    Hehe...

    Anyways to my hands, the white feels crispier than red at same 23lb tension and frequency. And I've broken 2-3 whites over the past few months while the red is still going strong, except for slight drop in frequency. So red seems more durable.

    Agreed - adding dye to the Zymaxes reduced feel (as, IMO, it did with the Mk1 version, actually).

    Of course he will. It's like Christmas here every few months at my office when I get a large package from him.

    As a matter of fact, expecting a large one at the end of next week.

    Not the roll, just 3 packs. It's a sexy looking colour that would probably only look nice on darker frames!

    PG66 is a pretty fun string imo. Good grip, power, durability and the feel is really interesting. I enjoyed that string when I used to use it. What colour did you get? Put it in a racquet you're maybe not enjoying as much. Gave my old cheap racquets a new lease of life. Made them fun again.

    Personally I found the PG66 to be incredibly numb, so numb in fact that I didn't use up the 3rd and last set I got in nearly a year....strung at 31 it played like a BG80 at 26, maybe 27.....

    When I used it I was used to playing at 25lbs with bg80 but the stringer recommended having it at 27.5 to feel like 25lbs and it was good advice. 2.5lbs higher than tension with bg80 felt as hard as the bg80. But for the racquets I tried it on, I felt it was a fun string that you could mess about with. I wouldn't use it for serious games or tournaments but for casual knocking about it was just fun to mess about with. Like having a lightish, flexible racquet for messing about. It's fun to play with but I would never use it for anything serious obviously. I wouldn't recommend it as a go to string but it's fine for messing about with. Also the colours are very bright

    Sounds good. PG is more appreciable on mid end racquets than high-end racquets imo. YEMV. Enjoy the z62. It's a fun string. The power trip you would get with zy62 on your z-force would be insane though I'm sure!

    Gonna get 2 sets of the white Zm62 and 65 from Eric. Kinda wondering at what tension I should string the Zm62, as anything over 26 is pretty much guaranteeing a break in the first session, otoh that would be 4lbs below my usual tension and thus probably too soft :S

    @j4ckie - my red ZM62 was strung @ 24lbs ECP on the APP. My white ZM62 which broke in 3 hours was strung on a crank @ 24lbs on my Legend II. I got it restrung again by a different stringer @ 24lbs again and its probably also not ECP.
    I'm not sure if that is why I don't find the white any crisper than the red as @visor says it is supposed to be. But one thing I can say is that the red so far is more durable.
    But regardless of colour, I like how the ZM62 plays overall. Waiting for more of the red to come in so I can get the TK8k restrung as well.
