    Default BG80 is so great!

    I tried BG 80 on a back-up racket and it brings me so much power. I will try it on my AT 700.

    glad you like it, the only imperfection is that it's not durable

    I find it to be quite durable. Perhaps you mean BG-85.

    I think Optiblue is right.

    BG-80 are competition strings, they are absolutely amazing, but only for a period of time. They lose tension and break easy after some time. Possibly the best rounded strings are the 68Ti. They sound very similar to BG 80, almost the same power and they keep their tension for a long time. BG 85s are just not meant for colder countries, they break very easy.

    BG80s are still my favourite, but 65ti are more practical.

    BG-80 is a great string. Like others have said, it is a great performer but it can break easily if strung at a high tension. One of my favourite strings.

    BG80 is also my favorite. After using several Yonex string productline from BG65, BG65-Ti, BG66, BG68-Ti until NanoGy 95 i must respectively say that no other string can't give you the feeling like BG 80.
    Beside the fact of losing tension very quick and lacking of durability it is worth to restring it every time. The cost factor should be minimal in comparision to Nanogy 95 or BG-66, that cost definetly a mile more.The benefit out of it should be taken into account.

    I can testify that BG-80 is good at retaining tension and definitely is durable enough. I've had mine on my racket for around 1 1/2-2 years, and it has dropped only slightly in tension, but has not deteriorated further. It was originally strung at around 24 lbs. I suppose it might not be the same if the tension had initially been higher.

    I agree, BG-80s are quite amazing except there one flaw for me. I strung my racket with the 80s at 23lbs (I know your all are wondering if I'm a weakling or something, I am just a sophomore in High School). Whenever I hit a hard shot like a smash or a kill I find that my strings have shifted from the point of contact with the shuttle, like the strings have shifted. This doesn't really bring any problem except I have to shift them back into position after the rally. Does this happen to anyone else? or is it just because my strings are at a low tension?

    They will do that if you slice the shuttle. This has nothing to do with strength. Also, to cooler, I don't know, but a Bugatti Veyron can well surpass that. It just costs twice as much.

    I hardly ever slice the shuttle, its mostly when I hit it dead on.

    Fun Fact: Cristiano Ronaldo, for all you soccer fans, beat a Veyron in a race need proof? http://youtube.com/watch?v=m89ahcVC73g
