    yeah, it was br68, indeed!

    Sigh.. I am hesitant to return them to Japan, if I am not 100% sure its a defect (maybe they are the best 30 min. strings ever ).. I'll try another pack later and see if it seems to be the same problem.. But I just recieved The RX100,200 goosen strings... too little time, to much fun badminton-gear to play with

    haha, 30 min. strings, not too useful in the long run. So you said smashes were pretty good with those strings. How'd power compare for you personally with these strings compared to say.... BG-80?

    Ah, great way to put it, so I'm guessing this will be a more powefull string thatn BG80 if it lasted?

    Great, next time i go to get my racket restrung, I'll try out this string. but hopefully, the "ummmfh" of the string will last longer than 30 mins.

    it seems that this string isn't terribly durable.

    my first ones broke in about a month with about 24 lbs tension.

    strangly, mine broke on the sides (and always have). i think i pick up the birdie with the racquet too much.

    Damn, 1 hr stringing and last only 30 min. What do you do between points? Play it as a guitar?

    in my opinion BG 80 is only long lasting string with good repulsion. For me it seems to last longer then BG 65 or 65 ti which i broke in 3 months of 2-3 +(more during school season) hrs per week.

    80 is currently going into it's 4th month and just started to tear up not counting chunks missing from the string from the miss hits.


    now NBG 95 which i never strung on my racquet but tried on my friends' was quite nice with more power but didn't see it break yet

    TwoBeer: this should not happen. I'm thinking bad batch or fake or just a freak of nature.

    What I have found, NBG95 characteristics:

    +Powerful
    +Good to very good durability

    -Has a hollow feel, numb feel
    -Doesn't grip the shuttle too well
    -Tension holding is so-so, need to pre-stretch the string
    -Pricey and availability

Is this common with the NBG95?? Also it seem to barely keep it togeteher, the outer layer just breaking all over the stringbed..

    I posted a picture of part of the stringbed to illustrate..

    Is this fluke? Could it be a bad batch?

    The above comments are spot on. It felt weird playing with this string.

    Agree with your statement, Sir Dink.

    NBG-95 is definitely good in durability but the feel is some how "quite weird".
    Not natural at all.

    I recently collect my so called "defect" 9000X after I have sent it to claim a new one but failed. I strung it with NBG-95, 26lbs since last year November and until today the string still hold the tension well.

    It was bought from a very reputable japaneese Yonex dealer, so I cannot beleive it would be a fake. It fellt hollow and numb after 30 minutes.. but the first minutes of play it felt very responsive and controllable..

    Maybe its my super-hard slices are wearing it down
