Ashaway Zymax 67
Ashaway Zymax 62
Which is more durable?
Which gives a better sound?
Which holds tension best?
Whats the minimum tension to get the best out of the string, I prefer 25lbs is that enough to get the most out of the strings
And compare it to the BG80, which would you pick

Which one would you pick out of the 3, I have such a hard time picking strings, I do so much research and everyone has different opinions.
All I care about in a string is Durability, sound and holding tension
and is there any way to know whether I have the new ones apart from asking my stringer that has made 2 mistakes haha

What about zm70? Shouldn't that last quite a bit?

Tried the new Zymax 67 for a good couple of weeks, was previously using BG80 and BG66UM, all at 24lbs. This string seems to lack a fraction in power vs both the Yonex strings. I would say control is a little better than BG80 and the string feels a fraction softer (which I think I like). It's hard to be 100% sure because of the softer feel but I'm fairly certain this string loses it's tension (a lot) quicker than BG80. I strung a friends racket with Zymax 70 and that has also lost tension relatively quicker than BG80, dunno if it's because of the different string thickness though?
I wouldn't normally comment on hitting sound as I don't consider it a performance attribute, however I played a league match right after putting on the Zymax 67 (broke the strings the day before...yay timing) and it was really really noisy. On one point an opponent hit a short clear and I jump smashed targetting the feet of the opposition lady (it was mixed, they were side formation) and she let out a little yelp in response to the contact sound. Never had anything like that before in a match, and the strings just seemed really loud to the point I was finding it a little distracting.
One downside though. I picked the red version of the string and in one of the venues I played it's a very dark background. I was finding I was losing the racket face in the background blackness, white strings obviously stand out in that scenario.
Racket was Yonex Nanoray 700FX

If you really want a massive sound go for bg68ti. Nothing sounds quite like them in my opinion! Although quite why hitting sound would be top of your priority on a string I'm not really sure. If you are hitting the shuttle cleanly then you can generate a "crack" sound like the pro's do with pretty much any string, unless it is at a very low tension, >22lbs ish.
As for durability I can't comment, I don't break strings as often as most people on here. New zymax 62's have lasted me 2 months so far, playing about 7 hours a week with feather shuttles. Tension drop isn't that bad either. I don't have the most powerful smash but I do hit the shuttle cleanly most of the time, so no accidental slicing on smashes or clears which really eats into strings. Neither do I mis-hit much either, which is a real string killer!

What is the closest Yonex alternative to the new Zymax Z70?
