    It's cause the Zymax does not notch much like Yonex strings so they tend to move around more.

    Newly strung strings that move, all other things being equal, are due to the surface friction of the strings.
    Strings with smooth surfaces do not move even when newly strung, because the shuttle when in less than perfect contact with the strings, will slip and hence lose some power. String surfaces that have some friction will move the strings more when new, because the shuttle will not slide or slip but will instead do one of two things-generates max. power when squarely hit or moves the strings when hit off the shuttle center.
    Just like time means different things from different perspectives, one must also look at the string's movement from two perspectives, namely, the strings and then the way the shuttle is hit.
    Strings that move when new and then stop moving after sometime should be replaced because it has lost power and crispness from loss of string surface friction.

    Place it on table, mic facing you. With your 3rd and 4th fingernails, strum across the stringbed like a guitar close to the mic.

    Should be around 1000-1300 Hz. Try holding onto the handle, not the shaft, so that it's allowed to resonate freely.

    And try strumming with varying speeds and pressures until you get the loudest tone.

    I hope so.

    If I were them I would label it "Out of Stock" instead of remove it from the list.

    I got a bad feeling. Maybe I worry too much

    Hi, can anyone give me a quick summary between the zymax strings? Is ZM65 the best for retaining tension and feel without being ridiculously not durable? Also, is there much difference between colours and what is the general consensus about which is best? thanks
