    Question Is BG70 pro as durable as BG65??

    According to yonex, it seems that 70pro durabilty is less than BG65...
    (because 70pro rated as 7 while 65 rated as 8)

    But however when you play with it at the same tension for both string, which one do u find is more durable??? or just similar??

    DinkALot's review state that they have similar duraility as excellent-, but I still want to know how others think about it..Thanks!!

    They last a similar amount of time but BG-70 holds its tension better. The two of them also have very different feels - BG-70 feels much stiffer. Both come alive at higher tensions.

    I have tried both a few times , both seemed to break at approximatley the same times for me.

    I think both their durabilites were the same for me , but BG65 may on average be slightly more durable.

    i agree. when i use 70Pro, after a decent amount of time-10 months- the strings popped. i cannot pop BG65 strings at all.

    10 months is already very long...
    In the past I used BG80, and under my powerful smashing, the string just broke within 3 weeks.....
    So I now string my racjet with BG70pro..

    IMO i really dont like 70, is too stiff.. and 65 has a smoother feel, but then again on my opinion, but i know that 70 hold tension much better than 65, but 65.. really hard to break lol.

    Like others have said, the durability of the two strings are so similar that you won't really be able to notice a difference between them. They'll both last ages... usually by that time the tension has fallen so far below where you want it that you feel like cutting it anyway. Always take what manufacturers say with a grain of salt - after all, they do employ some marketing tactics...
