    Question Bg95

    Can anyone tell me if this string is still made?

    I thought I'd give it a try after reading the 4 reviews in the reviews section and am sick of paying for natural gut, BG95 is supposed to be the nearest replacement.

    It (along with any other good string) does not retail in the UK

    it had a short market life, was sold only in japan.
    it can be considered as 'collectable'

    I think cybernatural 100 still the closest to natural gut.
    why buy 95's when u can get the 100's

    Try BG88Ti - Feels like natural gut and lasts a lot longer. I bought mine from a supplier on Ebay at 11.50. Expensive but well worth it.

    There is a shop in Hong Kong still selling BG-95, the price (string only) is HK$200.

    true, what i meant is CBN 100 is orderable item while BG95 is available only from selected retailers who happen to have some not sold before.
