    Nicest BG66 *at 22lbs on MP88 and NS8000

    But BG66 at 22lbs on Mp23 sucks.

    *Changes mind* - I feel 22lbs is too high for me , while I can use that tension and fairly higher (only tested upto 26), I feel the amount of *bounce* I get off the string at 20lbs I can control Greatly for net play and drop shots, sharp cross court drop shots etc. and still get good power out of the racquet.

    (I feel I get more power at 22lbs, but my lower power shots e.g. drop shots are poorer)

    and currently using a Karakal SLTi-80 not SL-80.

    I string for others. BG80 seems to improve their power and sharpness significantly compared to whatever string they were using on whatever racket they have. I would see BG80 as an excellent force multipler for all rackets cheap or expensive if the tension is done right. I normally select a higer tension for those who have a harder smash.

    For my own ti-10's, I prefer MicroLegenXL or BG66Sharp. The worst string I found for my Ti-10's are BG68Ti. The string is so horrible that nearly everytime after I use a racket with that string on, I get an urge to cut the string.

    Black Knight 2006 with Ashaway MicroLegend at 26 lb cross and 24 lb main. Very good feed back and good power on smash. I will switch the tension to 22 lb cross and 20 lb main if playing lots of plastic shuttle. String retains the tension pretty good.

    The Tactic string is average to very good depending on the person using the string. For most, the Tactic string will have good feel, control and repulsion. For a few others, they felt the string was a bit "numb". For me it's a good string. It's relatively durable, on par with BG80 and performs near BG80 levels for power. However, BG80 has more control and is better for net play.

    It feels different than BG80, it's hard to explain but the best way I can describe it is BG80 has a tighter, more direct feel while the Tactic string has a looser feel when the shuttle comes off the string bed. Some prefer the looser feel while I prefer the tighter feel. Hope this makes sense.

    Currently and most likely for quite a long time: AT800OFF 3U with BG80 and 22 lbs (10kg). BG80 holds the tension very well, lasts for long time and produces solid power & accuracy. Also played with MP77, MP99, MP100, NS8000, AT800OFF 4U, Fukuda 900 and quite a few Victor and Wilson racquets, and even though tried some other strings always decided that BG80 was the best. Need to try a bit higher tensions though.

    a higher tension will let the string perform to it's full potential
