However, it after a few swings, the string begins to loosen and that's when the fun part begins.

    I am a strong smasher but the power I generate with the racket-string combo is fantastic. But is this a common occurrence for the Nanogy 95?
    I find with both NBG 95 and 98 that there is a break-in period, freshly strung, both will be very stiff and plays like crap! But once after the break-in period, the strings will be a lot better. Personally, I don't really like the NBG 95, it's not that repulsive, so my choice would be NBG 98 or BG 80 or 85

    Our lads went through a brief affair with Nanogy, but I stayed clear and went for BG80. I found Nanogy 95 too thick and too greasy, and it was not as "communicative" as the harder Yonex strings. A thin string will really accentuate the power of a head-heavy racket such as this, even up above 25lb.

    Unfortunately, BG80 goes VERY easily, as others have mentioned (especially if you scoop with it using an Armortec with its unprotected rim), and the coating is prone to cracking and fraying, so I'm now going to switch to Ashaway MP - if I can find it in PLAIN WHITE.

    If you can't find the Ashaway MP in plain white anywhere else, you may PM me for it.

    Cheers.

    Nice one! In the UK, it's predominantly orange or white/blue. Also (annoyingly), BG-80 tends to come only in fluorescent yellow. Why are we so neglected over here?

    I might just about be the only person left who likes 68ti on stiffer racquets, but I tried a AT900P 4U G5 with bg-68ti and it was almost perfect

    I'm also a fan of BG-68Ti! Has been using this string for very long on my apacs racket. However, I just got myself a Yonex AT900P with BG68Ti strung at 24lbs. I would say I havent been able to pack power out from this combo at this tension. Really dun understand why as I always get very nice smashing feel with the 68ti string. Perhaps I should give Nanogy98 a try next time!
