    bg-80 quite good for holding tension, better is bg-65 ti, that's match with attacking style of play

    Has anyone else had BG80 start "cracking" on them after about 2-3 sessions of use? I had my NS9k strung with yellow BG80 at 23 lbs, and the string has started to crack near the grommets at the top of the frame. I'm not a super-hard hitter, and I don't usually scoop up the shuttles at the top of the frame, more to the side.

    I phoned the guy who strung my racket, and he said BG80 tends to do this after a little while, but 2-3 sessions is hardly enough time for this to start happening. A better description of the string cracking is like how the top layer sort of breaks apart and reveals a thinner looking string on the inside.

    nope... maybe it's because u misshit so often, btw do u string with bg-80 just this once? if yes, then it must be u misshit alot or the stringer do apoor job of stringing.

    I believe you are referring to the outer jacket of the string. It looks like the string jacket has peeled off. If it is outside the frame, then it is probably caused by scooping up the shuttle from rough surfaces. If inside the frame, then it could be caused by the clamp, especially the Yonex flying clamp.

    Taneepak,

    I've had that issue too when I used BG-80 until I finally gave up on this string and went with Gosen Roots B505 (which is years ago) when it did that too much. Except the cracking, or more pre-mature breaking was happening about pretty much around the majority of the sweetspot area and outwards. I never scope the racket using the had, I pick them up.

    Yes, I am in the process of updating and adding new strings to the review. I have tried Pro 66 and Pro 70, trying to get my hands on BG-65 Power, BG-88Ti and have BG-65Ti. Stay tuned.

    It's the first time I've had my racket strung with BG80, but I don't think I could've possibly mishit enough to crack the outer layer that much.

    And yeah taneepak, that's exactly what I'm talking about. I'm a bit worried that it will break on me soon, as <10 sessions is not what I had in mind for a badminton string. I don't think it was caused by scooping up the shuttle though, as I only use the side of my racket (the head is too inconvienent for me)

    Don't worry until the string actually breaks.

    DinkAlot, have you tried the SOTX CF66 string? How does that compare to the SOTX BS-963?? I'm about to buy some sotx rackets off jerby.. I want the bs-963, but it doesnt have a good color selection.. lol. So how is the CF66?

    I have tried it once. I believe it's 0.68mm. It's a good string but BS-963 is better.

    This past week I had a chance to compare BS-963 to BG80, BG85 and MP. Though BS-963 is very responsive and repulsive, BG80, BG80 and MP are a more solid feeling string. Relatively speaking, BS-963 feels "hollow".

    With that said, performance among these strings is comparable. But I prefer BG80, BG85 and MP because of the solid feel.

    If performance is important to you, I would not worry about color selection and go with white, transparent, gray, a lighter color string. They play better in general and are more durable.
