    Bg 80 power is better in power but lacks in control a bit, doesn't have a rough texture like bg 80 so I don't really like it & nbg98 is catered towards control and it's very slippery from what I heard.

    IMO don't go for BG80P because i'll feel that BG80 has better power than BG80P at the same tension. I have never tried NBG98 but, what i can say is: it is a bit more expensive and i've heard on BC that NBG has good power but not so good control.

    98 being slippery is totally difficult to control , but it is indeed one of the most repulsive strings around...

    We can meet up somewhere... I can sell you a set off my reel for $7 which is what I paid for.

    But wait, you play plastic or feather?

    Power: NBG98 > BG80 Power
    Control: BG80 Power >> NBG98
    Feel: BG80 Power > NBG98
    Durability: Can't answer. At my tension I break strings in 2-3 weeks or cut them due lost crispiness.

    If you are searching for power go for NBG98. But IMO BG80Power is a good allround string. A bit softer than BG80 but not as spongy as NBG98.

    Pretty much right on.

    The general concensus for NBG98 is that it is a durable string despite it being thinner, more durable than the BG80P IMO. I strung NBG98 at 30lbs for a client and it is still going after 3 months.

    Only downside is the control because of its slippery coating.
