Wow, u used 29/32lbs? As for me, 28 lbs seems too stiff already. I think u have to use bull strength to whack the birdie right out man. For beginner or lower intermediate players, it will be using a wooden plank to whack the shuttles man. I still prefer the range of 25 to 27 lbs only. Let it drops about 1 lb after a week of play.

Taneepak has amazing strength. He can clear the bird 6' out of the court .

I don't use BG66 anymore. I use my own privately acquired titanium68 string now-better than BG66 but a bit less soft. I now use 27.3/30lbs with the OWN ti68 which is my ideal tension. I tried the OWN ti68 at 29/32lbs once but it was less optimal than 27.3/30lbs.

Also, why the 3lbs difference? Do you feel 2lbs. is not enough to offset the main string tension?

Its been a long time!
Now that I look back I can't believe I was using 18 lbs, lol . These days I use Armortec 900 P 4U G5 with Nanogy 98 @ 27 lbs. I like the Nanogy 98, it seems to last longer than BG 66.Clearing is not a problem at all from back line to the other end, these days my concern is not to put the bird outside when clearing , I can't believe with some video training (www.ibbs.tv)/private lessons/group training how much I impoved.

wow, thread from the dead! This string can be stretched to around 52lbs during my test, but it's different once it's on the racquet. I usually string the bg66 to 32x35.2lbs and it's not bad, durabilty is still somewhat of an issue, but it definatly lasts longer than a day. It sucks that MBS upped the price such that bg66 is the same price as all the other strings making it not a very good choice XD

When I was in Bali, my stringer put me on 22, but ater moved to Jakarta (where most professional players live), I got a clue that 29 is considered "normal" for club players here. So, I went to 29, and it's surprised me that I could play on that tension, and I generate more power than when I was in Bali. No I understand why Taufik or Gade go with 34-33. Do not believe in Yonex's manual, go testing! My racquet is MP99 and BG66.
