It's a little softer, more powerful. I initially thought the string was quite rough, but when strung up you don't really notice, where as BG80 is pretty rough if you put your hand on the racquet bed.

Right now, my mp40 is strung with Ashaway Micropower XL at 24lbs, where as it used to be strung with bg65power @ 21lbs or 20lbs. I have my old carbonex8 strung with bg65 at 23lbs too, but I really prefer the Ashaway over the Yonex strings that I've tried so far, because I get superior control and power with the ashaway, but that might just be because of the higher tension. :S
My biceps and deltoids gets all sore after playing with it for 5 hours. >_<

statistically speaking, yonex strings have a wider variety range of strings compared to ashaway, but ashaway has more "bang for buck" in its primary strings. Especially micropower and PG series

disregarding durability, which is the best string all around?

NBG 98 is the best, imho. Great repulsion, great sound, great control, medium durability.

- Ashaway Micropower (0.66mm gauge)
- Yonex BG 80
- Yonex BG 66
Just my personal preference, so please don't read too much into, "...which is better?" issues...

seems like an almost perfect string from Dinker's preliminary tests.

i have been wanting to try ashaway micro power but i have a few questions.
1. people recommend pulling the string before stringin the racket to reduce the slack after stringing. would it be the same to simply string the tension higher. for example i am currently using BG66 at 23lb. if i string the micropower at 25lb will it eventually go down to around 23lb?
2. i have found that in malaysia the micropower is 0.66 while at the website it is 0.70. it is stated that the 0.66 is an asian version here in the threads. question is, why not mention the 0.66 version in the website?
3. i found a place selling the ashaway micropower 0.66 at RM21.00. is the price ok? and what other colors are available because i only found the red ones.
i wanted to try BG80 too but maybe when i buy a new racket because BG80 is so expensive.

iro question 2, the website is based in usa and not an asian website.
iro question 3, i have used rose (pink/white) and blue. if i am not wrong, i have seen green colored strings as well.
imho the ashaway mp0.66 is more thick and feel more stiff than bg66, and similar to bg80.

Micro Power in Malaysia is 0.66mm in diameter. So is Power Gut 66 Neon. I keep stocks of 50 to 200 of each, including Micro Legend, as I now use exclusively these 3 Ashaway strings. My take for performance, based on a few hundred string jobs and tests for clients, is that ML is the best, with Power Gut 66 Neon close behind, and Micro Power a bit behind. I charge HK$85 for ML and PG66 for each string job, HK$70 for Micro Power. Based on customer demand Micro Power doesn't seem to be preferred over the other two, even at the lower price, mainly due to its lack of feel-a bit hard and stiff although it is as powerful.
If interested I can sell you a few Micro Power 66 for Ringgit 15 plus mailing costs. If you are interested in buying 40 packs I will sell the lot for Ringgit 12/each pack.
