    I can't say much because Ashaway didn't say anything much. They just sent me some samples to test and I gave a few to some of the experts here on BC...I didn't send you any because you're so far away...

    If you want some, just mail me.

    I will say this, my findings/guesstimates:

    NGX81: ~0.69mm, plays as good if not better than BG80 and is more durable, on par with BG65. Holds tension as good if not better than BG-70Pro!

    NGX82: ~0.73mm, plays on par with BG80 and is more durable than any string I've tried this side of "PE String". Holds tension better than any string I've tried.

    NGX is not soft, it's a stiffer string, not quite as stiff as BG80 but close.

    15, 30, 60 seconds. Just until you get the "slack" out of the string.

    i normally prestretch it for 15 seconds. works for me anyway. i don't pull too hard, just enough for it to stretch itself out.

    I'm almost wishing Dan didn't send me that pack of NGX82. I'm in LOVE. They're supposed to come out next year. I don't even know how I'll last until then. I can't wait to get my hands on the .69 version. I can only imagine how much more power I'll get from losing 0.04 mm. Very impressed with the NGX82 none the less. Especially for guys who need more durabilty without the expense of performance.
