    I used to use BG80 for the past 4-5 years, as well as BG65. BG80 is fantastic, but at 29lbs, in some country (like China in winter) it breaks almost within hours after i string it. Also, BG80 at high tension does not hold tension for long (my average is about 2 weeks max) after that, my 29lbs felt like 27lbs or less.
    BG65, on the other hand is long lasting and cheap. But in terms of repulsion and performance it is so-so.
    That is until i tried BG65 Power on my own. It has identical, if not better performance than BG80 (to me) and also it holds the tension much longer than BG80.

    Note: My reference is based on BG65 Power at 29lbs, and also 28 lbs.

    tckang, Have you ever tried BG85? It's hopeless in cold weather, it was very cold here earlier this winter, and one of the places I play at is particularly cold, the string breaks very quickly in the cold. It isn't even sold here in France, I found it in Thailand.

    I find it much much better than BG80. I'm really not impressed by BG80 at all. It works, and it doesn't break but there's no finesse and the net touch , well I have to fight to get any real control. I certainly don't find it fantastic.

    I find the 85 a lot more precise, the power is still there, but the net touch is a real delight. Apparently it's the most popular cord in Thailand, and the one that everyone I talked with there recomended.

    Speaking about BG85, I have used it before and find it very weak. From my experience there's a certain property with the BG85 that makes shots feel very different to the other strings. There is this feeling that I tend to be distracted by the sound it produces on impact and thus can not judge properly the amount of strength that should be put into each shot. Smashing is even more hopeless when using BG85; the feel is weird and the string seems to dent inward and repel weakly rather than stay resilient and transfer the wrist flick properly even at high tensions. For net shots and control perhaps BG85 is one of the better strings but that is IMHO the only aspect it seems to work properly

    By the way I'm the one who convinced tckang to try BG65 Power which is my current favourite (have been a BG80 and BG65 avid user myself) and now even he is smitten to it

    Another string I would recommend for use with the Z Slash is NBG98 because of its resilience and relative stiff feel.

    Yes, i'm back in Thailand next week and siince stringing is free there, I've been thinking of changing to NBG98. I'll try it.

    Sound doesn't bother me too much, I'm actually a little deaf so I avoid that problem!

    I think all this about strings, tensions and even racquet choice is very much dependant on the person and how they move, what kind of shots they like using and how they get 'power'; some people are using strong wrists and some using strong abdos. BG85 strung around 25lbs on a Z Slash suits me, but that may not be the case for everyone.

    I think you only really find out by trying them all.
    I'm going to see how my money pans out over the next month or so, if there's a little spare, I might treat myself to a Nanospeed 9900 , just out of curiosity. I hear good things about that racquet.

    You are right, and i would add also by where you are playing (the weather and humidity) and the tension you put. At 29lbs (The tension i used), and the fact that that Beijing humidity is ALWAYS below 25%, BG85 will not last me 5 hours of play. (i have tried it before). Even BG80 like i said earlier, don't last more than 4-5 hour of play.
    So even though BG80 and BG85 are great, for obvious economical reasons, i chose to stay onto BG65, which works out just fine for me and it last me between 2 weeks to 3 weeks. So when Blitzzard recommended BG 65 Power and i can access it easily here in Beijing, i gave it a try and i am happy to say i am very satisfed as it has BG80 characteristics (to some extend better) and it last as long as my BG65.

    My personal experience and i will highly recommend BG65 Power for anyone to give it one try, even once in their lifetime, no harm.

    Default Kenichi Tago

    We'll see Kenichi using the ArcZ in tomorrow's AE final tomorrow. Although, I think LCW should dominate.

    Not at all. BG65 Ti feels slippery and only good for straight power play to me. You would have to import BG65 Power as it is a Japan only string.

    By the way Lin Dan used the BG65 Power for a slight time before switching to Li Ning, circa during AE2009. The sound it produces compared to BG65 and BG65 Ti is totally different.

    Of course I do have an idea; I've been using that string for at least half a year now and still haven't broken any yet, to show you the durability.

    BBE Shop should have it, while I've asked MBS and somehow they just don't. Another good option is Camel Sports, which I believe has the cheapest price of all.
