    Victor VS-850 is a good choice, it is quite similar to BG80, and for the first couple of games it is probably better (subjective) than BG80, but after that it loses tension quicker than BG80, (but not as much as BG65) but you can always cut and restring.

    if it is similar to BG80, then why use it instead of BG80? BG80 can be found in Asia for really really cheap.

    because for the first couple of games, IMO it feels better and sharper, and has slightly better replulsion. But then it loses tension.

    upon closer inspection of the Spira21. i did noticed that the top grommets (A1-A5) are pretty pointy, stiff and sharp. maybe that contribute to the ridiculous breakage that i am seeing. usually the string can tolerate a couple of mishits, but this time it is not very forgiving at all. i will try to replace or expand those grommets and see how it goes.

    decision time.

    should i string the Spira21 (YET AGAIN ) this time with ZM67@27lbs instead? i am sick of breaking strings.

    or should i keep trying with the ZM62. it is getting expensive...

    i will also flare out the top grommets a bit to make it less sharp.

    Have you ever considered that maybe the snapping strings of yours weren't partially due to miss-hit or sharp gormets on the racket but rather the factor quality of the string itself? maybe it's time you should think of re-string with another brand and see how it goes.

    Don't give up on Spira21 yet because you spent triple bucks for the string that snapped very occasionally. After all, you only tried ZM string and no others yet.

    Try the VS-850 if you prefer .68 strings (from all accounts a better string than the BG80), or, if you like thin strings, I really can't say say anything bad about BG66M. Granted I only have it at 25lbs, but it has great repulsion, a really nice feel, and after a couple of months solid use on all my rackets seems just as durable as anything else.

    i forgot where i have mentioned.

    ZM62 is the best feeling string that i have ever tried. i have used it in other rackets and while they don't last months, they last weeks. which is reasonable and understood for going for such thin strings.

    but snapping with minutes is something that is not understood other than blaming the mishits.

    ZM62. yes. 0.62mm thickness. the thinnest badminton string but also offers the best feel.

    well, good news, the string didn't break.

    i did play with it for a little while. but i need more time to get a better feel of the racket for a fair review.

    I agree with LD rules. The SW35 is a awesome singles racket whereas the BS10 is more for doubles. I have both of them in 3U and I use both for doubles. I find the BS10 the perfect racket. Really fast and powerful. The SW35 is not as fast as the BS10 but fast enough. Iíve had a few Arc10. The BS10 is on another level compared to BS10
