    Thanks Quasi!
    You're welcome. And if you decide it's not up to your standard, you can sell the remaining reel to me. As long as it's white.

    I got white string as well... Yes, I would also agree I like it ALMOST as much as BG85. I really like it over the BG65 though. The only thing I don't like is, when stringing, the softness makes it a bit hard to string through some holes. It plays very very nice. I think it's softer than BG85.

    Pete, you are crazy, are you on "LSD"?

    The highest tension I ever strung was 31lbs. x 33lbs. with BG-65 on a NS8000. I didn't want to do it but the guy insisted. I told him I would not be liable if the racket broke/cracked/chipped. He said no problem as he watched me calibrate my stringing machine.

    I really thought the string would snap or the crack would crack but neither happened. That's one crazy d00d; and you are crazier.

    How's this, I'll go 29 lbs. x 30 lbs. just for you.

    I think he is on Peter-Gade-"LSD" since the tension is closer to what Gade uses.

    Well, it is kinda scary to string at high tension, especially for those fine strings (d<.68mm).

    IIRC, the Hi-Qua string is 0.70mm.

    Just joking. The highest I have gone is 30 lbs X 33 lbs from a Laserfibre.

    Yeah, sure 29 lbs X 30 lbs is fine by me .

    If you owned a LF and had decent clamps that could support the tension, you'd try it too... Most stringers wouldn't touch 26+, but even at 27 - 29 I really noticed no difference... I was careful to lower the weight slowly but the mounting system really is rock solid.

    What's an LF?

    I notice a difference between 26lbs. and 29lbs. I currently stick with 29lbs. but will try 27lbs. and see if there's any difference.

    Sorry, I have no clue what LaserFibre is, a racket? String?

    Also, the Hi-Qua Fly Clamps can hold 29lbs. no problem.

    It's the stringing machine. Milkfish has the MS 200 ECO and I have MS 200 TT.
