    Default What's the BEST combination of string and racquet FOR YOU

    Hi all badminton lovers,

    I just wonder what's everyone's opinion on the best combination of string and racquet without the tension and other elements. Please simply state in what combination of string and racquet that you think is BEST FOR YOU. Please indicate why you think it is the best.

    i use a ns8k, with a 21 lbs BG-80.

    i just love the feel of the ns8k, stiffness is suiting me, control is 110%.

    BG-80 because i string my own rackets and can tehrefore afford to string it more times then regular. feeling is perfect, holds tension nice...

    I am here to start

    I like the combination of Yonex BG65-Ti with all my racquets: Ti-10 x3, MP-77 x1, NS8000 x1 and Cab30ms x2. Because I like the feel of impact althoug it feels stiff compared to BG65 and I seem to be able to produce harder smashes with BG65-Ti. The other reason is that it last me for a good period of time usually 3 month or so and it is realtively cheap in Taiwan I can get it for about $4 US.

    However my opinion is limited I have only tried BG-65 and BG-65-Ti. I am looking forward to read your opinion so I will try the strings you recommended.

    NS8000. BG80.

    NS8000 gives a nice amount of control.
    BG85 is nice - tension stays constant, good feel - but dies off faster than fruit flies (which is probably why the tension is constant!) BG80 gets a similar feel with much improved durability.

    Agree, BG-80 is a great string.

    As far as tension is concerned, I think strings only really start to show their differences as the tensions increase... too low (22 or less?) and the softness of the tension seems to affect the play of the strings more IMHO

    MP100: your favorite racket should be the MP100.
