It doesn't feel right for me either...
I think I really do like the NBG98 more than the 66UM... But I won't cut them... I've cut too many strings in the name of experimentation...

Ahhh... My best times were with NBG95... I really don't want to go back... Besides... I have a whole reel of NBG98... Just can't justify it anymore :P

U can always sell them , no point playing with something u dun like , just like the Ultimax , it just does not play as well as Maxima , n I really can't tolerate the difference between them , it's way too much for me to accept.

i dont know if anyone here have got the same experience as me.I strung bg66 ultimax on my vt80 (23lbs) which i felt the best string evet, But the next time i strung again, same machine, person and same lbs, it turn outTotally different feeling.. It feels even worst than bg65.For malaysia only. The only diff is that the first string was SUNRISE distributor and 2nd string didnt have sunrise stricker on it. But both are genuine from yonex.A pro-shop in subang jaya told me that diff manufacturer. Items from Sunrise are from japan and there are manufacturer in taiwan as well.Both are genuine but might have a vary feelings. Price of course slightly lower.Any comment bro?

I ever used BG 66 Ultimax SP 26 lbs in Armortec 600.
Repulsion is greater than BG 66.Control and hitting sound is a better than BG 66.
I didn't break it (fortunately) but after 2 months use,the string feel is really bad.
The string feels dead and numb.

i support bcoz i am the victim as well...bg66UM do not seem consistent...
i am very particular when string gives out low hitting sound...
i found these 0.65mm string can project high hitting sound for tension above 25lbs...
i dont recon string in high tension bcoz ur string would not lively but just pure dead string which over streched to limits.
i found ppl use high tension purely for ego purposes...of course we dont compare to sponsors players coz they can afford to change string every day .....
i now moving to bg66 sharp, i regain my 1st love and never moved back...
tension 22-23lbs is enough to project high hitting sound with this string...go and try them out...

to me, after 2 weeks the tension starts dropping and the feeling is draining away...
perhaps thats what happened to you...
66UM is a very good string, thin yet durable, but just couldnt maintain its tension long enough...

As BG-66 Sharp has already discontinued in Japan, and whats left in the market are left over stocks.
You either hope Sunrise came out with their SP version or try for another alternatives now.
That is what I am trying now as my favourite was BG-66 Sharp as well....

As usual, YMMV.
I've switched almost entirely to the BG66UM since Feb. So far, I have 2 TC700 @27lbs (late Feb), 1 mx80 @27lbs (mid Mar), and 1 US700 @29lbs (May). The only other racket is another trusty tc700 with BG66M again @27lbs (mid Mar). The string on the mx80 finally snapped due to a mishit just 2+weeks back giving it a service life of over 4 months. The two tc700 are still going strong mainly because I alternate between them. The 66M is reserved for very serious games and competitions.
While there is definitely some tension drop in the first month of stringing, I do not feel the drop is that significant with the 66UM. BG80 has a more significant fall in tension (from memory) and even then, not that bad. For the price of the string (same as BG80 here), the usability and durability of the 66UM works out very well for me.
btw, the 66um are all strung using ECP albeit by different stringers with their own strings in namely, Singapore (sgbad), Malaysia (Racketworld) and Taiwan (Song Shan). All are very experience stringers I used before except Racketworld who turned out to be great too.
