Nice points there kwun. I'd have to agree. ZM67 is a whole different string entirely from 62 and 70 IMO. Control is the only department I am not lacking in, so thats why I prefer 67 right now. But now that my smash is getting better, I'm slowly coming back to 62. The difference is nothing like BG85 to BG80, the difference makes it more like the difference between BG80 to BG66. Both very repulsive, but play differently.

How about increasing the tension on ZM67 by 2lbs-3lbs over ZM62.
05-25-2010, 07:28 AM #343
+2lbs is not enough, 3 or 4 would be better but I'm sure the earlybirds in this thread have tried that already?

I've tried doing that already. ZM62 at 24 vs ZM67 at 25, 26, 27, 28, and 29lbs.
ZM67 IMO felt closest at 27, but at that tension, it's too difficult to generate power with any of my rackets except for my Zelm PP10K.

I think Strings should be compared on a like for like basis - same tension, same racket. otherwise the comparison isn't fair.

Kwun, I believe TEP means trying to simulate the feel of a thinner string by stretching the thicker string more, which is what I was trying to do with my experiments. As I'm sure you already know, the goal with this is to get the same feel of a thinner, more fragile string with a thicker, more durable string.
Jamesd20, I agree with you wholeheartedly. But I always find it interesting to see at what different tensions dissimilar strings will feel the similar, which I especially need to know as someone who strings for others and sells strings as part of my business because customers are always looking for the best results with the least amount of money.

Say a player finds it hard to generate easy power on ZM67 at 27lbs, ask him to use it for a while, preferably with a relaxed arm/hand and body as he zeros in for the shot. This will speed up the racquet head speed after a period of adjustment. He will eventually learn how to generate power from a relaxed approach.

i have played with the ZM62 and ZM67, both strung at 23.5lbs on 2 different ARC10. so i have both available to compare.
in terms of feel/control, nothing beats ZM62, the stiffer string bed and the response is 2nd to none. ZM67 feels a bit softer and don't have the same type of feedback.
in term of power, i like ZM67, in fact, ZM67 has quite a big more power and omph than the ZM62. it just explodes into the shuttlecock with a huge bang.
in term of defense, i also like the ZM67, ZM62 was too stiff to produce the right amount of bounce. while ZM67 just bounces the shuttle way back to the baseline.
for what i play, i will use ZM62 for mixed where there are a lot more push and touch shots, while i will use ZM67 for the power and defense.

question on the RED strings -- do they leave a mark on the shuttlecock (cork) when you hit with them?
Or maybe am I remembering those patterns applied to stringbed with red markers which leaves marks on shuttle corks... hmm...

I made the following comparison between ZM62 and BG66M
As you see I am keen to get hold of some ZM Pro, so I wrote a message on Ashway's facebook wall (http://www.facebook.com/Ashaway?v=wa...d=401540073646 ) and got the following reply, which I thought you all might be interested in
"Yes, ZyMax 62 is very thin and not for everyone. We do not have plans to stock a 0.65mm string at the moment. However the construction of ZM62 will be changed slightly to increase durability a little, this will be available from September 2010. Can I suggest you try ZyMax 67 in the meantime, it is still very thin, performs well and lasts longer than the ultra fine ZM62."
Any comments welcome.

Heh Alpinerock, the "ZM Pro" is still just a prototype. I don't believe a PR rep running a FB page would know anything about the Badminton R&D department's new products except for regarding what has been released already.

Thanks for this singnflip4life. I appreciate that there are forum members such as yourself and Dinkalot whose knowledge of the industry is very much more extensive than my own.
So I just need to keep watching this space.
