    It plays the same of course, but somehow psychologically it don't feel the same. I feel as if my racquet is responding somewhat differently. I do understand it could have something to do with the re-tightening of tension (new), but somewhat it feels somewhat different,

    There you have it, another example in string-colour-affecting-play situation. Dunno if this' a valid one.
    You are not the only one. This guy from my club wanted me to string his Cab20L with BG65Ti. At that time, I only have red ones left (I hate this color, but the dealer was out of stock at that time). I asked if that's ok, and the answer was, "white only". To make him satisfied, I had to contact all my stringer buddies to exchange for a white one.

    So, guess I am not the only one hate RED now.

    There was a time when I try to get strings that match the color of my rackets. Now am tired of it. I just get white strings. This color is neutral and would fit any of my rackets. Besides I get better discounts purchasing them by lot

    Blue. It fits my blue/silver Muscle Power 88 and my blue ashaway grip just nice. It looks so cool to me!(I love anything that is blue, you see.)

    In this case, you should try:

    Blue String & Blue Grip on the Cab20Power (or 22). It's totally blue!!

    Fluorescent yellow. I think it looks intimidating.

    Call me weird, and only one other person has listed this color, but I think it looks cool on most racquet paint schemes. I have seen five different rscquets with these bright strings, and they all looked great (to me). One time I decided to try something different so I put bright orange on my racquet. It actually matched some of the lettering on the racquet better than yellow, but it just didn't look as good. I almost wanted the string to break so I could get a bright yellow one back on.

    Nevertheless, a lot of people have said that black looks menacing as well. I've never seen a racquet strung in black. Maybe I'll try that sometime.

    Also, I hate having a logo on my strings. However, maybe I could get a smiley on there just for a laugh. Especially on yellow strings, I't would be perfect. Maybe it would help my game becuase my opponents wouldn't take me seriously. Or I could go for the intimidating, menacing smiley like I posted in the top paragraph. Unfortunately, I think my bark is worse than my bite.

    lavender really isn't half bad....and you can probably tell that it's BG85
    Same with green being once restricted to BG66, but now also Gosen have it.

    Seriously, try lavender...fair enough i've only seen it with a black and white racquet, and a Ti-7 light, but it looked pretty good on both anyways

    When i went to my local stringer some couple months ago, he tells me that a black BG-65 is more durable than the white one. I decided to go with black because ive been using white most of the time. I don't think what he is telling me is true.... maybe no one wants the black BG-65 and he wants to get rid of it..

    For my experiences, I think Black strings break faster than white.

    Black strings

    Just string my MP-77 with silver strings and black yonex grip.

    but before it was strung with black strings, it came with the racket thou. It broke the first day i used it. broke at the top of the frame..=P

    so i think bluejeff is right about black strings being less durable.

    Had blue BG68 Ti on a Ti 10. Didn't look good, but he had no white for Ti 10.

    Blue BG65 looked good on MP77..

    But white seems to be best for my rackets.

    oops...what a misleading text. =)
    meant to say silver colored strings...although the shopkeeper says it is silver, and it did looked silver in the packaging...after the stringing job, it looked white.

    Lavender string+white overgrip on Ti-10 looks very good even tough it looks a bit gurlie.

    At first I had black string+black grip combo but couldn't anymore because I switched to Bg-85.
