Favourite / least favourite string
Just wondering if people have favourite and least favourite strings? Of course this will soely be opinion based.
I don't recall anyone doing this before, if they have, please tell me (or give me a ticking off, haha). Thanks!
Ashaway Micropower, BG80, BG66
BG65TI, Wilson Sensation Braid (.68)
BG68TI (for some odd reason), Wilson DynaSmash (.72)
Sadly I have only used/experienced the above.
String(s) that I want to try:
BG85, Nanogy 98, Ashaway MicroLegend

1st choice: yonex bg85 - power & control string. not so durable as complained by others. for me, at USD10 for string & labour, not that big deal to change every 2 months.
2nd choice: yonex bg80 - good playability string, value for money
3rd choice: yonex nbg98 - almost perfect string. so sad, it is expensive.
some of dislike strings;
1. bg66 - good playability string but in the 1st few sessions only. not durable.
2. rsl ti630 - cheap but slippery string and i feel that ti strings are not nice to play.
3. bg66 sharp - slippery string and expensive.

BG80 (21X23), BG85(22X24), NBG95(24X26)
BG65-Ti(23X25) (Slippery, provides little control when hitting hard. Drops tension to 20X22 in about 5-6 months)
Wanted to try strings:
BG66, BG70-Pro, NBG98

Favourite: BG 80
OK: BG 65
Dislike: NBG 95, it's too slippery for me, has good power but what good is power when your shots go everywhere (including outside the court >_<)
