    just received my 100m reel today. shuttle house is extremly fast in terms of delivery. it took only 6 days from jp to germany! this is great. i guess i will order all my non-guarantee items there

    btw what i like is the better control compared to nbg95 plus its extra power helps to get power where the U4 of my racket usually is unable to create power.

    NBG98 is not available in US yet. May be next year? Call SDBS to see if they can get one for you?

    tried a NGB98 (Japan) strung at 25# on a AT900T.

    compared to the BG80 strung at 25# for Cab 30MS, MP21, and Armortec 300 that I played with today, the NGB 98 on the AT900T is fresh, more alive and crisp sound. The repulsion is livelier than that of BG80. The shock absorption of the NGB98 on AT900T is better that then BG80 on the Armortex 300.

    But for the price, BG80 is a very close alternative.
    If cost is not an issue, then NGB98 is a must-try.

    I recently bought packs of BG65P, NBG95 and NBG98 from shuttle-house. The prices were all the same somehow, other than the cheaper BG65 and the expensive CBG100 at 1350yen a pack. I also bought an AT700 from the same shop, but the shopkeeper reccomended me not to string the AT700 with the NBG98 because of its thinner gauge... I cant wait till I try it on other racquets though..

    To have a better comparison between these two strings it would be more appropriate to :
    1. Use the same brand racquet for the two strings
    2. Use 27.5lbs on the NBG98 and 25lbs on BG80, because of the use of vectran on the BG80

    Thanks for the idea. Will go with those specs when the BG80 breaks.

    Just to add, you might want to try it with a 1 lbs difference. So example, you want 26.5, you string it as 26/27.

    No idea. The stringer's reason was: 'Thick frame = thicker strings'.. Another stringer in a big racquet shop in Osaka told me the same thing. I dont quite understand why though. Maybe durability is considered more important in Japan..

    I ended up stringing my racquet with the cheaper BG65Power at 24lbs, which they considered to be very high. The stringing was extremely quick and looked very neat though. (one-piece stringing, no big overlaps around the frame)

    The reason why you have to use about a 10% lower tension with BG80 or BG85 when comparing with other strings is that both these two strings have greater elasticity than other strings due to the sliver of vectran in these strings. Say you use 20 lbs on GBN 98, you will then have to use 18 lbs on BG80, so that you can have a more comparable basis to compare the two strings' performance.
