    Hmm...seems like the packs have been trending as the problematic ones. Why not invest in a reel for the long run db?

    Packs, and yellow packs, especially - something must be happening during the pack-forming stage.

    The problem is that whoever is OEMing for Victor might be doing so for others...

    It has been suggested that the packs were at fault.
    Not too bothered about investing in a reel as there are plenty of strings out there to try, and as I said, having tried the 800 & 880, they were good, so I would go for one of those.

    I've had reels until recently, switched most average customers to 800 so only really needed to keep a few packs for personal use and for the odd mate I string for.

    Latest attempt with yellow vs850 from a pack didn't explode when pulling 27lb crosses, which was nice.

    There were 4 but one needed cutting out

    I've found an advantage to being sub-averagely weak, the string just laughs off my attempts to break it with misshits.

    I forgot how good vs850 sounds. Like Zymax but angrier.

    Yes. VS-850 sounds amazing. I had to play with BG80 in lieu of 850 and despite how good it is it just doesn't play or sound the same as 850 for me. I actually feel less confident using 80

    Walked into that one...

    Regarding "too tight", I always found I had to overshoot by a pound or two and let it "land" on the required tension - I'd do a 32/33 and leave it for a couple of days.

    I think I've missed the landing by a pound or two. I really find this string hard and am nearing the tension I use with zm62.

    I'll go conservative on the next attempt and use it on plastics if too soft.

    I've not used the new VS850 but the old VS850 certainly was not a hard string, in fact, it's almost soft in my opinion. It also stretches a lot, so like Mark I have to add an extra pound or two to get what I want.

    But in the end I got fed up of the tension loss so moved over to NBG99 which I've stuck with since.

    Ime, agree that VS-850 stretches a lot. The tension only held well for the first two wks. Tried 5% pre-stretch n it lost its characteristics...

    Thats y switch to ZM65 now.

    Default Vs-890?

    I was looking through Victor Asia's latest catalogues online and found reference to a VS-890. Couldn't glean much from the (picture of the) packet, but it's a 0.68 and listed as "HARD"...

    ... and "persistent tension". Was somebody listening to us?
