    Default Where to buy Yonex BG65 Reels

    Does anyone know a good place for buying BG65 reels for delivery to UK ? I am looking for a good price on 1000m. mybadmintonstore had the best price I know but they no longer have stock. I contacted them, and it doesn't appear that they will restock any time soon.

    Don't forget you would need some bulk size WD-40 to lub your 1000m bg65 http://www.instawares.com/wd-40-55-g...c10118.0.7.htm

    I am beyond the need for WD40. I find all strings can be made powerful using the magic words Tension, Tension. This is why BG65 is such a powerful string worth buying lots of.

    If you find your yellow Ti-10 a bit lacking in the power department, I'd suggest you give your thin BG66 a copious squirt of WD40.

    then why bg65?...there must be something cheaper, or thicker (more durable: cheaper)
    like ashaway rally 21....at 15 lbs a lifetime supply would be roughly 10 packs

    if I were you I'd just mail every baddyshop in the UK askign for either a 1000m roll...or 3-4 200m rolls..and see who goes lowest

    but it would be less wasteful than spraying wd40 and wipe. With a drum full, he can soak several reels of bg65 as long as necesary, like those chinese lizard tonic medicine CD6 can make back the money from selling 'pre-soaked' strings according to his recipe.

    i guess it's a treasured secret held by CD6. Best if u consult him on this matter.

    Cos BG65 has the best combination of durability, customer recognition, value for money, and abundance supply.

    I have already secured a life time supply of MLXL for my own use. The BG65 is for restringing jobs.

    ohh I see, I thought you were using it for yourself. You're right though, certainly about demand...

    No, no. WD40 is no secret at all, as I have already shared in the string mod thread. String power on the other hand, is a top, top secret. If you are willing to explore outside of the cage Yonex placed you in, perhaps you may find the secret for yourself. But then again, you may not. I stumbled upon the secret by accident. It took me a couple of times falling over it to realise what it was.
