CF64 is the same string as cf66, but thinner and bouncier. breaks fast though...
will see how CF70 is tonight...coudl do a mini-review..
mind if I post that here Dan? I don't think it deserves it's own thread...

sorry, can't edit my last post..
I just had to add: I find CF66 on par with bg80. However, the grippign texture is a bit less, and it drops tension faster...But I can't be bothered with it ..so "On-par" should be "On-par for me"
sorry, just thought I'd highlight the deviating points

Is there a way to check the tension of your racquet after it's been strung. I want to get my racquet restrung and to determine the tension I want to set it at I want to know how much tension I've lost on the strings(bg-85) currently strung on my racquet.

okay here it goes: the 'great' sotx string string-review
I recently got to try out most of the Sotx strings, and I must say I’m very satisfied! The tested strings where Ti-65, BR68, BS-963, CF64, CF66 and CF70.
I’m personally not good at rating strings in terms of “power” or “control”, I’ll let Dan handle that :P, I’ll do my very best to describe how the strings feel/plays etc on 22x24.
Ti 65 is 0.65mm thin…very thin! And to be honest it plays very good, the “slipperiness” doesn’t bother me at all. Slices where still good…
Compared to BG66 the performance overall is quite the same, although ti65 feels ‘stiffer’, the string bed seems harder at the same tension.
also, compared to BG66 there’s slightly more ‘touch’, more feel…but that ‘s highly subjective..
Durability is about the same as BG66
BS stands for Badminton-String, not Bull-Sh well, you know…
It’s 0.68 thin and is according to the catalogue made with catgut in the string core, although the package says it’s nylon and silk…
Whatever it is, it plays great! The performance is excellent, on-par with BG66 (but durability is better) it doesn’t really break fast, but it loses tension pretty fast…
The feeling when you hit is weird though, unlike any other string I’ve tried. The string feels “soft” even at the same tension, not as crisp, though the bounce is magnificent. But if you like the feeling this strings is really 10/10 !
BR68 is also 0.68mm thin (Sotx makes BS963, BR68 and CF66 in 0.68mm…) and is made out of Nylon.
BR68 feels very slick, not just slipper, really slick. No texture what so ever! The string feels just as stiff as CF66 (roughly). Though I prefer the feel of CF66
CF64 is 0.65 mm thin according to the package, though the catalogue says 0.66mm (typing error?) and is made out of PU-fibres.
Well, to be expected, CF64 plays a little better than CF66. It’s more responsive and has more ‘control’. Though it doesn’t feel as stiff and ‘cracking’ as CF66. Durability isn’t that good, though adequate for a 0.65/0.66mm thin string..
CF66 is 0.68mm thin and also made out of PU-fibres. Performance is good, basically everything I expect from a 0.68mm. The feel is stiffer than BS963, on par with bg80…Quite actually, I’m in love with this string, the feeling is good (solid, stiff) and durability is good, on par with bg80…my favorite
CF70 is 0.70mm, and also made out of PU-fibres. It’s 0.70mm thick, like BG65…though the string is much stiffer. Performance is slightly less than CF66 (logically) but plays surprisingly alike, the feel is almost on par, but there’s less bounce to it…durability is yet to be tested.

Thanks for the info Jerry, I need to try CF66 and CF70.

and that stress and pull down the upper part of the string so causes the string crack at the top 2 gorment facing the outside.. as BG80 is a thin string to begin with and i'm currently @ 25lb.
not sure if u'r under the exact same situation as i am, but i can reproduce this problem consistantly with BG80 under my current setup within 3-4 sessions after a fresh string job.
So upon the last snap, i switch to the NBG95 jsut to see if it is the string thickness thats the major contributing factor.. i'm @ my 3rd session with this string and so far i don't see the crack yet

The string cracking is not a big deal for me. Most of the time, the string breaks elsewhere (for me).

that is if your racket live to see that happen

Is the effect the result of P4K method or the string itself?

in regards to what people have been saying about the jacket or coating of the BG80 breaking apart, my friend has a racquet that i just noticed was doing this.
on the top one or two grommets, one of the mains, the coating has been cut completely through revealing the microfillaments. the jacket is now proceeding to slide away from the frame and in towards the sweetspot. about a centimeter of microfillaments is now exposed, and the jacket is beginning to wrinkle up and bunch up at the intersections with the crosses. its kinda cool.
