    I had just strung my Nanospeed 8000 and MP-99 with SOTX 65TI at 26LBS x 26LBS today.

    Well... from experience, SOTX strings seem to be more durable.

    Thanks.

    Is the numbering for SOTX strings equivalent to that of Yonex strings?

    Well... 65TI refers to 0.65mm strings...

    No.

    Yonex BG-65 for example is a 0.68mm string, wheras the SOTX 1040-Ti65 is 0.65mm.

    Personally, I feel that the Yonex BG-65 is a bit more durable than SOTX 1040-Ti65... The 1040-Ti65 feels a lot better though, especially at high tensions. I used the 1040-Ti 65 because it feels better than BG-65, but can be found for roughly the same price. It offers the performance of higher priced Yonex strings such as the BG-80 and BG-85, and they're at least as durable-- cheaper cost though!

    The feel of SOTX 1040-Ti65 is definetly very good at higher tensions. But the power seems to be lacking. At lower tensions, the power is very good, but the feel is lacking. I think it's a very tempermental string... changing the tension a few pounds has a huge effect on how it plays, much more so than the yonex strings I've used. Its also the most slippery. I have only used it on two occasions however, so I may still change my mind when I use it a few more times.

    Yonex BG65 is 0.70mm, I believe.
