Odd string behaviour
I have been playing with zymax for 4 weeks now (23lbs*25lbs, panda power trinity) with no problems, this is a little odd and I will explain why:
After it had been strung for about 1 week something very odd happened, the string frayed lengthways along the string for about 2mm, leaving a "shard" of string. This fell off over the next few points leaving me to expect string breakage at any moment. However it still hasn't happened.
I haven't noticed a performance drop and the string still looks fine at the point it frayed, just thinner.
Does anyone have an explanation for this? I'm used to the strings snapping through grooves forming in it. Not semi shattering then not breaking...
The shot it occured on was an uncharacteristically powerful smash (into the net) with the racket face slicing across the shuttle fairly heavily as I wasn't holding it quite right.
I do agree that the zymax moves around a lot, this doesn't appear to affect performance in any way though. In fact I find when string doesn't move much it makes things feel odd.

Asked this question in YY's 66Maxima string thread. would like to ask it here as well:
could some one compare the Zymax 62 with YY's new 66 Maxima?

thanks, Alana07. that's fast and very helpful! If I may, have one more question.
does this mean that Zymax 62 has better control then? I find BG 80 is good at control, and BG98 not so good. I am using BG80 now, and hope for an easier transition.
consider the availability and price in USA for these two strings, Zymax 62 and BG66Maxima, looks like Zymax will edge out then.

I had my Tantrum 200 strung with Zymax 62 at 26 lbs. It turned my Tantrum into a beast but it barely lasted 3 hours after continuous hard hitting and smashing. The feel was wicked! Definitely worth the experiment of trying out a string with a gauge of just 0.62mm. Still, not sure if I'll string my Tantrum back with Zymax 62. Have 2 extra packs left. Might actually go back to BG 80. All in all, had it been more durable, I'll definitely give it a double thumbs up*

You can always just mail them to me if you don't like it so I can try it out

At such low tension, could be the breakage be due to a mishit?

ZM62 = not bad at all!
I have my ZM62 increased tenson to 26/28 from 24/27 in 1 of my Woven 11A. Noted the string movement decreased a lot(not move that much).
Strung on Oct. 29 and broke today (Nov. 8) = totally last 11 days (7 days play)(totally 30+ hours of extensive play)
Not bad at all!
Powerful, very good control, hitting sound great...tenson stayed the same through the whole life of the string(no tenson droped down).
I will retring the same racket with the same ZM62 for the same tenson 26/28 again.
Let's see how long will last.

Interesting, from 24/27 to 26/28? Wouldnt you want maybe 26/29 instead?

I'm used to play BG80 at 30/32 and I'm pretty satisfied with it.
In general (for BG80) and specific to Zymax62, what tension would you advise?
Is 30/32 ok?

If you're satisfied, why switch? Though ZM62 at 24 felt like BG66 at 26 or 27, so for BG80 at 30/32 (I'd prefer to use 29.5/32.5 on get 31), I'd say shoot for 28 on ZyMax 62, so 26.7/29.3, so pretty much 27/28.
I'm in one of my semi-OCD/perfectionist moods right now, thus all the decimals.
