    Lightbulb NBG 95 vs Bg66 vs BG80

    i'm currently using nbg95 but its tension has dropped and i finally managed to break the string and i need to change it.
    been using it for one month . any opinions would be appreciated.
    looking for power and control. durability is not an issue. i usually string @ 26 - 27lbs. plz enlighten me with your extensive knowledge.

    I like bg66 because its good in control, not as slippery at 95 and the repulsion is better as compared to 80. So, what else?

    U have to be an international player to be in 26lbs above. Else, your racket will break pretty quick. Just a small tip. So, be prepare to buy lotsa rackets.

    You're using nbg 95 at 26 to 27lbs and broke your string in a month.
    If you change it to bg66 at the same tension, you are going to break it in a day or few days of play.
    I broke mine in less than 3 hours of play with bg66 at 26 x26 lbs.
    If you are happy with your nbg95, I think it's still the best string for you.
    If not, try bg80, it might lasts you a few weeks.

    nbg 98 not available here.
    bg66 most common string around here.
    i think i'll try it and see how long it resists. i'll also try bg 80 if i can find it as i love the texture.

    Just a question, what if BG 66 was used at tension 20lb, and broke after, 1-2 Month, how long would it last at 24lbs?

    i personally like the bg80 @ 25
    seems to last me forever
    nbg98 @ 24 usually lasts me a few hours, but a VERY powerful string
    i love smashing with nbg, but cost was an issue with me
    alternatively i use bg70pro @ 25 that's sorta like my back-up racket, would hate to lose tension in a back-up racket

    if you have multiples of a racket and replacing strings is not an issue
    go with 3-4 of the same racket with nbg98@ 25
    somewhere down the road, i would recommend looking into getting a drop-weight stringing machine, soo the operating costs for your racket won't ruin your bank

    I don't know how you break NBG98 so fast. My NBG98 last me 2 months at 30lbs. I play 6-10hours a week.

    durability depends on how often you play and how hard you can hit.

    Let me sum it up.
    If you insist that durability is not an issue ---> bg66.
    Price not an issue---> nanogy 98.
    Durability and price are a concern---> bg80
