    Anyways my experience with BG80 is great. I love the feel, repulsion, and control I get with it. Tension loss, if any, can't be felt since it's hard feel usually covers it up, I assume. ZM62 is better, but way worse durability. I had to stop using it since it's unreliable during tournaments.
    You do know I have two z slashes strung with bg 80 right... The one that frays faster is one that was at 24 lbs LOL so

    Anyway, I currently have Bg80P and Bg66UM, both on BS11, and strung same day, both at 24lbs. Alternate playing both so the wear and tension loss on both should be pretty even. Its very obvious that the UM loses tension a lot faster than the 80P under similar usage.

    I have just strung BG80 on my AT700LTD and tried out for 1week.
    Everything good for me, Very controlable and gives a lot of power on my smash.
    But Back court clear i need to hit harder to reach back court.

    Probably my wrist not strong enough

    Try lowering the tension, I usually find that lower tensions with BG80 still keep the feel, while some other strings don't, and gives you a bit more power if you don't hit hard enough.

    I am revisiting BG80 (previously used NG98).

    Nice feel to the string at 28lbs with prestretch. Still getting used to the feel on some mid court shots.

    Makes a nice smash sound - some guys asked me what strings were in the racquet.

    Really, you fellas should try zm62 if you like a nice crisp sound.

    I wouldn't recommend anything over 24lbs if you'll be hitting plastics with it. Since it's so thin, it feels like it's 2-3lbs higher than say BG66 or something else. But it's crazy fragile, hit hard enough on one mishit and it's gone.

    I tried it at 23 lbs once :0 broke in two hours ! Bad idea to get zm 62 when I was so inconsistent...

    24 lbs for feathers. And for plastics, ZM65 @ 24-25 lbs.

    That's not my sole criteria for using a particular string

    Cheung, have you tried ZM62?

    It's an amazing string.

    I'm surprised more people in Asia haven't tried it, because it's more durable there than in North America due to the climate.
