    Default Harder string than BG 80?

    Hi guys,

    I'm looking for a string that has a harder feel than BG 80.
    In the past few months I have been trying many different strings and still haven't found any I like more than BG 80.

    Here are my feelings about the strings I've tried:
    BG 65, BG 65 Ti, BG 80 Power: too soft feeling
    BG 66 UM, VS 850: nice feeling but too soft

    Is there any string that's similar to BG 80 but has a harder feel? Is BG 85 worth a try? Some say it's a better version of BG 80 with reduced durability.

    Some info:
    Racket: N90 III
    Tension: 29.7 lbs (13.5 kg)
    I don't really care much about durability or tension loss as long as I like the feeling.

    I haven't tried the string yet, but you might be able to find luck in the Gosen R4X 110 thread. BG80 might be harder but I don't know.

    Unless you can find Kevlar badminton string, BG80 and BG85 are as hard as it gets.

    IMHO, based on personal experience, in terms of feel the ZM65 is a tad harder than BG80 (if not as hard). In terms of performance, they play at the same level. Their only difference is in their hitting sound, wherein the ZM65's like a whip cracking while the BG80 has this deep metallic "ding".

    I have both strings strung on the same rackets at the same tension (currently trying out different strings to address BG66UM's performance issue due to tension loss). I don't have a powerful smash and tend to play a controlled rally/control-type game so I rely heavily on string feel and control to get points.

    ZM65 and BG65 harder than BG80? No chance in the least.

    I believe if you want harder and crispier than bg80 you have to choose a non yonex string.

    You can try RSL TN680 or 660. These are very stiff, you can get the desired feeling by finding the ideal tension.
    Hope it helps.
