It's taken a long time to convince me to move away from Yonex strings (>20 yrs). I've been a massive fan of Yonex strings until very recently when I heard about the Zymax range and coupled with the price hike of Yonex strings I started to look into alternatives.
I've always been aware of the Ashaway strings and how good some say they are, but it's probably this thread that has tipped me over to the dark side and I've just placed an order for the following.
3 x ZM62 White
3 x ZM65 White
2 x ZM67 White
Some of you probably already know, I'm not a fan of the ArcSaber 10, but a massive fan of the 8DX. I have BG80 on the AS10 and BG65ti on the AS8DX all at 26/27lb.
I'm going to restring my AS10 and my questions are:
Which ZM string should I use for the AS10 and what tension should I apply to mimic 26/27lb?
This will be the first time I have used any string other than yonex so hopefully it will be a good experience!

I've tried the ZM67 Red and Green version... Didn't like it at all
Tried in on my N90 (Red) and ZForce (Green)... Both didn't give me the feel I got using BG80P

I have about 13pcs ZM62 red and 4pcs ZM67 red excess to my requirement, which I would like to dispose of.

But for me, Zymax 62>Zymax 65>Zymax 67>Zymax 70 for an arcsaber 10 at your 26/27lbs tension.
But if stringing at high tensions, try Zymax 62 and Zymax 70. The higher you go, the better the 70 gets as with all thick strings.

Thanks guys, I'll try the ZM62 but what tension do I need to apply to the mains and cross to get 27lb?
I read earlier in the thread that some suggested to lower by 1-2lb, will I need to with the new 62 on an Arc10?

Thanks guys, strung my Arc10 with ZM62 at 25/27 last night.
Firstly, I'd just like to say how easy it was to string the 62, a joy to string, silky smooth and compliant. I have to say I made a mess of the first packet of 62 I opened. There are 2 cable ties on the string but they are very very tight, so tight that I nicked the string with my cutter which pretty much rendered it useless even before stringing! Luckily I had two packets. How do you guys cut the cable tie? I've nicked strings on a few occasions before even when keeping the cutter flat against the strings, so I just unreel the whole coil now.
Anyway, haven't had the chance to test it out properly, but hitting a few shuttles at home and I can already tell the differences (I have another brand new Arc10 with BG80 at 25/27 to compare against). The sound it makes is quite distinctive and, addictive! Almost like music to my ears!
The first thing I noticed was how it has changed the way the racquet plays. Compared with BG80, the sweetspot with the ZM62 is notably higher and for some bizarre reason, felt like it was a little larger (can't be sure of this as I've not fully tested it out). I can't figure out why, it may be a placebo effect but as this was the main reason I disliked the ARC10, I am starting to warm to it with ZM62.
I tried a few flick serves and there seemed to be a drop in power though. BG80 still feels more powerful in my opinion. In terms of control, ZM62 edges it. I can imagine how well ZM62 would play in fast drives rallies and net shots.
I'll wait until I play a proper session with it to comment more.

Why weren't you going for ZM65? A string between ZM62 and ZM67.
I've also got an Arc10, that's why I'm asking like that.
I think you have some midlong-time-experiences now, don't you? What are the very main differences between the three ZM-strings?

Why did I go for the 62 and not the 65? I bought all three that you mentioned, but the one that is highly recommended by nearly all Zymax users is the 62. I will certainly try the 65 and 67 later, perhaps on my 8DX which currently has BG65Ti. I've always preferred medium gauge strings but will see how I get along with the 62.
I've not had the chance to try the Arc10 with the 62 yet, had to postpone playing as I needed to look after my baby son. But should be able to play sometime this week if all goes to plan. Will report back!

Thanks for answering Well, it seems that sooner or later I have to test this string out
Unless you're telling me that ZyMax65 perform better than ZyMax62 in all terms
