Hey, I'm currently using Yonex BG66 Ultimax, the sound is produce from the smash is sharp, anyone has recommendation on strings that could produce explosive sound? I'm changing to Li-Ning string soon, anyone has any recommendation? Please Advice.

For Li Ning String:
I would recommend NS 70 & NS 95, both have good replusion and control: 9/10

@Ferrerkiko: What about AP101N & AP90? Are both good? I not really into the durability, just wanna make sure the string is good. Please Advice.

Have you tried out AP101N & AP90? How is it? Nice? I'm changing to either one of them too.

Li Ning string
Li ning AP 90 is also good , use by china team, but is not selling in Malaysia & Singapore.
So AP 90, is also good to use.

As far as I can tell, the most popular Li Ning string used by the LN sponsored Chinese National players now use NS70, NS30 and NS95.
The cost of one pack of NS70 is very similar to BG80 while NS95 costs similar to BG80P. NS30 is similarly priced as BG65. A review here.

Having further tested the strings, I am finding the following observations:
NS-30 is actually thinner than the specified 0.70mm diameter. It could be because it really measures 0.70mm untensioned which in other words if measured tensioned (ala Yonex strings) then it would most likely measure 0.67mm similar to BG85 or AP90. In my experience with it the string is very similar to BG85 but with the 'oomph' of BG80. Good in control and power with a sharp and crispy impact feel, more so then specified on the package. The yellow version feels more explosive on impact compared to the white version. It is also used by most of the national Chinese players (whom you can see using a yellow string such as Lin Dan, Chen Long, Xu Chen etc.)
Pretty cheap also considering the performance. It also reminds me of BG66Sharp at almost half of the price now more than NS-70
NS-70 yellow requires both manual and electronic pre-stretch if you want it to hold it's tension for good due to the physically very slightly thicker diameter compared to the white version. Unlike NS-30, this string feels thicker than the specified 0.68mm and in my experience is more 0.69mm in diameter. Otherwise it has a big nice 'oomph' on impact feel even though it does not feel as crispy as NS-30 at any tension due to the thickness. It feels to me that it has more maximum capable power than NS-30 while having on par repulsion.
The white NS-70 feels slightly more crispy than the yellow and is probably similar to NBG99 while costing lower at BG80 price while having similar and almost better durability.

Hi, I just wanna clear some doubts. Strung my racket with 66um with 25.5lbs for about 7weeks ago but tension has drop since the 3rd week. Now it feels dam crappy. Just wanna know whether can I string it with AP62+ with 24x26 with 4 knots? Just wanna know whether this is possible coz I don't wanna make the tension drop so fast. Some idea plz n Tq : )

Ordered some NS30 for a tournament next week - review to follow.

Revelation prototype (full woven) - 31 lb ECP w/ hand prestretch.
Been waiting a while for this one - reputed to be "iron hard". Surface is similar to BG65Ti, but less pliant and greasy - looks to be a pretty stiff coating. I could only get it in blue, but it's a nice blue. Bit expensive over here, though, and I can't seem to find it on the reel.
Gave me almost nothing on the hand prestretch, the least amount of creep I have ever seen in a badminton string. The WISE reached the target tension noticeably quicker as well. Colour me impressed.
Power - 8/10
Hits very well off the centre of the bed, on par with BG65Ti. The sound is very high and compact for a 0.70 as well - I'm also testing some 0.69 Gosen at 31, and the Li Ning sounds 3 lb tighter at least.
It is noticeably more work than 65Ti, though, and less tolerant of slower swings.
Feel - 9/10
Exactly what I was hoping for: absolutely electric. My very first hit made me stop and take stock - I thought I'd picked up a BG80 racket by accident. I'm used to 0.70 strings being muted, or dead, but this stuff... ye gods. It felt like cherry bombs going off in my hand.
Control - 9/10
The bed is like a frying pan when you need it to be. Smash blocks come off it like they would off a brick wall. Placement is very good indeed - a tight bed combined with reasonable slice potential (and a distinct lack of Ti grease) means the shuttle will go where you want it.
Tension holding - 8/10
Sound barely dropped all night. I was expecting this given how it behaved during stringing.
Can't comment on durability after one session, and I usually end up cutting my strings to make way for the next test set, but at 0.70 I'm not worried about it going any time soon.
The only fly in the ointment is the price - came in at about £6.50 after shipping in UK, and I could only find it in one place. If anybody has a line on reels, I would be happy to hear about it, but six-fifty a set is way too rich compared to Yonex stuff.
An excellent string for the high-tension "feel" player, IMHO.
01-16-2013, 06:51 PM #149
The places I've looked Yonex stuff seems to be about that price as well
Obviously looking in the wrong places, unless you are working it out based off reel price.
I might be interested in the NS30 if someone knows a place to get reels at a decent price.
01-19-2013, 05:57 AM #150
Can't even get reels directly from Li-Ning UK. I knew they weren't on the site, but I emailed them and they can't supply them apparently.

Blitzzards since you are also a N90 user, what is you current favorite string setup?
(I am formaly used NBG 98, BG 80 P but recently they break too fast, 1-3 sessions and they are gone, so i have to use bg 65 and nbg 95, 99 but i am not completely satisfied with them.. so i am looking for something new which gives me good power but also supports my net play.)

Well, interestingly you've considered NS-70 as very similar to BG66S in your first review. In this second review you think NS-30 is very similar to BG66S. What now? Are NS-30 and NS-70 pretty similar or why do they both remember you of BG66S?
Unfortunately I don't know how BG66S feels. But I'd say VS850 is the crispiest string in the market. Which string of Li-Ning would you describe as crispiest string?
In the first review you described both strings as very repulsive.
How do you know if they (LD, CL, XC) are using NS-30? It could be NS-70 or NS-95 as well? Or any other string from another brand? :P
And the last question: From where did you get the strings?
stringersworld.co.uk unfortunately does not have any yellow strings
EDIT: Oh now... You've written that NS-70 seems to have the same high tension loss like the VS850?
