    Default Favourite / least favourite string

    Hi all,

    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!

    Eg:

    Favourite String(s):
    Ashaway Micropower, BG80, BG66

    Satisfactory String(s):
    BG65TI, Wilson Sensation Braid (.68)

    Unsatisfactory String(s):
    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.

    Favorite Strings:
    BG80 (21X23), BG85(22X24), NBG95(24X26)

    Satisfactory Strings:
    BG65(22X24)

    Unsatisfied Strings:
    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

    favorite: BG80.

    OK: BG65, 65P.

    hate: 65Ti. way too slippery, and have no control on the net.

    24 to 26 lbs for BG80, and 2lb + for 65s.

    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 >_<)
