    Yeah, I want to learn how to, but I don't think I could start stringing straight away at 28lbs. it is great though at that tension, it really complements the SW35.

    Hrm, okay I have a packet of blue VS850, but I don't really want to put blue on any of my new acquisitions. What does everyone think is the next best colour?

    People seem to like the VS850 at about 28lbs, which is 2lbs higher than I normally like (24 x 26lbs)......should I just go for it?

    Nah, BS12 is up for sale. I love the MX80 too much so I'm getting two.

    Use this string once before. Really good feel. But the tension drop very fast. Am i right?? Now using Bg80, tension hold longer then VS850 but the feeling is too hard compared with the victor string. Thinking to change back to VS850 but is too expensive keep on changing it due to the tension lost.

    Found it depends on who strings it. It does lose tension more than other strings, but it's an easy fix - just string 1 pound higher.

    I still think it's the best 0.68 string out there.

    i strung a few test rackets with VS850 @ 28.5lbs the past weekend and the initial feeling on the first day of hitting is very nice. solid, crisp, repulsive. just awesome string. not sure how it will hold up to tension loss compared to 29.5lbs. will report back.

    Thanx to kwun who got me curious about this string.

    I've been trying out this string on my MX80 for the past week, strung at 24 lbs because I play plastic Mavis 2000's.

    Initial stringbed frequency is 1050 Hz, now dropping to 1030 Hz after about 6 hrs of intense md.

    Hopefully it won't drop much further, as I manually prestretched it for about 1-2 minutes on the staircase spindle. Managed to apply enough tension to remove some string creep and lengthened a 10 m string by about 8 inches.

    Compared to my previous Zymax 67 at the same tension, this gives much better feel for net play and touch shot. The rougher surface prevents the strings from sliding around (Zymax is notorious for this) and also allows me to impart spin better on slices. Power seems about the same. Durability and tension retention remains to be seen, but I have a feeling it won't outperform Zymax here.

    I was also surprised to find that it weighs slightly less than Zymax 67, considering that it is slightly thicker. My racket total weight dropped by 0.3g and became slightly head lighter by 2mm.

    All in all, very happy with it. If durability and tension retention is acceptable, it'll be my goto string!

    i now buy VS850 by the reel.

    and i am almost done with the reel also.

    for someone who cares about feel, this is the best string at the moment. everyone who tried it liked it.

    there are some other strings that excel in some categories, some are more durable, some are more powerful, some sounds better, but none can beat the feel of VS850. and the VS850 isn't bad on power nor durability either.

    We'll see what BG80 Power has to say about that. I agree VS850 does have the best feel atm, but that tension loss...

    I'm stringing all my rackets with the new ZM67 when I get back from holiday, but if that doesn't rock my world I'm going to try VS850 at 2lbs higher than I normally would and just let it drop. I have a feeling that higher tensions will experience less drop than lower tensions.

    This string drives me nuts! It's excellent in every single way, but then just as the racket and string are feeling superb... Pop it goes right in the centre.

    It's a strange string, it's great for the first 5hrs. Then it goes away a bit. Then after say 15hrs it comes back to life again, at this point you know it's going to pop soon... And then just as it's back in it's prime, pop.

    I love the Blue and Black, still to try yellow but have some packets of it. All my rackets strings have gone now

    Out of interest Kwun, it's possible to buy Black/Blue VS850 reels ? Care to tell me the price ? I love the string, but it doesn't like high tension for me

    I like VS850 when freshly strung. It has the control of BG66, power, hardness and sound of BG80. I feel it is even better than BG66,80 and 85. But the tension drops real quickly, perhaps as much as 2LB in 2 weeks, done by various stringers and even myself, and the good qualities are all lost by then. This aspect is much inferior to the Yonex peers. Furthermore it only has the frail durability of BG66 imho. You can see from the Korean players on tv too, i presume most of them are using VS850 and they snap often. But of course they wont really mind because a freshly strung VS850 is real good and they do not have to fret over replacements.
