    Hi all

    I have a friend who's quite a powerful smasher and we rotate between feather and nylon depending on where we play during the week.

    He's snapped 2x ZM65 @ 24x26 in less than 2 months..

    Should we switch him over to ZM67 @ 24x26?

    Tell him to have 2 rackets set up.

    For feather, lighter one with zm65 @24/26.

    For plastic, heavier one with zm65 @22/24.

    LoL. Snapped 2 strings in Sunday's matches... most players in the firdt two teams in our club break strings at least once a month, som 3-4 times a month....and nobody uses anything thinner than Bg80

    I've fitted him this time with BG80 @ 24x26 lbs.

    We'll see if that makes a difference, in Japan, he's used to 28-31 lb

    Haha, a miracle he can even play decently with 24/26, then

    Definitely..

    The strings he used in Japan I believe were all 68 gauge and thicker.. (there is a language barrier tho) haha.

    In that case, (IMO) I'm not sure I can see how the ZM65 would break so easily on him at 24x26 even if he's only playing plastics. ZM65 is not exactly a flimsy string. I'd assume he doesn't do mishits or off-centre hits too often, etc if he's a player who's been used to 28-31 lbs.

    White 65 seemed a bit frail, it only lasted me a month or so of not a lot of use. I'm not sure how yellow compares for durability but you could try red which seems to have the durability of a .70 so far.

    Personally I didn't really notice much of a difference in durability between red and white - both usually lasted me a month or until a very bad mishit

    The first zm65 was red and it was a bit more durable, lasted 3 weeks... But the white one which was newly strung, broke during its first session lol...

    He's recently coming back from hiatus and was previously using Nanospeed series. There were a few bad misshits but they didn't break at that moment.. Could it have weaken the strings?

    So, anyone done any testing on Zm65TI?

    I'm curious on how close it is to BG65TI and what kind of tension loss it exhibits if anyone has tried it.

    any zm65 has nothing in common with 65Ti. 65Ti is a dull string, rather low repulsion, nothing special about it.

    Well, I cant really agree on that, for a .7 string the 65Ti is quite repulsive. Once you get used to it its one of my favorite strings.... the Zm65 is a lot thinner, so its more repulsive and has slightly better touch. As its very rough, it allows easier tumbling net shots.
    For me, its not as good a string as the 65Ti though. Somehow the thickness and slightly softer feel give the 65Ti a massive and controlled feeling, whereas the Zm feels a little hard and unflexible. For me, adapting to a more slippery surface has never been a problem, so I can play tumbling net shots and sliced smashes/drops just as well with the 65Ti, but some may have problems with it in those areas.
    Tension loss is pretty comparable, maybe just a tad more on the Zm.

    Thanks both, but it appears from your posts that you were comparing standard ZM65 with BG65TI and not newer ZM65TI with BG65TI as I was asking?

    There is a difference in the string diameter between the two strings.
    Also, I believe all Ti coated strings are quite slippery.

    I used to play with BG65Ti a long time ago. The darn string never broke, (admittedly, I had strung at 21x23 back then- not exactly "challenging") and after a while, felt like you do waking up too early with a hangover on a cold, dark winter morning. Highly recommended for your opponents' racquets.

    I only broke one so far iirc, but the first two months it was very playable. Granted, at 30lbs, but still...its a very nice string for medium stiff rackets like the N50, N70, for stiffer rackets its not quite repulsive enough imop. Bg80 cant be beaten in terms of crispness...
