    Default Best string for nylon birdies?

    I'm
    Currently 14 , I use bg 80 power 24/25lbs and bg 80 23lbs, I'm a singles player but this year at my
    School tournament I was singles than the coaches decided to move me to mixed for a better possibility to win, but w/e still singles but back on topic something I smash from the back I know I'm hitting it hard I know my form is nice and clean, but they also lose so much power , the strings I'm currently using are not bad but I'm looking for strings that have good repulsion , sound , and durability like the bg 80s thanks in advance (:

    nby98 is probably the most repulsive string from yonex... give that a try

    has very nice sound and is just as durable as bg80

    edit:
    oops... just saw the nylon birds part... the above is applicable for feathers

    for plastics, you'll need something stronger to be durable, like zm65 or zm67

    ZM65 fine with nylon. The repulsion helps but I've not used it so much as I strung this racquet for feathers.

    I can't say I've ever used a string that played appreciably worse with plastics than with feathers (but durability is affected, I think).

    Just try as many as you can - at a given tension - and pick the one you like best, then try that one at as many different tensions as possible and pick the best of those.

    I have been using the BG 70 Pro for 3 years of playing plastic birdies and it gives you good control and duration too. I string it on my ARC10 in 27lb.

    I've used the BG65 and 65 Ti for plastics, good durability and no noticeable change in performance between plastics and feathers

    70Pro is touted by Yonex themselves as being a "plastics" string, but I hated it - played like a plank of wood. Durability was pretty much second-to-none, though.

    If you've been playing with the BG 80 Power, the BG 65 Ti will suit you better than the BG 65, as the 65 Ti is rated hard feeling like the BG 80 Power. Personally I prefer 65, but that's just me!

    I just finished my high-school season in badminton at my area. I used a racket with Bg66 Ultimax and a racket with Bg80P. Of these two, I would say I prefer the Bg80P. It's softer, packs an unexpected punch, and fun to play with. Also, not sure what part of Canada you live in, but here in the GTA, we use nylons.
