    I thought the ZM62 had decent durability with feather shuttles? Is it really that fragile?

    Softer feeling sounds about right. I have soft hands

    I appreciate the responses but it was the same before I added the head tape (ok so it might have been too heavy even before that) and the other racquet with mp66 was fine with and without tape mod.

    I love the repulsion! I did't exactly find myself wanting for power with MP66 but if I can tweak the ZM65 tension to get a more solid defence then I'd be a happy chappy. Got more power and better dropshots from ZM65, presume that wouldn't go completely to pot by a small adjustment. Best I stick with what I can use while I'm still on beginner tension

    Is it just me or that the white version of the ZM65 doesn't look very white?

    I agree, I've ordered 10 packs of ZM65 from Eric (Squash_Mart) and I've found the "white" to look more like a Creme/off-white colour.

    Yea, that's exactly what I was thinking. It shouldn't be that hard to make it white...

    oh man... looks like you got the defective batch... here, i'll take it off your hands for half price




    that's just the natural string colour! doesn't matter if it's not 0,0,0 white!

    as a matter of fact, i'd prefer them not to add chemicals or bleach it to make it white if it'd negatively impact the string performance in any way

    Interesting. I had to dig into my string supply today to restring some rackets and sure enough, the ZM65s I had were off-white. Doesn't really bother me TBH.

    So you're saying the yellow version will perform worse than the white version?

    According to some who are very experienced in playing with different rackets and strings, like Dink and Taneepak, the natural beige white version is always the best in repulsion, feel, crispness, etc.

    i care to differ.

    i have tried the red and the white. the red seems to be more crispy than the white.

    Just a friendly advise

    Its not good to be too detail in the equipment one use especially

    if one is a competitive player.

    Unless they are totally out or too far from your usual preference.

    I have seen too many players losing the game just because of

    string, tension, grip, shoes and even shirts!

    As for colors of string, yes they do differ

    and each batch/shipment of string of the same color also differ.

    Black used to be the worst among the colors and its not a myth
