    Does anyone know where I could get a reel of BLACK VS-850

    Eric doesn't seem to carry black ones, sadly

    Have you tried emailing the Canadian distributor?

    How do the vs-850 fare compared to the nbg99 in terms of power and control?

    I gave the VS850 another go at 30 lb today, and loved it all over again - piano-wire feel and really crunchy hitting sound. Yet again, though, the tension slid off like water down a shiny shovel. I really wish Victor could sort this out, as it's the only fly in an otherwise delightful ointment.

    Ordering some violet BG80, so I'd like the VS850 in some more "amusing" colours as well.

    at around US$4-5 a pop, you can cut and restring it every week!

    I forgot about the price - you get a lot of string (metaphorically) for the money. Sadly, the might of the against the $ is negated by getting the stuff shipped from dollar-country, barring excessive bulk ordering.

    Had I the money (Friday's Euromillions is a possibility, and 126m would come in handy) I would most definitely have a fresh 32 lb VS850 racket every time I took to court.

    Anytime you're bulk ordering VS850 let me know and we can share the shipping

    Do we reckon Victor could be convinced to prestretch VS850 at 35 lb for 24 hrs at the factory before shipping? It might solve everything.

    Mark, have you considered or tried the zm65? Apparently it has excellent tension retention, and feel and repulsion may be comparable to vs850?

    I love vs850 too, but the tension creep is starting to get to me.

    Yup - Z65 went under the microscope very recently. It was, indeed, pretty hard, but was certainly a step below VS850 and the Vectrans. I've been told Z62 at 30 will destroy everything else in terms of feel, but playing with plastics...

    With that stuff at 30lbs and plastics, there'll be no need for cutting - you'll have to restring every week!

    I can't handle ZM62 @ 23lbs, so I doubt 30lbs will be an improvement! I do find tension a bizarre thing though. I can't hack ZM62 @ 23lbs, but I love BG66U @ 26 or 27lbs. VS850 I've only ever tried at 24/25/26lbs and I feel like I could easily go higher without too much issue. I've opted for ZM67 though on all my sample and prototype rackets simply because of its tension holding ability. It was a close run race though vs VS850.

    Default vs850

    i am playing with vs850 and bg80 for a long time i am bit disappointed with vs850 . vs850 is similar to bg80 bit soft.vs850 went dead with in few weeks. still i can get boom in smash but repulsion mid court smash return doesn't go to the back resulting point loss.
    but bg80 still doing pretty good. i never used bg66um personally but i've tried it. but if zy65 is similar i would rather use it cause of the price

    i completely agreed with what everyone says about the tension dropping dramatically, and it's great that it's not that durable for me so i can string it more often and not worry about adjusting to change of tension when i play. the best characteristic that i love about this string is the exterior texture. it feels really rough compare to Yonex strings. please correct me if i'm wrong, but i haven't been able to find a Yonex string that feels as rough to my fingers as the VS-850. somehow i also find it useful that it has a rough exterior when i'm trying to hit a drop shot when i put slice on the shuttle.

    Have you tried BG80?
