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?
    Actually a string that moves, especially the mains, means that it is a string of quality, AOTBE. Strings move because they are being moved by the shuttle. Strings that are slippery from coatings do not "bite" deep into the cork, hence loss of control and nice looking strings that remain straight with angular shots. The vectran spiral windings of the two vectran strings, BG80 and BG85, create a more friction surface. It is this friction surface that gives the two Yonex vectran strings "bite". When strings really bite, they give exceptional control and power, in the direction of your swing/racquet contact, including moving the string. Increasing tension will somewhat reduce string movement. But a powerful angular shot should move quality strings, even at very high tensions of 33lbs.

    Haha, the Veyron is barely even being pushed. It probably didn't even reach 15-20 mph yet.

    am i the only one who does not think as highly of this string? maybe it is just me, because i have not played with BG80 long enough. but i have played with it a "considerable" amount and i find it weird.

    i may not be contacting properly on the sweetspot of the racket, but when i do connect i just get this weird swishing sound as if i did not even hit it at all. i have played with BG80 for a while now so it is kind of frustrating.

    swishing sound but no bang?... sounds like you're twisting the racket head slightly causing you to get a non flat contact, ever so slightly slicing the shuttle.

    i was doing this last year. worked on my swing and no i get 'boom', instead of 'swish'

    I love bg80s the thing I don't like about them is when I was stringing my racquet the awl popped the string. And they seem to show wear really quick.

    You use the awl when stringing? That is one sure way of popping strings and weakening grommets and racquet frame.

    I don't know... I've had BG-80 on my rackets for around 3 months, and they're still in tact, and still around the same tension... Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

    Anywho, I definitely agree that BG-80 strings are amazing. I used to use BG-65Ti, and when I switched from BG-80, I was like "wow this is amazing". When I used my friends racket (same racket, strung with BG-65Ti), my shots were lacking something =X
