    Thanks Mark,

    I doubt Cai and Fu use it now since they play with Kason. Having said that, they still sport 'gold' coloured strings. Christina Pedersen used to play with a 'gold' coloured string when she was still using her Nanospeed 9900; although I highly suspect she was using the NBG 98.

    Arrived in today's mail from Stringers' World. I plan to have my Carlton Vapour Trail strung with them.

    maybe because i have no interest in nanogy strings but this bit about bg65 is important to me since i am currently using it at 2lbs higher than normal for the more control, yet it's still sorta all over the place for me, maybe i should bump up the tension another lb or so? been using bg65 for about 2 months seriously with dedication and it's been great so far. will restring again after this weekend going to 27x28lbs.

    I think I read somewhere that Cai and Fu actually did use Yonex strings whilst sponsored by Kason and so may still be using Yonex strings today.

    I think they're allowed to use any strings they way so long as the stencil logo is their sponsor's logo.

    I would tend to agree - that "caramel" colour I haven't seen on anything other than the Nanogies. It'd have to be a really good camera to see a YONEX string name.

    To take the principle further, I think Robert Blair is sponsored by APACS, but is allowed to use an Arcsaber 10 because it looks enough like an Edgesaber 10 to get away with it.

    Does this string lose tension easy and fast?

    I have a VT70 with NG95. It was strung @ 24 lbs and lasted almost 3 months. The string is not broken, but its turned into a trampoline and hence it needs replacing.
