    Default strings from different countries

    This is my first post and I have already tried searching with no luck. I live in the U.S. and was told they only sell BG65TI in white here and that colored string is only sold outside of the U.S.

    There is an ebay seller, badmintondeals, selling BG65TI string in red, white and blue. My question is are all the BG65 and BG65TI, or any of the other strings the same regardless if its US, SP, CH or JP versions (ie, all BG65 the same, all BG65TI the same, etc.)? The seller is from Hong Kong and I'm just concerned with getting lower quality string if there is a difference from other countries. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    IMO i wouldn't never use the BG65Ti since it lacks control. NBG95 is superior to the BG65Ti in every way apart from the price.

    Thanks for the input guys. Personally I've heard very good things about the Nanogy 95 but most of the people I play with prefer the BG65 or the BG65TI so I'm just trying to accommodate for the majority. Besides, phandrew you're right, Nanogy 95 is quite pricey.

    phandrew: if you know of any place where I can get a better deal on 45 packages of BG65, 50 of the BG65TI, and 5 of the Nanogy 95 please let me know. I'm also looking to get 2 Hi-Qua floating/flying clamps.

    my friend and i bought BG65Ti on eBay together to save on shipping. We got all sorts of colours, lol, red, blue, black, white, green... but neither of us really likes the 65Ti after playing. it is very strong, but also very slippery and waxy, and even if you put it on high tension, the strings still slide.

    I checked that out and it has some good information regarding string but it doesnt say anything regarding the different country codes. The only reason I'm concerned is because the local badminton store owner, also an avid badminton player, says that the SP versions are inferior to the US and JP versions. Although you guys say differently its starting to get me really confused and concerned since I've already placed an order for my string.

    You're right. Mybadmintonstore is a division of mystoregroup.

    My own feeling for BG65SP is a little bit slippery than BG65US, when you 1st feel it right out of the package. However, the effect is very minimal, and once you used it in a few sessions, you can hardly tell which one is which.

    I just got my order of string today and while looking at the packaging something popped into my head. If they strings are the same then what's the point of labeling them SP, US, CH, JP or whatever?

    JP strings are better than the other codes. The codes are only used for distribution purposes.
