    Interesting. I have not had this problem with the Zymax on any racket I've strung, even on tensions up to 28lbs.

    I think you need to move to a bigger knot...

    This is a sign of an inexperienced stringer. Thin strings will require more turns/loops of the both tie-off and starting knots.

    Thanks for the tips. At least these knots do not damage the grommets I suppose?

    These knots are used for the start and tie-off.

    Right, but the 2 loops are only good enough for tennis stringing. For badminton, the starting knot should have between 4 to 5 loops and the tie-off 3 loops. It needs a little skill to do a 5-loop starting knot that looks tidy and nest. If not done probably and with some skill, a 5-loop starting knot on a Zymax 62 will look rather messy and silly looking.

    I have a limited supply of Zymax 62 and 67 strings. I can make make some of them available for Hong Kong residents but only in lots of 10 pcs.

    Recently due to a silly miss hit, i snapped my bg 80.
    I use to use a stringer that told me that my rackets were strung at 28lbs... however, since meeting a friends father, who had been stringer for many years, he told me that the machine that did my stringer must of been wrong (scaled) as it was about 21/22, on his machine.
    I have changed Stringers since then due to great price and 'more precise scaled' stringing.
    Anyway, he recently bought the ashaway zymax 70s (deliberately as he knows my game and the tension +'s that i like) and he offered to string it high for me.
    i have it with me now a fresh n90 strung at 28lbs.
    Will write a little feedback when i test it tomorrow.

    How would people compare NBG98 in term of power, control and durability towards 62, 67 and 70? NBG98 is costing me a bit too much now and i need to find an alternative string.

    Default Zymax 62 stringing

    I remember giving my stringer one of my rackets to string with Zymax 62, he mentioned he had never (yet) seen such a thin string, anyhow, he was meant to string it 1 piece, half way through it, the string broke. So in the end he strung it with 2 piece. Luckily it broke in a convenient location that enabled to change plans for 2 piece. And yes, he knotted a lot more than in the pic with Arc 7 above.

    My Zymax 62 (yellow one) was strung on a Wilson Ncode N3 at 24lbs. Once it was strung, it played very well, no complaints.

    Not to imply anything bad about your stringer as accidents can happen, but ZM62 definitely should not break at a tension as low as 24lbs.

    well, I haven't tried ZM62, but strung various thin strings. When you tension a string and accidentally knick it with your awl, pliers, scissors, or clamps and then pull tension on it, it will break, even at 24lbs
    and if it doesn't break instantly, it'll be raveling pretty badly before the first hit.
    Another option would be if the string was twisting around itself a lot and got 'caught' before a grommet. if a stringer tries to tension that 'clutter' it'll most likely snap. (I had it with PG66 once)
