    Default Yonex Bg's Strings

    I was wondering what kind of strings i should get for my Ti-Swing Power SS. I am considering the following Yonex strings Bg- 70, bg 68 TI, or the BG-85. I would them strung at around 21-23lbs not sure yet. Currently i have my racket strung with BG 65TI at 20 lbs but its pretty much broken in. i had it on since X-mas of 2003 when i got it. Let me tell you a little about how i play. I play Men's doubles. I play Defence a lot and mkaing the right shots for my partner to smash at them. I have a bad smash cuz it goes liek a fast drive but i do have control. So Can someone please tell me their ideas about what strings i should get and at what tensions they recromend? Thanks a lot

    If you want control and don't mind paying for expensive strings, go with the BG85.

    BG85 is known for its control and all around play. With my own expereince, 22 lb of BG85 should be able to last me for about a month (60 hrs), compare to BG65ti (23-24lb) and last for about 2 months (120 hrs). My strokes are not that powerful, though.

    Durability and price are the major drawbacks for BG85.

    Question

    mmm.

    Seriously, I'd really like to know how hard you guys hit. My BG66 strung on all my racquets at 25 lbs tension even on my carb 8600 light with its rating only for 18 pounds does not snap! and lasts until my next restringing when I 'feel' like it.....

    It depends on what your stringers callibration is.

    I use 30lbs on my machine here in uk, but when I went to China I asked for 26lbs, and it was much harder than I was used to, even though it was asummed to be 4lbs less.

    If that's the case, it's a bonus for u. Good performance + good durability = good deal.

    Thanks for all the help guys! WEll i was reading the pasted fourms and i found many on the BG 85. I see that it is a defencive type of strings? And now i am concludign to get the BG 85 or BG 70. But i heard taht BG 85 do not last that long and is pricey. But i thought about it since i do not have a strong smash would it last longer? Everyone who had the BG 85 stings they say they lost in hours! But they also mentioned they are Hard Smashers. So can somoene tell me if its a good idea to get the BG 85 strung at 22lbs on an TI swingpower SS for a defencive type of player. Thanks again!

    I use BG85 on my Cab30ms @ 22lb. It lasts me about 1 month, but I play 15+ hrs a week. I am not a hard smasher, but not too weak, either (hopefully ).

    I just want to know how is BG-65 compare to other high repulsion strings(BG-85, BG-68Ti...etc)?

    I have been using BG-85 for the past. It usually breaks in every 2 months when I play 15hrs/week. BG-85 feels very power in high tension. But I lose power when the tension goes low.

    How is BG-65? I know it is very durable. But on the site, the repulsion is sooo low. Which means I need a lot of power to hit it far and fast? What if I string it @ 23lbs???

    I just strung one of my racquets with BG-65Ti recently @ 23lbs. And it feels very powerful(little bit powerful than BG-85), but lack of control. Have any of you people used both BG-65 and BG-65Ti or BG-85? Does BG-65 really that bad on Repulsion???

    Thank you!

    James,

    Do you remember the type of stringing machine used to string your racquet in China? Is a hand crack and with side supports? type of head and throat mount? Stringing method: main tension vs cross tension? What string was used?
