    looks interesting. durability 8/10 is surprising given this is a 0.66mm string. unfortunately, this is not available in singapore yet. also, like jhirata, i'm quite surprised to know this was manufactured in Japan. btw, what's the price like?

    The market price of it is actually more expensive compared to the BG66.In my place,it costs around 35rmb.The cheapest i found in the net is 28rmb.While the SP BG66 is around 25-30 in the net.This string is recommended if u like the thin string feel.

    Yes..i think it's the 2nd highest in the durability term,if compared to the other victor strings.Even marked more durable compared to the cheaper 0.68 and the 0.70.Hehe..

    Bro, this is available in Singapore. I saw it at Gala Sports on Monday. Can't remember the price, probably S$16 (including restring labour).

    According to the person there, this plays like BG66 but more durable, I will definitely give it a try as all my strings now are BG66, so itching to try something else.

    So far I only saw it there, maybe you can buy the string only from them, ask them to take the labour charge out of it ?

    Saw the vs-650 at chris's 'Victor' showroom at AMK hawker center. In fact, he has the whole range of victor string. Never ask the price though.

    Victor VS650 feels like BG66 and its more durable. Worth to try!
