I am actually using BG-65 @ 21-22 lbs. Could I get more power by using one of these : BG85, BG80, Nanogy95, BG68Ti or BG66 @ 24 lbs. ???

Thank you very much Phandrew!!! I'll check out what I can get in town.
So 23-24 with these powerful strings with high repulsion, will be more powerful then durability strings like BG65 @ 21-22... Is it gonna hard to handle? I tried it at like 23-24 with my BG65 last year and found it hard to generate power, but nice control and crispy feeling though. TY! PEACE!

The only one of these I can get in my town is BG-80. I will check what I can get on the Internet... like bg-66 or nbg98-95...

Just buy strings from these websites since they are the cheapest for me

I will check that out. I wanted to deal in my country, lesser shipping cost and delay.

Hey Thank you Phandrew!!!
I just ordered a box of 10 BG66 packs from MBS, via Ebay. I will tell you if I like em.
It is maybe going to be the right alternative for changing rackets.

I have tried higher tension like 28lbs with my Nanospeed 8000 and find the power is lesser compared to tension of 24lbs. However, I noticed the speed is faster if you tap the shuttle with the higher tension racket because the shuttle tends to have a snapping effect. So it is very good for net shot...and some precision shot like rolling over the net. You need a lot of wrist work and finger muscles to use the higher tension racket. That is why they are mainly used by advanced players. For beginners, we are just using the lesser tension so that we generate power like a quick smash to the sideline. But when we play net shot, the shuttle tends to be more "bouncy" and easier for the opponent to kill it.
