    Default Yonex Nanogy 98 Vs Yonex BG66 Ultimax Vs Yonex BG66 Maxima

    Yes, I know this question has been relashed a couple times here now and then but I can seem to get my answer. Could any of you guys who have had experience with these 3 strings share your thoughts?? So here's the question...

    Price, Durability, Texture, Grip, Sound, Control, Feel, Shock Absorbtion and everything else out of the picture and just focusing on 'Repulsion/Power', which of these strings would be your pick? Please state your tension as well.

    Take a look at BG80 Power too. Even tho its labelled as hard feeling, its not that "hard"
    A very lively string.
    I now use either Bg80 power or 66UM. 66UM loses tension and feels dead very quickly tho.
    Bg80Power still feels fine and seems to hold tension a lot better.

    I like the BG66 Maxima most here, but all 3 are not hard feeling strings. I find NBG98 the softest of the 3, even at 28lbs. No love. Durability wise, I am not a hard hitter, so they are all good, at 27-28 lbs. Sound is nice on both BG66s, and NBG98 is indeed very slippery, which sucks.

    Overall, the feel of BG66 Maxima is just .... Nice ...

    But just in terms of power, which of these do you think has the most power?

    And does the BG66UM, BG66M and NBG98 feel dead after a period of time?
    I'm okay with stringing anytime. No matter how often.

    They're all powerful in my opinion, but I have to say the NBG98 is slightly more repulsive. It's also the dullest of the 3 here. Maybe it's bcoz I don't like its soft feel and slippery texture.

    My BG66UM black is still quite new, and I rotate my racquets, but it seems to be holding well. When fresh, it sure feels oooh .... (Y). - BS12N KRP at 28lbs

    How would you compare Maxima and Ultimax?

    Yeah, almost the same. I find the Maxima just a tad soft feel than the Ultimax. But overall both strings feel really good. Both at 28 lbs.

    Does the Maxima have inconsistency like the Ultimax. Feel like dead string so fast?
