    Yeah, Does BG-80 come in any other colours?
    We are only 13, but are big hitters, So how long would BG-80 last us?
    (BTW I know Jaz )

    How would you compare the BG-80 to the Nanogy 95?

    personally i feel Nanogy 95 is a step up from BG65
    BG-80 is still a different breed on its own

    IMO the BG-80 is better preforming and feeling, but from an economical POV, the BG-95 is better. Another thing that I really dislike about the BG-95 is that it last so long that you never get a chance to try anything else nor do you want to cut it to get a new tension because it cost so much. Aside from that, for me it feels as if the BG-95 is too absorbant i guess. It's hard to put it into the words, but it just doesn't feel crisp enough.

    guys,

    some peoples like to strung their tension at different tension for vertical and horizontal ... may i know, which 1 should I put more tension (hori or ver) to generate more power for stroke and smash play?

    Haha, well that's a first. So you're saying that the NBG-95 is TOO durable? Also, I seem to be getting that it lacks a certain feel because of a dampening effect? So then, what're the differences between the BG-80 and the BG-85, since we're setting BG-80 as the almighty string benchmark. (Aside from durability, but how long do they last, set against each other)

    I would agree with some of the comments about the 95, i tried it out and it did nothing for me, i went to it from bg-85 and compared to that the 95 seemed very dead, went home after each game with a sore arm as well !
    Maybe thats cause the string is tough so doesnt bed down and loose a little tension like the 85, so i was playing with a slightly higher tension that i was used to ?

    I have tried the 80 as well but it didnt seem to compare to the 85 but i got that pre-strung in a new racquet and i dont think it was done that well, the tension seemed a bit spongy compared to the 85 i normally have.

    The 85 seemed crisper, shots seemed to come off quicker, though i will go back to the 80 over winter as the 85 will most likely break too quickly once it gets cold and nasty outside ! But from my normal stringer

    Absolutely agree. I think there should be some clarification on the NBG95. In terms of performance, when compared to the best of the best, BG66, BG80, BG85, it's not as good. However, given the ability to string at very high tensions while retaining durability, it's a very good string. It has very good balance.

    Which reminds me, I need to readjust my rating on the NBG95 from Excellent to Excellent-...

    Lol, I dink Dink had a slight urge for revision. I haven't tried the BG-66, but the BG-80 is a great string. I haven't tried the BG-85 either, but I don't really want to deal with restringing too much, so I might hold off on that.

    I have been palying w/ BG68Ti,BG85 and BG80 the past year or so and I find my experience to be a little different than DinkAlot's ratings on a couple of issues. I play normally w/ a string tension of 22-23 lbs, that maybe a factor .

    The differences are BG68Ti certainly has more repulsive power than BG85 and BG80 at the tensions I used, which is consistent w/ Yonex's charts.

    http://www.distrisport.be/downloads/...gsShuttles.pdf

    BG85 and BG80 are close in power and BG85 probably has a slight edge.

    In terms of string grip, I feel BG80 certainly has more grip than BG68ti. I can spin my low forehand serve well w/ BG80 (BG85 is close), but not nearly the same w/ 68ti.

    Absolutely agree. My string review would probably be very different if I played at 22-23lbs. I will update my string review to note that the review was based on ~28lbs. string tension.

    Alright question guys, since most of you all said the BG 85, though an excellent string but its durability makes up for its weakness so i was also woundering of getting either BG 80 or Ashway microPower, but question DinkAlot, during purchase options from webs ive visted, they only have Ashway Gut 66, Ashway PowerGut, Ashway microlegend, and Ashway micropoer Ti so wud be great if you guys can clear it up for me.

    And also, i am loking to adding this to my new AT-900 Technique, at 23ibs tension, kinda offensive player so ne ideas i wud love tyvm

    best is to try them out. They r both great strings so u can't go wrong if u try both of them.

    Who said I did not? I reviewed all these strings multiple times on my trusty Woven 7s. So there! ....
