    strictly power, usually the thin strings. within yonex strings, definitely bg66 has most power. draw back is poor durability, and loses tension fast.

    BG-66 is certainly a good one. BG-80 and BG68Ti are also good choices. However, BG68Ti could be a little slippery if you are not used to it.

    Just strung my racket with Tactic 65Ti to 30/32 lbs.
    Excellent power and control. Sounds sweet too.

    I will try the same with Yonex BG-65ti next for comparison.

    Yep, I tried 3 packs of the Tactic 65Ti (0.68mm) and it's very lively and durability was decent for the performance.

    Next up for me are MMOA's 0.68mm and 0.69mm strings, Fleet Ti String 0.70mm, and a few other 0.70mm strings from True Speed.

    LOL!

    What about at relatively lower tensions of say less than 22 lbs? Is durability an issue for the thinner strings even at the lower tensions? Thanks!

    Hey, maybe you can try using the 0.66mm string at 30/32 lbs and use stencil in the center to hold the string together and then apply some lotion on the surface to moisturize the string so it will last longer and not dry out so fast or get fuzzy.

    DinkALot say: twenty-two pound tension, much too low for high repulsion string that it is; but will last longer.

    So what tension would you need for a high repulsion string like BG80? Would 24 or 25 lbs do?

    22 works great for me....

    I actually strung it at 23 or soemthing and I couldn't get enough length in my clears...now it dropped to ~22 (compared with other rackets, tone was just a high *ting* and teh other was 22) it feels terrific...

    it's all personal, but people here on the BC tend to recommend high-tensions...though in Holland I've only seen one case of somebody stringing at 29lbs...and he's ranked #150 mens singles worldwide...

    so I say, try it out and build it up slowly...
