard feeling string does, like BG80 IMO.

Thanks for the suggestion guys, I will definetely do some research on 'Victor VS850', 'Ashaway Zymax 62/75/67', 'Gosen R4X Momone/110' & 'R4X100/R4X110'. But in your opinion, which of these 2 strings would you chose? The 'Yonex BG66M' or 'Yonex BG85'? Please tell me your pick of these 2 strings and your explaination. I will compare my favourite of these 2 against the rest of your suggestions.
