ZM65 @ 27lbs.
strange string. it produces a pretty good boom sound when hitting really hard. but for mid/light shots, the feeling is kind of dead.
feels kinda like the ZM70.
i don't like it. ZM62 is much better for me.

Restring my racquet with ZM67 @ 24lbs. Play for 2 hrs and found string movement more on the main and less on the cross.
Never experience it with BG66. Any idea what cause the string movement?

At any given tension string movement when the strings are newly strung is a sign of high quality. In other words the ZM62 is a more grippy string than the BG66.
From the above it also means that when strings stop moving after a few weeks of play, it is about time to replace with a new string job. Newly strung strings that do not move have almost no grip on their surfaces-the cork of the shuttle slips/skids away more instead of biting deep into the cork base.
Strings that move initially but then stop moving after a few weeks of play have their "contact points" between the mains and crosses bruised or broken into to form notches. It is these notches that stop string movement on old strings.
In brief, strings that don't move when new are poor strings.

I also experience string movement woth ZM70 and Panda told me the same thing that was mentioned above.
So when the string stops moving, that's the time to replace the string?

On the court I notice more movement also on the ZM62 then BG-80 or 66. So if this string movment is good, does that mean after every rally we should check/move the strings or just let it be and play on?

Ok I will continue checking my strings perodically. Another question, since stringing at higher tension doesn't eliminate string movement but minimizies. Does it affect how quickly the string will lose it's playability. Example ZM62 at 25lbs would keep it's playability longer then 27lbs. Since at higher tensions the string is strung tighter togther it would make it's notches quicker then a lower strung string right?
Going off topic a bit.

Off topic too...
I'm using zymax 62 @ 24lbs and I noticed that small threads are popping out from the strings. Does this mean I have to replace the string soon?

thinner ones more especially zymax 0.62
and such movement of string depends on how you hit the bird,
flat most of the time or sometime with a bit of slice.
replacing your string when it stops moving?
i think not necessary unless its quite long, say a month onwards or several sessions
for fine strings like 0.62-0.66 or when you get that 'dead feel'
just to illustrate:
i have a spare racket for heavy feeding and i am very sure the string tension has zero elasticity, no more resilience, dead like a duck but main string still moves!

it felt really really good. i have never felt something as powerful as this string on my ARC10 yet.
