    Default Pacific Polyester String

    I read BlueJeff's review of the 0.65 mm Pacific polyester string. It is less durable than BG-66!!! Has anyone tried the thicker version in 0.68 mm? It is called the PolyPower 68. The string is German made and pre stretched .

    Good find. I'm interested in this string as well. Hopefully BJ can chime in. Also where to buy?

    Well, polyester is a very hard material for string. I will get a few packs and try out and report to BF'ers.

    Will see. BlueJeff said the 0.65 mm version lasted him over several hours Vs. 3 weeks with the BG-66!!! Hopefully, the 0.68 mm will make a huge difference in durability. Repulsion should be good with polyester strings.

    You think there is any correlation between "super nylon" and "polyester" strings? The SOTX BS-963 is 0.68mm "super nylon", has very good feel, great repulsion and so far, very durable.

    Nylon and polyester are totally different material.

    I meant is there any correlation, as in any resemblance at all, any shared properties? Thanks.

    Absolutely None!!! Polyester and nylon are chemcially different.

    I guess you are talking about the way this string actually performs. We will see . . .

    Just a thought, can I use my old polyester and combined with my wife's nylon to make a super string? Any one want to go in this business with me?
