    Same here. I got mine on a F9Ltd, and my God - smashing and drives are just..... heavenly. Even better than 66UM or even 68TI.

    What's the difference between Plastic Packet Made in Japan NBG98 vs Paper Packet Made in Japan NBG98?

    I have been exclusively playing with the plastic packet variety and the price of the Paper Packet one is way higher and I don't see a point, anyone care to explain?

    JP coded string (paper packaging) vs SP/EX/CN coded (plastic packaging) that's all ._. as for difference in the string on the court some swear that JPs are more durable at higher tensions and play better others don't..Best is to try and see what works for you.

    @bawsje 23lbs. of course it's a given that you hit at the sweet spot using the correct hitting technique.

    Just strung an NBG98 for S$28, am not too sure if I got the JP or SP version. Can anyone advise on the pricing? Thanks.

    I just went back and try the NBG98 again. while feel and crispness is not as good as Gosen/Ashaway, the repulsion is still one of the best.

    In my opinion fresh strung NBG98 needs some play-in time (~one intensive Match) to get its crispness. Freshly strung (at 28 lbs) it is a beast of a string hard to control the shuttle. But the longer it lasts the better the control, feel and crispness gets.

    I can't play with this string... although it has some of the best repulsion around, it is so slippery that my shots have an accuracy rate of +/- 30 degrees...

    And by the time the string starts to notch at the intersections, repulsion goes down significantly.

    slippery?

    the nbg98 has a sticky rubbery texture. it is quite noticeable during stringing.

    Rubbery?

    It feels like a layer of Teflon coating. Probably the so called nano coating.

    Don't most people think it's more slippery than a fish? Maybe I'm totally spoiled by the grip from vs850 and zm62.

    Agreed. quite slippery indeed. I find it works best when strung at slightly higher tension ~27 lbs.

    I find control from the string trying to "bite" into the shuttle..

    When strung at lower tension, it feels squishy and spongy like my baby's nappies. lol
