    There're some rumours that improved mk2 versions of ZM62, 67, and 70 are coming soon...
    Hopefully I'll use all my sets by that time

    So, I tried ZM62 at 12,5kg (~27,5lbs), I normally use BG80 at 13kg (~28,6lbs).
    First off the strings offcourse seem much tighter, to get the same feel as bg80 it should've been 1lbs lower I figure.

    However I just love it like this! It feels tighter than 80, but somehow it doesn't feel as 'stiff' as bg80. It's weird to describe; it's a somewhat soft string, but very very crisp and amazing feel. It's a bloody paradox

    it is bloody additive. the magic of thin and tight strings. it will cost you many sleepless nights as you will be breaking strings every week. but you are happy to do it because nothing else can replace that feeling.

    that's what we have been talking about.

    and i am hooked too.

    now my mission is to find the lowest tension in which we can find the same feeling. hopefully 25lbs.

    awesome. hope USPS isn't too bogged down. i am saving this ARC10 for it to get the fairest comparison. what's the recommended tension? the ZM65 was 27/27 which felt great.

    On ZM62: of course for the crisp feel 27lbs. or higher feels the best but durability and power are lacking, relatively speaking.

    For max power, probably around 24-25lbs. but then it just doesn't feel as crisp, as good.

    It's up to you.

    so in terms of tension, it behaves the same as before.

    my other ARC10 with ZM62 is about to snap too. will be interesting to have a A/B comparison with the current production ZM62.

    Uhhhh, yes? Panda believes most string behave that way; the key is to find the string's "ultimate limit" relative to you.

    alright. the other ARC10 w/ ZM62 did break today as expected. it broke on a really tough game and my other ARC10 was also out of commission. cost me a game.

    but now, ZM62 vs. ZM62PT A/B comparison coming up. give me a few days.

    Ya it's RKEP G09 elite overgrip. If he put the grips in a pile the picture would be smaller xD
