    Yep. Still higher tension usually means less room for error, so I've tried to develop my basic skills first. And a friend of mine who is playing on the highest level in Finland uses BG80 with 20 - 21 lbs .

    maybe he just doesn't want to take a chance of breaking the head of a racket by stringing too tight

    So here is the tally of the string votes

    BG65Ti- 5 votes
    BG65- 2 votes
    BG65power- 1 votes
    BG66- 3 votes
    BG68Ti- 2 votes
    BG70pro- 3 votes
    BG75Ti- 1 vote
    BG80- 16 votes
    BG85- 4 votes
    CBG100- 1 vote
    Sotx 1040Ti- 2 votes
    GS-88 1 vote

    Looks like BG80 is a clear winner!

    ATM I'm using a Carlton Airblade Superlite with BG85 @ 26lbs. That said, I would say my faavourite string is either BG80 or BG85. I don't feel much difference in playability but I would say the BG85 just shades the BG80 purely because the hitting sound is much nicer(stupid reason, I know lol )

    i would have to go with bg-80 over bg-85 because it's more durable.

    That's what I did. Performance loss is minimal to me, although 85 is more crisp and accurate. And probably a bit more powerful.

    bg-80 and bg-85 strings are about the same price. but bg-80 lasts me 1 month while bg-85 only last me 2 weeks. unless you string your own rackets the re-stringing costs are too much.

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.
    Thanks for that, great review. I might get some now because its quite cheap compared to Yonex strings

    i thought you had some free with one of your orders?

    i doubt those strings can be that different from yonex, they are basically just copies

    More room for error is good. I have reduced tension of BG80 and MicroLegendXL from 16.5Lb to 13Lb on Ti-10. Very nice indeed.
