Sorry bro, i only support original items. Sorry for not mentioning earlier, in Kota Kinabalu there are limited badminton shops, so pretty much we can see if they bring original or fake items, the reason why its RM30 is cause i string there every once a month and good rappot from the owner, cheers!

However the BG 66UM that I also bought from online store, CH version is lasting, just that I have not using this string before, so don't know the feel and cannot compare to the sp version.

I feel Bg66um and ng98 very slips and hard to smash compare to thick string like BG80P.
Yes, both are very repulsive and hard to control at net.
Let me know if you share the same view.

I had two RKEP Pro9000 strung with 66um when buying from Eric. Wow, were they amazing. After getting used to the new string and racket, my smashes sounded like thunder. The best player in my club were commenting how hard and loud they were. I had so much fun smashing after the session my hand was still "ringing" from the impact. Note I have only used Ashaway 70, BG65, BG70, VS850 before.
That lasted about 2 nights. Keen to repeat the earlier performances, I used the same racket with same grip on the same court, even with the same doubles partner! But the power is gone, the smashs sounds like hollow bamboo. And I thought I was just being inconsistent with my technique until I saw this thread. Safe say that the string has outlived its usefulness and need to be cut. The string on my other Pro9000 is lasting longer but that is because I did not use that racket during a smashing frenzy.
This is the best string I have used for about 4 hours but I cannot afford to restring all the time. Looks like that I am going back to my BG-70s.

no, after 10 hours of intense play the BG66um performs worse than BG70 that has been strung for a year! It just goes worse and worse, the shuttle does not bounce off it as quickly, increasing your errors on court. The dead fish metaphor is very apt. I would say if you want to smash it is not useable. They are getting cut on my racket for sure.
I have not used the BG65ti before so I cannot tell you.

BG66Ultimax is the ultimate TOURNAMENT string ... after EACH MATCH, change in order to maintain effectiveness ... best if you are sponsored by Yonex (free) or seriously loaded to afford it regularly ...
Almost everyone that I know who has tried it will testify that it is the BEST STRING they have ever played with for those few hours ....

I restring my racket with BG85 since Bg80 and Bg80P out of stock.
BG85 vs BG66UM.
Clear (back to back): BG66um more power.
Defense: BG66um, thanks to it repulsive and good if you feel tire and lazy.
Smash: BG85 much better. I have no idea why, I can't smash properly with 66um. It just fly straight and hard to go deep. May be I like thick string.
Sound: I really like Bg80p, then Bg85. 66um less boom for me.
Control at net or net kill: Bg85. 66um too repulsive and too high.
All strung with 26 lbs.

BG66U is wonderful. and now that i've read this who thread from the first post to the last, i know that it's only best when it's fresh. ironically, i strung a bunch of my rackets with this string and only played with those rackets the first few hours with this string, no wonder all the rackets felt good hitting i usually cut my string after a month and since i can string a racket whenever i feel like, i can always try out a string last minute.
