    Default Strings

    Hey, i got a mp-100 a few weeks ago, and i am using BG-68ti string right now. It has alot of power. However, it's hard to control. I heard that BG-85 has great control. I prefer drops better than smashes. So should i change my string to BG-85 or should i stay with my 68??? Thanx

    As an overall string, with durability thrown in, I would go for the BG-88Ti.

    But if durability is not an issue, I would prefer the BG-85.

    As for drops, I personally feel that the BG-88Ti and BG-85 are way better than the BG-66. Which is a little too bouncy for really soft net control and touch.

    Agreed! however, BG-88 Ti doesn't take high tension very well. Mine will need replacement very soon.

    Pete, how high did you string BG88Ti? Did your string snap very fast? I have BG88Ti now @ 24lbs cross and it is doing great. Titus, go for BG85 first then move up to BG88Ti. BG85 is a very good string. Doesn't last but you will love your drops. BG88Ti has a better long-term feel to it. You can use BG88Ti for 2 months and the tension is still high and drops are very consistent throughout. BG85 tends to loosen up down the stretch. BG85 is good for the first few weeks but gets worse as tension lowers.

    I think Pete's BG88Ti is at 30lbs. Is that right?

    I have doubt on my string tension (32 lbs mentioned by the vendor cum stringer--ProAce ti-66 string) of my new racquet (Proace titanium dream -- S$145), but during the play I have noticed that the string were distorted. Previously I have used ProAce racquet with 24lbs and the string didn't move while playing. So please advice me how to test the string tension.

    Thanks and Regards,
