    I can never comment on longevity, so I leave this to others I never break anything, but at 30/31 they lose their flavour very quickly, so I end up chewing through them just as fast as if I were breaking them.

    Maybe I need more foresight?

    What other strings are you getting that you will like, so that I can ask you you to cut me set for a couple of quid?

    Two annoyances:

    a) it absorbs stencil ink from the shuttle and gets dirty pretty quickly,
    b) I do wish they wouldn't print GOSEN MULTILADE R4X110 JAPAN every two inches!

    Your opinion is very much anticipated, ice.

    Yeah, no problem, just waiting for my PP UPK to require restringing, after I can break the VS800! And I did try my hardest yesterday to break a string.........

    The VS800 is lasting well and still feels lively, but hopefully not for much longer.

    VS800 is the Great Pyramids of strings... we were doing them at 33/33 for the Taipei boys in Birmingham and they couldn't break it.

    Just shove a kitchen knife through it and get cracking.

    I have a big problem cutting strings out when they are still good (i.e. not broken and still holding good tension). I think it may even be against my religion!

    But I do want to try the Gosen...........Dilemma

    I'm delighted that VS800 has lasted so long and you are enjoying the string. For me it's the dark horse of the Victor family and deserves a lot more recognition than it gets. That and NS880 are certainly worth testing and strings I always carry in stock.

    Another hard two hours of mixed play last night a still the VS800 is up for it!

    I was absolutely battering last night, and still cannot break the string...
    I will give it to the end of this week then make a decision, need to string it before the world Corporate games in Liverpool next week.

    Compared to VS800, this stuff is so... glassy and delicate.

    Glassy....?
    Please explain? Do you mean by glassy that it doesn't grip the shuttle ie for tumbling shots?
    Delicate I get.

    The sound - very high and crisp - and the look. You'll see when you put it in.

    If you ever put it in.

    (It has very good grip, actually - right in BG80's face, in fact.)

    Does it lose tension as fast as the BG66Maximas? That has the fastest tension loss I've ever experienced.

    It loses quite a bit of tension in the first few hours, but "levels off" very flat after that. I think it keeps tension better than BG80.
