Thread: Yonex BG 66 Ultimax

It's tension and lbs so it's obvious. Anyone change back to NBG 98 or other strings after using BG66 Ultimax for around 6 months ? I like players with long term testing not just honeymoon time test since it's too short. Yes I can break the string if smashing alot but the games dictating that. It's not just for breaking strings. Thanks for the input.
and about tension over 24 lbs, just increase 1 lbs at time for me until the equilibrium point, not trying to be macho, tough guy or anything. It's the same approach for my tennis string tension.

The string feels dead after a couple of games even if it did not break, i guss the coating and etc just wears off too fast! i strung at 25-26lbs

but after a week or two, the feel of the string becomes dull and dead. the crispiness is gone.
next time i will increase the initial tension by 2lbs to see if that makes it better.

anyone else with similar experience with bg66um?

same here... restring after 2 weeks

bg66UM is good for 2 weeks only later its loss its tension badly
i see it, i feel it, i move away from it
who cares about durability if string in such bad shape...no much fun to enjoy from it anymore..
for me bg66UM is a 2 week string even it not break!
kindly share with me on your exp...maybe only happen here...
thats why i follow LCW moving to old string instead...
why wanna change to new string when the old string is better...

Been using the BG66UM on Arcsaber Zslash with 24lbs for more than 3 months (once a week) now. I really love it at first. Now I'm not sure if I'm also experiencing the same way with you all about this string that looses tension quickly. But I feel differently now compared 2 months ago of using it. I feel that my clears are difficult to land at the back of the court. My smashes are still quick but feels different but I really can't pinpoint what's wrong.
My question... how would you know if its time to replace the string aside from just of feeling? (giving a doubt... because maybe it's me or some other else). Or am I really hitting the symptoms of loosing tension?

I noticed the same thing with BG-66UM.. luckily I have no choice but to replace it after a week. I find that a lot of strings play poorly once you see signs of fraying -- some strings last a hell of a long time despite the fraying while others like 66 pop very soon.

Is BG80 a recommended string to replace BG66UM?

What is the string's specifications for max tension? All strings should have max tension stated on their packaging. Most high tech strings are only up to 22-23lbs, checked out at gosen's catalog. Please confirm. Any string, being overstreched, will lose/break their molecular structure. Thus, dead strings in a couple of hours play. Please sifu2 confirm on my analysis

yeah i also think that the string 'dies' after a week or two. nonetheless i still feel that it feels really great when it was freshly strung (y)
10-10-2011, 08:35 AM #135
