    LCW is the product embassador as on the site - perhaps the new Sharp?

    BG66 Sharp is actually a 0.68mm gauge string. From what I heard from an exprienced stringer, The famed BG66S is braided like other BG66 strings but has a feel resembling the 8-series (80/85) string. If "Force" combines BG80's hard feeling and BG66's repulsion then I'm sold

    Now the gauge is 0.65mm, same as the 66UM. Being a thin gauge string lover I really can't wait..I just hope it does lose feel and tension as quickly.

    66, 66 Maxima, 66 Ultimax... and now this. Anybody else think Yonex are over-stuffing the thin end?

    If they want something new-new, how about a 0.66/0.65 Vectran?

    Well, if this string is priced the same as UM 66 BUT does not lose tension as quickly as the UM, then this would be my new fave string after the NBG 98...

    Surely minimizing tension loss would mean you'd sell less string...

    The more cynicism you show, the more I like you.

    Looks promising, we need this to hit retail fast.

    It's expensive, it makes you feel great but it doesn't last.... sure sounds like how I'd describe something else!
