    On the other hand, slippery means power. Even more slippery than NBG98? Wow, that should be a lot of power.

    Strung mine as well, very slippery, more so than any I've tried before including NBG95/98.

    Will give it another test before I make any conclusions. However, since it's 0.66mm and I play with plastics, my results will not be the same for those that play with feather.

    Is there any feedback on the performance of this string yet?

    How does it compare to the Ashaway Zymax line?

    +1. since it's slippery as some mentioned, how does it compare to NBG 98?

    meant the performance comparison against NBG98, not the stringing feel.

    I tried to play with that string.

    My stringer tried to string my mx80 with the NS66 at 25 lbs. String broke the first time.
    He tried a second time but results were the same, string broke. At that point i thought it was the stringer's fault so i went to another stringer with a slightly lower tension in mind (24).

    The second stringer was able to string my racket, but it broke after exactly 5 smooth shots. Anyone else got a similar experience? or even a different one ?

    Anyone tried the RKEP Ti-70? I'm looking for a practice string and a middle of the road string for the normal players that'll want stringing done.

    yeah, today! very smooth, stiff and plasticy. PM your address and I'll send you a pack.

    no chance of playing with it, I put it in the cracked powerblade which lasted about 30 seconds out of the supports even at 20lb

    Does this play similar to the ti70 but thinner? I'll add some to my next order.

    Got a reel a while ago, now it's testing time

    Despite Eric said never string more than 26lbs I have strung my Triotec T6 at 28x30 lbs without problems.

    As others said, the first thing you notice is that the string has a very smooth texture. So smooth it reminds me of NBG98 and Nanomicro. String itself has a medium stiff feel, somewhere between those two strings. It almost feels oily, also not as quite "greasy" as NBG98.

    The string is a "true" 0.66mm string, unlike some of other "claimed to be thin" strings, like powergut 66 which actually sounds and feels more like a .68mm. Combined with the slippery coating the stringing process was quite a breeze.

    The string produces high pitched, metallic ping sound which I very much like.

    Will be playing tomorrow, more updates on the way

    As expected, very clear and resonate sound from this string, though nothing beats sound coming out of Zymax 62

    I would say this string is medium feel, leaning a bit on the hard side. Power and repulsion is evidently there and there's a lovely crisp feel to it as well. Tried some clear and drives and I really quite liked it. Then I feel more confident and start firing some smashes. Good for several smashes, and then I broke the string, fourth main from the middle, right in the middle.

    Would be on my favorite strings list if it can survive through off-centre hits at higher (27lb+) tension (A tall order for thin strings, I know)

    Got a few packs of NS660 Ti, have strung for clients but not yet played with it myself. NS660Ti is a different beast IMO, very sleek string and feels soft. I personally prefer textured, harder feeling thin gauge strings but string choices are very personal.
