Nanogy 98 Review
Duration Tested : 4 hours of Game , Racket Armortec 900 Technique Strung at 30lbs self strung with a Yonex Electronic Machine.
Hitting sound is definately nice, i would say the sound is more neat and sharp than Bg66. When come to smash, i find it a little Hard as in you are hitting a shuttle with a Ping pong bat. Probably its because it was strung at 30lbs. But after 1hr of play the strings started to loosen a little. What i mean is that the strings relaxes and found its place in the racket. Repulsion Power is there, well my smash is not that hard but people start to look at my when i smash and do the baseline drives. As if i'm hitting like a pro which i'm not. I like the feel and control of this string. One bad thing is that the strings generate some vibration which at times makes my arms and shoulder uncomfortable.
Initially i thought that this string would snap at 30lbs since its thickness is .66mm. Usually when i use BG66 at 30lbs. It would snap maybe less than 5hrs of play. To test the durability of this string, i ask a PRO friend of mine to Smash as hard as he can. Well this string can withstand 35 smashes before it snap eventually. Pardon me that is after 4 hrs of Ants using it before the Pro use it.
So personally for me the durability issue is there, what do you expect from at .66mm Nano Carbon coated string. But it is much better than a normal BG66 which it would snap at 30lbs after 15 Smashes. So I would say that this Nanogy 98 is more durable and gives you a better control and Repulsion Power than the normal BG66.
Most of you must be saying that i'm wasting money to test the strings and do this review. Hhehe well the effort in stringing is wasted but the Strings is Free! hehehe

As usual, a nice, detailed review Ants, thanks.
Looks like Yonex has another winner on their hands.
I'm eager to try it out.

Maybe Dink should start rating the string by the number of smashes it can survive.
Yonex BG-66=10 smashes
Yonex BG-95=40 smashes
Ashway MP=50 smashes

Does anyone already know if it will be available on a reel as wel? It's most likely that it will only be sold in loose packages, but I'm more into reels.

Another downside is the price. It would be wise to use the Nanogy 95 instead of 98.

I have no idea when it will reach the other side of the earth. Maybe you can check with you local supplier.
