    BG 85 is just a little bit thinner, 1 mm to be exact. BG 80 is meant for offensive player, and 85 is more towards defense.

    Both BG80 and BG85 have similar repulsion power. However, BG85 is better than BG80 in control and shock absorption. BG80 has a softer feel than BG85.
    BG80 is suitable for hard hitters who want repulsion power. BG85 are for control players who also seek high repulsion power. BG80 is slightly more durable.

    85 is not 1 mm thinner, 0.01 mm thinner mayber. If it was 1 mm thinner it would have negative thickness ;P

    BG 85 Lasts 3hrs-1week while BG80 lasts 3-4weeks
    BG85 has MAD repulsion while BG80 is a slight less

    What i think is BG80 lacks feel compared to bg85 due to its thicker diameter.
    I think the vectran thinngy works best with thinner diameter, more responsive and explosive on touch.

    cooler.... i wonder if you can devise an experiment to compare different string similar in idea to the measurements you did for rackets? that would be quite valuable for badminton fans....

    I dont think measuring some physical properties of badminton strings would help an user in choosing the desire string because

    1. string is more dynamically dependent than a 'rigid' racket so performance is very dependent on how a string is used.
    2. temperature and humidity vary greatly among places where BF's reside. What i measure within my ambient condition may not indicative how the string will perform in say, humid malaysia.
    3. there are lot more variables that is needed to describe a particular string and all these variables may overwhelm or cloud the overall conclusion of the string.
    4. string performance is very subjective (familarity) to a point that it can override any technical advantage of a different string.
    6. strings are relatively lot cheaper than rackets so trying out different string is feasible as compared having to buying many rackets to try out.
    7. string performance is also somewhat tie to tension and racket used. A 'soft string' may work well with one racket at one particular tension for a B- player but may not 'feel right' for a A- player, with different tension and different racket.


    A real life analogy is car tires. A 'V' rated tire with 65 profile tells very little how that tire will perform because its performance is tied to what car (weight/suspension) is used, the road surface, its speed. A car(engine, transmission, suspension, radio, etc), like a racket, is more predictable,relatively speaking.

    car=racket
    tire/wheel=string
    road=shuttle

    Of course, string characteristic can be measured(with sophisicated instruments) but to be useful, lots of parameters must be taken, and some of these parameters are not easily comprehended (no offense intended) by average users.

    yes, bg88ti has vectran and it is thicker than bg80 and bg85

    Question

    Ok

    BG 85 seems to be a great string but with a lack in durability.

    Will lower String (18lbs)tension increase durability?

    May its a stupid question but I've no eperienced with thin Strings.

    thanks
