String Recomendation For Hard Hitter
Hi Guys, Please recommend me new string I've been using Yonex NBG98 an um66 so far and they are ok. I'm a hard hitter. I want power and don't much care about durability. Usually string both above strings at 24-26. Any new strings that you think I should try out? Thanks a lot.

i want more explosive power on fast impact like on smashes. dont care much about repulsion i have enough strength to clear the back of the court.

How do u find nbg98 ? I only use this string now because I find it has good power but also reasonable durability. Before I had bg85 at 24lb once, and found it was awesome - smashes were super fast with high pitched sound, but the durability was terrible

I get a lot of power from BG80P, BG65Ti, VS850 and NBG95 but all except the NBG95 loose tension rapidly.
My current favourite all-rounder which seems to have the least compromise of all strings is NBG99.
It gives me almost as much power as the others but retains tension much better than the others. It also has good repulsion and control which I like. The feel is not quite as nice as say fresh VS850 but it is good enough.

Reviews and recommendations will help to understand how a string feels and behaves but when it comes to power, that is something you will need to decide yourself as everyone is different.
Most non-beginners have enough power to clear to the back of the court. So that's not really an indication of "power" as such. Also, one person's perception of a "hard hitter" may be another's perception of "average".

If you're really a hard hitter, then nothing beats bg80. There is no other string like it.

BG80P = BG80 Power, which is different to BG80.
BG80P is softer than BG80 and not quite as rough. I personally prefer BG80P and can get more power from BG80P than BG80.
I get more control and feel with BG80 but definitely more power with BG80P.

if you are a hard hitter then you shouldn't go for any strings below 0.68mm. frankly speaking, I wont even consider them, it just takes few games for the string to break for my case. If you are looking for more power then what you do is to raise your string tension by 1 /2 lbs, provided you got the physical strength to handle the high tension in order to fire powerful smashes, if you don't, you may end up injuring your arm / wrist or you cant generate any power outta your racket. I myself would always go for 30lbs with thicker string like bg80 or the bg 65 for my rackets. Thicker string would be durable and able to withstand high tension .
