Well, for me Zm65 is the only one that really works. 67 loses quite a bit of tension and is pretty dull in feeling, and the 62 is just so fragile it's not practical anymore. The 70 is even thicker than the 67, so it's really not an option for me.
I'd say the white is just a slight bit less rough than the red, which is good for me (used to the BG65Ti) as it means it's slightly more repulsive (strings moving across each other more freely means they can stretch a bit more and thus add more power to your shot ).

After my VS-850 snapped some weeks ago I went for my ZM62. First time. And my intial impressions are overwhelming. My usual string tension is 11Kg, this time I told the stringer to do the ZM62 with 10.5Kg. It's a lot crispier than the VS-850. It's also crispier than ZM65, which is very nice as well.
The sound from ZM62 is very satisfying, as long you're hitting the sweetspot
I hope it doesn't snap in the next 2 / 3 months. I also hope the tension drop is not that bad. It's really thin and if the vertical strings move to the frames (to the left respectively right), you will think that it's just a question of time when you're going to have a long rally with moved strings like this and end up with the snapped strings.
Actually I have to adjust my clears during the warmup since I'm playing it way too far behind the back lines. Probably my new favourite string for my main racket (N55).
Oh, and by the way. It's on par with NBG98 in terms of liveliness. Absolute the opposite of dull. It's lively!
Just my 2 cents to ZM62

Huh? NBG98 isn't lively But good for you to have found your new go-to
09-10-2013, 04:49 AM #1551
It is! For me, at least. NBG98 may have a very slick feel but its responsiveness and feedback is great! The missing slightly gripping structure is the only reason why it is not my go to string.
Whatever, off topic!

Hm. For the diameter, it's not too impressive, the BG66 is certainly more lively. That is not to say it's a bad string, I like to use it myself...if Yonex weren't getting more and more expensive, that is...

I also string at your lowish tension... which can cause the string movement you experience. It'll go away after the string settles after a few hrs play. Meanwhile just straighten them after play before putting them away, to prevent them from settling in the wrong spots.

I have ZM62 red on 5 rackets now @ 24lbs and so far the red hasn't snapped yet. Still loving the control I get from it.

Just got my second racket strung with ZyMax 65 at 30lbs. It's a super light weight racket (6U) with head heavy balance. Previously I had on it BG66 at 26lbs which I thought was a little dull in feeling. I'll put the racket to test tomorrow.

I haven't actually tried the 62s but the 65s have this amazing smash feeling when you hit the sweetspot. It feels a little like the shuttle melts into the string bed... and next thing you now it's bouncing off the floor of your opponents court. The sound it produces in that process is simply orgasmic.
09-10-2013, 03:10 PM #1558
^ Don't know about you but for me with zm62 it's multi orgasmic as I smash and smash repeatedly.
09-10-2013, 04:22 PM #1559
I can't really say which string that I have used has actually given me more power cause I really can't tell how powerful my smashes are. I only know that others that play with me say that I have a powerful smash. However I can say that the ZM62 has been the most repulsive string and the one with the most control for me when it comes to net play and blocks.
The ZM65 was okay but maybe would have performed better for me at 26lbs or more for what I can get now with the ZM62 @ 24lbs.
BG66UM was nice for about 20-30 hours and then all of a sudden it went dull.
BG80P was okay for the first couple of sessions and then felt blah after.
NS880 to me played like the BG66UM but it just sounded odd. I could not tell how hard I was hitting by the sound it made.
VS100 was utter garbage.
VS32 which came factory strung on my JJS was actually spectacular for a relatively unknown string but I cut it off after the first session cause I wanted all my rackets to rock red ZM62.
I would like to try more Yonex string like the Maxima and Sharp but really can't justify the price of Yonex strings.

After two months of using the Zymax 62, I must say I am convinced. Have never ever considered any strings other than Yonex, especially the BG66 but now I am a convert. It has a metallic crisp sound on smashes that just gives you the confidence to keep smashing it even from backcourt position.
Only drawback if you are a stringer is that the threading of the crosses takes a little longer because the strings are rougher and tend not to slide through as easily, but that being said (and maybe just a placebo effect for me) I find that for backcourt clears where the shuttle has snuck pass you and you are taking forehand shot from backcourt behind your body, it seems the strings catch the shuttle a lot better and you are able to clear the shuttle from your backcourt to your opponents backcourt much easier.
Considering the Zymax 65 for longevity purposes but then I suppose it just brings it back to more of the BG66 thickness strings which is then pointless..???

Lol, just some posts above this one I've told you how outstanding ZM62 is. Now my string snapped just after a few sessions.
It was a mishit. It happened when I wanted to push / block shuttle back. It wasn't a hard mishit at all. It was just completely out of the sweetpot. It snapped on lowest oder second lowest cross string.
Well these are my other 2 cents to ZM62 its durability
It happened during a tournament, and my problem is that next weekend is my next tournament and I have to choose a new string and break it in. I doubt the the latter one will be finished before the coming tournament. But probably I will switch back to VS-850, since I snap my strings all 2 - 3 months and I don't have any ZM65 ready.
If I'm going to get my own stringing machine, I'll maybe get a reel of ZM62. But stringing by myself isn't something I'd really like to do often if I'm really going to do this...
09-18-2013, 05:55 AM #1563
Accordaz, it can happen to any string... I broke several zm65 and even several .70 NS30 on two rackets in just few sessions because of mishits. Can you make a conclusion that the string is not durable? I don't really think so...
09-18-2013, 06:34 AM #1564
You're right. This can't be the final conclusion and it was pretty sure not the last time I will have a ZM62 on one of my racket. But since the season has begun now, I prefer to choose the safe way and get a 0.68mm string.
It was a first impression of its durability. And its first impression in this term was bad. The string wasn't that newly strung anymore and the mishit wasn't hard at all.
It's the first string which I've snapped within two weeks. Maybe not a final conclusion as I've said, but surely a first impression.
