    Surprisingly, I don't mishit much anymore at the top of the racket, so it cut down my string breakage by about 50%. I still break about one string every 7-9 days though. I also went a bit lower in tension. I always say play near the lower side of your ideal tension to prolong string and racket life.

    still exploring my 'ideal'..micropower at 25lbs was one heck of a ride yesterday
    (bought a reel of it..didnt feel comofrtable depleeting the shop-stock)

    thouhg I strung CF64 once, CF66 about 4 times, and CF70 about 4...
    CF64 snapped at a mishit (a lift, actually...first day back from my holiday)
    CF66 snapped once in the centre, and 3 mishits (2x cold gym, one vicious netkill)
    CF70 all broke in the middle..

    Nice to know your not popping them as quickly anymore. Reminds me of some of the people that play at ucsd that go through like 4 rackets a night.

    thank you for updating.

    maybie variant of this chart to list so it's organized best to worst in each category or a sortable list.

    i'm used to my bg 80 but it's too bouncy for me

    perhaps back to bg 65 ti for me

    +If BG80 is "too bouncy" for you, then up the tension a little.

    +Since there are lots of variables, I try not to rate "what is best", instead I just list my favorites in bold.

    Yes Sir, haven't fully tested it. I have it on my training racket and it's very good but the training racket is 140grams.

    Maybe all the string i've tried, bg-65ti have the best smash power compared with yonex string line, that's IMO, second bg-80 then bg-66

    Question Cyclone: New Badminton string in the market ???

    Hi DinkALot,

    Thank you for your Badminton String Review. It's GREAT !!!

    I am not a professional restringer, I am only doing it for our club members.

    But just this week, one of our players asked me to do a restring job for him, and he produced this brand that I have never heard of... CYCLONE.

    Have you tried it before? ...... If yes, I would like to hear/read your comments on it.

    Details are;
    Brand= Cyclone
    String Name= BS-66
    String Thickness= 0.66 mm (22 ga.)
    Manufacturer Comment= Processed with braided fiber for strong friction.

    Perhaps the manufacturer is trying to tell us...... that with the stronger friction, it could be used better for spinning the shuttlecock at netplay.

    Cheers... chris@ccc

    almost all badminton strings are braided.
    so are the rackets too, but some call them 'woven'

    I have never tried Cyclone string but the name BS-66 is the same as Trump's string, BS-66, which is also 0.66mm and Trump has a very similar comment about its string so maybe it's the same or similar string.

    yeah, all jackets have to be braided..though that's not the end

    bg65's jacket is 'braided' (like a basket)..But bg80's is as well...

    example out of tennis strings:
    http://www.tennisnets.co.nz/strings.html

    or see the different 'braiding' between bg65ti (slick) and bg80 (rough)

    http://www.bbeshop.com/image2ac/string_bg65ti_spec.jpg
    (posted link, pic is big)

    I agree the marketing part isn't the, but I guess they mean the 'braiding' is rougher...

    as for "woven" rackets..If you mean Sotx, you know what I'm gonna say

    EDIT: okay, maybe the pcis aren't as clear as I hoped...But the point that 'braiding' can be done more than one ways, like ashaways PFT for example..

    Default Ashaway String Model Number

    Thanks DAL for the nice post. However, I have some questions regarding the Ashaway string models posted in your review.

    It looks like Ashaway Micro Power has very good reviews. Is the one you have the same as this one:
    http://www.mybadmintonstore.com/shop...roducts_id=263
    The string thickness is shown as 0.66mm. Is there any other sub-models for this string?

    Also, Ashaway PowerGut 65 Neon. I cannot find any thing exactly as you described. The closest I can find is PowerGut 65 Nylon.
    http://www.mybadmintonstore.com/shop...roducts_id=260

    Is there any chance they are the same?
