Om, just received my D500 old logo. Question on NS66 tension maintenance? Any suggestions on strings that are somewhat "softer" than BG66 or NS66? Prefer larger medium feel strings that provides decent repulsion.
Just received the NS66 in the mail today. I've not strung it but just by feeling the string, it seems like a very slippery string. Almost like a NBG98 feel. Hopefully control is not as slippery as NBG98.
Just managed to string the NS66. Stringing is very easy due to the slippery surface and stiff feel (inserts easily into shared holes). Stringbed feels EXTREMELY slippery, might be even more slippery than NBG98 and definitely more slippery than BG66. It's almost an oily kind of feel.
I'll be playing with it tomorrow morning, will post back my thoughts here when I can. Not sure how much I'll enjoy the string though, I'm usually more of a control player so the slippery stringbed does not give me much optimism.
