Thread: Li Ning Strings

You can check here on what I found about LD's racquet string. From my observation CL and XC also seem to be using the same string with the same characteristics.

Juz strung my MX80 with NS-30 Yellow @ 26/28. Will give it a go at tmrw game and see how it fairs. My strings with Li-Ning by far are AP62 and AP62+ only. Love the overall feeling but the downside - breaks easily even for AP62+ hope NS-30 can perform better in play and durability

The NS30 has already won the tension loss battle - I may be bumping my rating up to 9/10 after tomorrow because the note just refuses to drop.
Not to mention the awesome impact feel that even Mark is surprised at.

If the LN NS30 is that string I've been searching for, then I'll give it a go. As a matter of interest, where are LN strings made?
I've compared BG80 with VS850 back to back, and find that whilst they have similar characteristics, BG80 feels harder and has less feel when compared to VS850. Never tried BG80P, might be closer to VS850? Anyone?

If you have time, I am (and pretty sure some members more) interested how the NS30 performs compared to THE Victor string VS-850 only. What does it / is better than the VS-850? And would you call it as a "better VS-850 by LN"?
The comparison is especially interesting because NS30 is 0.70 and VS850 0.68.

On balance, I would take NS30 over VS850 - the tension holding is in a different galaxy, and the durability should be better as well.
As a matter of interest, where are LN strings made?

Mark, as a long time VS850, you'd therefore recommend me switching (or at least trying) the NS30?
You and I usually have similar string preferences anyway...

Mark or Blitzzard, there are a lot of VS850 lovers. Will there ever be a VS850 vs NS30 comparison review made by you?
Whatever, I'd like to get NS30 in yellow. Is there any NS30 in yellow available from a online seller like stringersworld.com?

Winston tells me he's now carrying NS-30... and NS-50, which I'll be testing shortly - apparently it's Li ning's new factory string for their top-end rackets.

Isn't BG85 like .67 thick? That would make it a thin gauge imop But good to hear the NS-30 will be available easily now, that way I can sneak in a few packs for testing purposes on my next order. Although I'll have to decide which string I wanna play on the next 22 rackets first....as that'll be the reason to order from him in the first place

@blitzzards: You have also considered NS95 as one of the best string out of your recent tested strings in post here.
On the other hand you say NS30 is "on par" to NS70 and NS95. If you would get sponsored by LN. Would you choose NS30 or NS95? I actually don't need to restring that often (most rackets strung at ~25lbs), so budget is in this regard not an issue.
I'm asking because NS95 is much more expensive, and the stats are "better" according the official informations:
NS 30 (0.70mm) Durability 8, replusion 7, Control 6 , Hitting sound 8 , Tension 7
NS 50 (0.70mm) Durabiity 9, replusion 8 , Control 6 , Hitting sound 7 , Tension 10
NS 70 (0.68mm) Durabiity 7, replusion 9 , Control 9 , Hitting sound 8 , Tension 7
NS 95 (0.70mm) Durabiity 9, replusion 9 , Control 9 , Hitting sound 8 , Tension 7
How would you rate them?
Most important for me is the "feedback" / repulsion. Due the fact I don't let my rackets string at a very high tension, the durability just needs to be okay. Just better than VS-850 So wouldn't you choose NS95 too, in my case?

Why would you even choose an 0.70 at 25lbs?
