Benefits of Stringing?
So after 4 years of playing with factory strung strings for my cab 7000 df, i've decided to get new strings for the first time. I'm hoping either to get the BG-65 or 66 at my local sports store. Just wondering what are the benefits of getting new string rather than opposed to factory strung strings? And also how long does it usually take to get used to the new string in terms of hitting/smashing etc..
Planning also to get it strung @ 23Lbs.

I believe you've asked a similar question before?
The factory strung string tension is probably less than 18lbs by now. Not to mention the string is "dried up" and feels very "dead".
If you play 3-4 times a week, you should at least try to replace the strings every 2-3 months as the string tension and performance would have dropped.
You will have to experiment and find out what is your optimum string tension as everyone's preference differs.
You may need some time to adjust to your new strings as your strokes will differ due to higher stringing tension. More wrist action is required as the tension increases.
Personally, I am using NBG 98 (or BG 66 when I'm broke! ) strung @ 26lbs.

In terms of quality to value ratio, I'd recommend BG-66 or BG-80. BG-66 is less durable and the same price as BG-80 but most people love its feel. If you've got more to spend on strings, I'd recommend NBG-98. It's powerful, makes a terrifying boom and is fairly durable despite being only 0.66mm. However, some people say it feels rather numb (doesn't really bother me although it definitely doesn't give you as much feedback/feel as BG-66). If you've got ludicrous amounts to spend on strings, go for Yonex CBG-100 (as long as you're not going above 24Lbs) or Babolat VS touch. Both provide supreme feel and power but neither enjoys high tensions (although VS touch handles them better) and neither is particularly durable. They're incredibly expensive but if you want the best, you can't do much better than Babolat VS touch.

Does anyone knows the differences between NBG98 and NBG95?I cant find any NBG98 strings in badminton stores here in Kuala Lumpur,Malaysia.

string review. Both are said to feel slightly numb but give massive power and a great sound. I think they're more suited to power players than control/defence players. If you play more of a control game, BG-66 is a great choice.

Since I have my bg-65 strung @ 24lbs(cab 7000 df) will it run the risk of breaking? Or no since it's an aluminum shaft.

No, it won't. Considering how the string is thick and the tension is not that high.
