    Default Aside BG65, what others have black string?

    I have been trying to look around for black strings which i intend to use for my Ti-10. I think it looks cool with black. So far all I can find is black BG65. My usual string, BG85, only comes in blue and white. So are there other strings that come in black? I dont really like BG65. Durable but poor playability for me IMHO. Thanks

    BG68Ti also comes in black. But black is a giveaway colour and may marginally disadvantage your game.

    BG66 and BG65TI and BG70Pro all have in black color.

    I used to like black strings a lot....now I don't like them at all because once you hit some shuttles, they are going to leave a noticeable white mark on the strings, and that's not looking good at all. After few games, my black strings have lots of white marks on them, and evnetually, now, it looks more like a white-grey color. So, why not just get white??

    I think that's a good thing, as u can examine if ur shots are right at the sweet spot or not.

    Also, you can tell by the sound. Hitting onto the frame and at the center surely would sound differently.

    ... capture my frame of mind completely...

    I am also totally in love with black strings... but am starting to pay attention to the white marks left by the shuttle on the strings... I might start experimenting with other colors... maybe buy one of those 5 set strings on ebay with multiple colors so i can try all of them... personally i like white,black, grey...

    Oh well... to my knowledge... BG65 68Ti 70Pro are definitely available in black buy you have to realize that many seller do not stock up on black strings as they do not sell as well...(this is based on my experience shopping for strings here in the US... dont know about manilla though)

    colour wont make too much difference to ur level of playing.

    IT's all in the skills, not colours.
    I got bg 65 white strings, but I like black colour. so I coloured my strings black

    Black, purple and white string is very nice on Ti-10. I use to put black bg-65ti and bg68-ti on my Ti-10 but I realised that I hate Titanium string and moved to Bg85.

    Try this, White grip+white string^^

    Exactly, especially when you are serving, the white shuttle against a black background is seen with crystal clear clarity by the receiver, who will pounce on your serve with more confidence.

    This works for each individual shot. However, the "mark" can be saved as a historical data, and good for "analyze" later on.

    u could easily paint the strings with any type of spray paint..waterproof.

    just watch out ur frame, cuz u dont want to get the paint on the frame.
