    I have tried BG-65, BG-66 and BG85.
    BG-66 breaks easy.
    Now I am using BG-85, but will back to BG-65.

    i tried using a 68 ti string and titanium just doesnt cut it..its slippery with no feel whatsoever.

    i still use bg66 as much as possible..however sometimes due to budget constraints i will go for other brands 66 string as well(basically same as yonex bg66 from a statistical standpoint)...the idea here is repulsion.

    cheers

    Hmm.. maybe BG68Ti only Suitable for some rackets. i used it on my PowerConcept 999 and 1080 at 25lbs. doesn't seems to work. but it proved to be a powerful string on the AT500 at 24lbs. maybe its the racket. but the difference is really too much.... well. can't really judge it. having doubts about that string but my coach only string with that. i am lazy to go string myself.

    oh. probably u aren't a hard hitter i guess.. or u just learnt badminton? hmm.. anyway, that string is a nono for me. tried twice and both lasted only around 1 month. I am very budget wise and I m not working. Shuttlecocks alone have been burning my pocket.. so i guess string durability is an important factor to me. hmm. anyway, any of u have fav. string of brands other then yonex?

    Or maybe he is more accurate than you are, thus reducing the number of off-centre hits and extending the strings' life

    Well, 1 month is way too general. We need to talk about the actual playing time. I can say it last for 1+ yr, if I can play 15 min a week. Or, I can say, it last only 3 days, if I do 10+ hrs per day.

    I play about 3 times a week, for 2 hours each session. Been playing for 5 years now. I usually hit the bird dead on. I think i am a farely hard smasher, i just don't go smash every bird i see. I use drops more than smashes to be honest. So maybe that will last longer.

    btw its strung 22lbs on a mp77sp

    I'm currently using Gosen Pro66 .66mm. The reason why i love this string is that it is cheap and can retain the tension longer than other Yonex thin strings. Since i strung it at around 27lbs to 29lbs , i find it more durable and good feel for that string.

    Besides Gosen.. i also like to use bg68ti. Durable but tension doesnt not last as long as pro66.

    Bg65ti is good also for me.

    For me, it's Gosen Biogut Bioroots strings. I think there are three versions, I've seen three. I have the Bioroots which is 0.72mm thick and there are two others, Bioroots 68 and Bioroots 70, with thickness 0.68 mm and 0.70 mm respectively, I believe. The Bioroots (0.72mm) I have on my Cab 30MS right now and they are great; for a thick string, it has great repulsion as well as control. I will try the other strings sometime, I expect it to be soon, as well as the Biogut Aermet strings too.
