I have had a few sets of Zymax 62 in my Nanospeed 8000 for a couple of months now. I have found that the string is very thin, thinnest on the market. It has decent feel and lots of repulsion power. The claims on the packaging about holding string tension is justified too.
The first set i put in, strung at 24lb were quite durable. Initially there was quite a bit of movement on the strings as they bedded in. This could be due to the tension rather than the actual string. As they settled, they gave good power and control. This set lasted about 12 weeks before i cut them out, which is roughly how long BG80 would last in my racket. They were starting to wear and wouldn't have lasted much longer, but the tension was still there.
I then strung my racket with BG85 to compare, totally different feel and no where near as durable. I strung my racket with another set of Zymax 62 last week. They snapped due to a mis-hit on the same night. I found that the racket tended to string very tightly with Zymax compared to Yonex string. So i have restrung with Zymax again the following day, but at 23lb instead. I played a tournament with them at the weekend and they are still in my racket now.
I would say Zymax reminds me of BG68Ti, but significantly thinner and won't lose tension. As a high performance string, i am impressed enough to continue using it.

Im still evaluating but Id first like to say, if you use a .66 string and go to the .62 zymax, drop 5-10% on tension for a similar feel. I strung mine at my usual 23 constant pull and it felt much tighter.

Until now I have used MP77 with Zymax (0.62 24 x 26) for about 20 hours men's doubles, in short, I am very happy with the string!
As Edd said, lots of repulsion power, hence I don't suggest what "illusionistpro" recommended ( drop 5-10% on tension for a similar feel), instead, you should increase about 5-10% because this string is extremely powerful again as Edd mentioned, there's quite a bit of movement on the strings as they bedded in, especially on mains, should I increase the tension on cross to stop mains moving??? (pro stringer pls advise !! ) cos I didn't have the same problem with BG80 or BG65Ti before. this "main moving" issue is the only thing I feel a bit annoyed. Apart from that, this string is perfect, best I've ever used, and I haven't noticed any damage to the strings I suppose it's durable at 24 lbs.

Available on ebay?
What do you guys thing about buying from ebay. The Zymax's are available from a seller called fyldesports for around 75 pounds. I am very tempted to buy the .62 from him.

Just to report that the .67mm Zymax is truly wonderful.
Have been playing with it for 2 weeks and is a definite improvement in string manufacturing technique. Couldn't say what it is cause I've no idea.
Check it out if you have access to it.
