    at 29lbs i am surprised it didn't break *before* the session.

    i tried zm67 @ 26.5lbs and it feel a bit dead to me. i much prefer that string at around 24lbs.

    I had to try it given the reputation of the Panda taking 40lbs
    I'll give the 24lbs a shot with the ZM67.

    i am starting to think that ZM62 @ 27lbs is just too much. ZM62 @ 22-23lbs can last me 3 weeks. 27lbs can be anything from 5mins to 2 weeks. the ZM62PT isn't any better in terms of durability. the cost of using this string is just too high.
    I just ordered a couple of sets of BG65 to try at 32 lbs because I'm thinking exactly the same thing. Two mishits in two days could be unlucky, but if I get 5 sessions out of a BG65 at 32 then I'm jumping ship again...

    Could be that I haven't got used to NSP yet - there's too much main poking out of the top, and I'm playing it like OSP...

    Default Zm67

    It's a very lively string at 31 X 33. Trust me !

    Default Bg65

    The optimum tension for BG65 is 33 X 35.

    Grandmaster Pete, you are just too much man.
    I'm looking forward to stringing Z67 for the first time this weekend.

    Maybe I don't hit hard enough, or I don't mishit enough, but ZM62 at 27lbs is durable enough for my liking.

    To be honest, I probably don't play enough.

    As for hybrid stringing, I recommend staying away from a tension differential higher than a pound, especially due to the large difference in string diameter between ZM62 and ZM67. If I were asked to do a 67/62 hybrid for durability, I'd recommend 62 on the mains and 67 on the crosses, with equal tension or have reference tension on mains with a +1lb on the crosses.

    Sorry, Panda disagrees. Rule of thumb is always use the more durable string for the mains. Crosses usually only break on a mishit near the edge of the frame.

    In fact, Panda has never seen a cross break in the middle before a main.

    I always break mains so I have the 67 as the mains and 62 at cross. I'll report back on the Ti-10 once it breaks. They are about to go on them as I see some fraying on the string bed. That has the 67main and 62cross at 25/27lbs

    I understand the concept of having the more durable string in the mains, because in tennis, the mains are what impart most of the spin to the ball, and are the ones that are thus stressed the most during play.

    However I found that this is simply not the case with badminton, at least for me. When I hybrid ZM67 and ZM62, I find having the ZM67 results in a less lively bed compared to having ZM62 in the mains. Also, I found that with ZM67 in the mains and ZM62 in the crosses resulted in a LOT of dead center cross string breaks. When I switched them around, the stringbed lasted longer and felt better to me while playing. It achieved the goal of truly "hybrid"-ing the strings, instead of making a very brittle version of ZM67. Just personal experience.

    However, due to how much of a pain in the butt it was to do using reels of ZM67 and packs of ZM62, I've switched to pure ZM67 at a higher tension because its more economical. Once I lessen the amount of reels of ZM67 I have (about 10), I will look into hybrid stringing again with ZM62. But with the new version of the strings, I may change my mind.

    Unfortunately I didn't think it all the way to the end and have yellow 67 and white 62.

    Speaking of ZyMax, Panda just found this great deal from Racket Expert on EBay:

    $3.75/pack for ZM62/67/70 + shipping!

    That's an incredible price. The lowest Panda has seen in the U.S. is $5.00/pack+ shipping.

    The shipping to the U.S. is: $2.50 for the 1st pack and $0.25 for each additional pack which is the best deal around.

    Just a heads up with that, the sets are without Ashaway packaging, and look to be sets cut from reels.

    Those who have ordered from me before know I also offer this for $4 per 10m set, and each set is usually cut with an extra .2-.3m to ensure even those who cut for two piece setup will have enough string.

    The packaging is designed by the Asian region distributor and different distributors in the Asian region use this design with some variation. Also the Asian Zymax strings seem to have better playability as I believe the Zymax strings went through extensive tests by the Asian regional distributor and their version may incorporate changes suitable for Asian players.
    Yes, the strings are cut by the Asian regional distributor from perhaps 1,000 meter rolls and then resold to distributors in lots of 100 pcs x 10 meters in a rolled net. Separating each string from the rolled net is very messy and you need some special tool to do this well.
