    Hey guys,

    I have the opportunity to string with either a Zymax 65 or BG 66UM at 24x26. I currently play with plastics. Which would be a better choice? I have heard that ZM65 has more durability.

    Thanks for your time.

    Are zymax considered a hard string? I much prefer pg65 and micropower at the moment, which I believe are soft.

    Both are medium feel. But zm65 will last longer with plastics.

    Hey guys,

    In a few days I will be a stringer. Firstly I will only string my own rackets. But if I will string for some club mates I need a different string. 99% want a durable string and don't care much about performance. I can get the Zymax line at a decent price. 99% of them use Bg65. I want to offer the Zymax 67 or 70. I have only limited experiences with the 67 (3 years ago) and none with the 70. I want a string which don't snap much faster than the BG65 but performs better. What should I choose?

    Feather. Nothing else. 99% of them use 20-24lbs tension. Not more. A mate and I use tension beyond that, but most don't want more and are used to this lowish tension. So I would get for the mates a string which not must fit my liking but should not play like crap. Maximum a .70 but not thinner than .67 because some are really bad mishitter.

    ^ Then at those low tensions, you should try ZM62, 65, 67. But not 70... it's soooo dull and numb.

    Maybe ZM65. I've only tried one of these 4, but I'm pretty sure that the 65 has a bit more durability than the 62 from what I've heard. Since his club members want more durability, even at expense of performance.

    Since the string tensions are so low, there will be little loss in the durability factor in going to ZM65. A much better feeling string than ZM67.

    Well, my dilemma is if I string with ZM65 some will break it faster than her BG65, they will say: "you are a bad stringer because it not lasted 9-12 months". If I choose a too think or numb string they will say:"your stringing job is rubbish, I have no feeling".
    I'm not the guy who break strings often but some people are cursed and break solid combinations in a few weeks.

    ^ you'll have to be wise as to whom to recommend what...

    for bg65 users who mishit lots, zm67

    for bg65 users who're good and appreciate better touch and repulsion over durability, zm65

    for you and your mate, you *must* try zm62 at least once!

    Quite honestly, don't string for people who expect strings to last 9-12 months. Let them go to sport shops and pay nearly 3x the price of a quality stringer who does rackets for people at the club. Funnily enough some of the most annoying customers are the ones who do not even play at a decent level, but seem to have the most to say about quality of stringing and types of strings etc....

    If you know that you do a good job, just let them know that and also the pro's and con's of the different strings you are offering. Tell them exactly what to expect by way of feel and also longevity of the strings.

    I've done that with quite a few people at the club and have converted them to the ZM62.... even though longevity is not there, they keep coming back asking for the ZM62 after they have used it once... Its all about setting expectations and also letting them feel what a good set of strings are all about

    ZM62... a good drug to be addicted to. Keeps both the user and stringer happy...

    I string with both those and like them both. That is also my go-to tension set-up.

    No compromise, 66UM is the winner.

    However, it does lose tension pretty fast, so if you don't like the idea of restringing every month (or less, or more...depends on you) then go ZM65.

    Oh, and stop playing plastics.

    I tried ZM62 because of you and I will never look back. This one reason why I will buy a stringing machine.

    Yes, these players care only about the money. Buying cheapest shuttles, cheapest shoes, cheapest rackets and cheapest string but buy a big brand new car every few years.

    Yes, you are right. But if you are the only stringer at the club and offer at a decent price, people will come. I would like to skip some strange people but there is a pressure to do it.

    ZM62 is IMO one of the best performing strings. Especially at 27/29 lbs.
