    PG66 holds some better than BG65. PG65, I would say comparable with BG65 or a tad bit better.

    it's drop about 1 lbs on 3 hours plays on mine, but after drop to certain point (about 2-4lbs depends on restringing tension and stringer technique), it's looks like the tension stay at current.
    in tropical nation as indonesia, string tends to stretch than broke, hot climate makes the string more elastic than in cold europe

    Assuming BG80 at 26.5/29.0lbs.:

    If I just drop and clear: it'll last about 1.5-2 weeks

    If I am playing all out smashing: 0-2 days

    If combination dropping/clearing/smashing (my normal average): 4-7 days

    This past year, I averaged a broken string every 6 days. So a bit more than one string a week.
    looks like yr rackets does have twice the life span compare to yr strings

    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 !
    I second the weird feeling. Just got a Woven 11 from Dink with these strings. It's such a weird feeling, but when it hits the sweet spot, the bird just flys (often out of the court unfortunately). I really hope it's not cat gut because that would make me never use these strings agian =(

    Yeah, BS-963 has a weird "hollow" feel but the shuttle just shoots off the racket. It's extremely repulsive but not very solid feeling. It's an extreme performance string. Not sure what gut it's from though.

    It's also taking a toll on my arm and shoulder. I am thinking about cutting them and putting bg80s at something like 22 pounds since the strain is getting to me. Suggestions on this topic? Restring or just bear with it and hopefully get used to it?

    Naw, highly doubt it's the string. Most likely the tension, then the racket.

    amen, I also found it a tad 'inconsistent'..some switspot hits where dead..some bounced tremendous..sometimes I would've sworn I hit it spot on, but the bounce was gone..

    Yea I had the experience today. First clear was a foot short of the back ally, 2nd clear was a clear 4 foot out of the back. Don't even want to talk about drops since I'm already naturally bad at it.

    No way it'll drop anymore. Originally, it was strung at 28-29lbs.

    Where can you buy the BS-963 strings at? I'm not completely happy with it right now, but I'm also not willing to possible ignore a really good string because of some bad experiences.
