LazyBuddy: thanks for the recommendation, I'll have to try out the BR68 as well.
So much testing to do.

I use MicroLegend (0.69mm gauge one, not the XL which is 0.73). I string my rackets at about 22 pounds. I have used this string on multiple rackets (slim-10, ti-5, yang yang tactic 9000, apacs armorpower 700).
I find the string to have a crisp feel with a nice sound and great power. But the strings do not last too long. The strings come coated with an oily substance in an attempt to increase lifespan. This makes the strings slide and move a lot once they become loose.

been using microlegend for almost a year now on all my rackets, its good and retains tension longer.

I tried the powergut 65 recently. I really disliked it Seemed "dead", almost like the feeling of a string that's lost it's tension.
I'm now switching back to Yonex because the Ashaway strings are not so widely available and expensive.

MicroLegendXL can be strung at very low tension and retain superb playability. It is the most powerful and accurate (in terms of deviation from the intended direction) string at low tension compared to thinner Yonex strings that I have tried. It has a soft feel and sound on the whole. But when hit right on the sweet spot hard, it's thunderous.
I am not convinced it is ideal to stick with just one string. On occasions that MicroLegendXL stops playing well for me, switching to a racket with one of the Yonex strings (BG80, BG68Ti, BG66Sharp) brings my game right up to par again. In any case, I use the MicroLegendXL as the main string because it just feels more consistent, and use the Yonex strings as backups when the Ashaway is suffering from a bad string day.

With my previous rackets (Victor Fung 2000 Ti), I always used Ashaway Micropower strings. The thickness is somewhat similar to that of Yonex BG-80's, BG-80 being a bit thinner.
They're both excellent strings, BG-80 is no match against Micropower as for holding the tension. Micropower is a bit more durable, and has a really good overall feel to it. It is also a a tad better in slice shots. The only significant difference is that with BG-80 you can produce more power along with a louder bang.

guys ... anyone ever tried the durakill from ashaway.. for me it plays crispier than the microlegend.
The power gut is also good, specially for hi tension.. don't know what went wrong with yours @ golllum.

hum i recently had my racquet strung with PowerGut 66 and well i played in a tournament with yonex AS-50's and well after a match and a half (so 3 games and a bit of the 4th one) they snapped just like that, ok so the tension was not that high only 24lbs but still like gezz they didnt even last that long...oh well i really liked the feel of the strings though but it just snapped to fast...and if its always going to be like that then its not worth it for me to use. I was wondering if anybody else who used this string has had this happen to them?
