Thread: Zymax strings

Thanks Paul. I find BG80 pretty much stays put with my current stringer. In the past it's dropped fairly dramatically but I've weeded out the good stringers from the not so good, so I have consistency there.
I'm going to stick with 24lbs, largely so I can compare apples with apples, and from there we'll see how things go.
There seems to be consensus that the 62 works better at lower tensions, so I might even try that next as I've never used anything under .66.
Curious to see how you go with the Maxima.

Tried briefly my zymax 62 on Superwaves 35 at 25lbs, string moves alot on cross and main. Never experience it before. Excellent sound and repulsion with good control. Might still to it long term. Just find moving the string back a hassle. LOL

String is good. I am just lazy to shift it back that's all. But for the price it is still bearable

I like moving strings back. Nice routine between points.

Agreed ET, I like that too. An extra moment to cool off.

Haha, I'm the biggest time waster. Makes up for my complete lack of fitness.

Adjusting strings helps me to catch my breath, shake off the last rally, and ready myself for the next point, sharpen my concentration.
These strings really do wiggle quite a bit, no matter the tension. Though after quite a bit of testing, these are very very good strings, but I will save them for when I get stronger. To get the feel I'm looking for, I'd need to string these at 24 or 25 and I simply can't flex these strings at that tension. I'm most likely sticking with BG66 at 22/25, unless this last ZM62 at 23lbs changes my mind.

You know sometimes when you are on a roll, you feel liek just continuing so that opponent cannot stop and think. LOL That's y i don't like to adjust string. And for zymax, it is not just the main that moves, even the cross moves. So after every shot i got alot of strings to move it back

True, capitalize on momentum sometimes. Though really, string movement doesn't really matter a whole lot IMO. It doesnt affect my shots too much, if at all. So sometimes I don't even worry about it. A good strong clear will usually be a good reset button.

Strung my 3 Victor BS08 with Zymax62 at 30x32.5 yesterday.
The string drops tension at the first day like all do, but less than any string I know. (Half than BG80 I'd say.)
Today, had some matches with the string:
The sound is awesome! Everyone searching for a high-pitch sound, get Zymax62.
It drops nearly no tension through playing, the string movement is a pitty, but acceptable in comparison to the huge power the string provides.
I was used to play BG80 at the same tension, but Zymax62 totally blows my mind, it's just better in all aspects (durability I can't evaluate obv)
As someone mentioned before, it's an easy to play agressive clears and drop shots, obv. the smash is the huge strenght of this racket, transforming a well placed half-smash into a very very sharp shot.
+++The string can be strung very nice, it's good to work with.+++

Having tried 62 and 67 I would certainly agree that 62 works better at lower tension. I use 62 on my NS9900 at a "mere" 26 lbs, and despite feeling like 29 lbs it is wonderful - EXTREMELY powerful with a great solid feel and a really high PING when you open up on a shot. IME the absolute limit with the 62 is 28 ECP; any higher and the durability falls down like a sack of spuds.
The 67 I'm still undecided upon - I have it in my Arc-Z at 26 lbs but I am almost certainly going to swap it for 62 before I do my proper review of that racket. The 62 has a "special" quality about it thanks to the thinness; the 67 carries all the stiffness of Zyex but the mid-range thickness somewhat mitigates the available power. It may well be that I need to pull it tighter, or that the Arc-Z's especially dense pattern is tainting my experience, so I'm not committing to any judgments yet.
I have a set of 66Maxima coming soon for review from MBS - I hope I don't love it because it's REALLY expensive!

Never heard of them. Are they dodgy or something?
