    After playing 2 times this week with the BG66UM on my NS8000 @ 24 lbs. My conclusion is it has better moderation in control and power at the same time. I used to use BG80 and I can say the feel on the BG66UM has more finesse to it.

    I agree completely. The way it transitions from the power to the touch game is a big reason why I use it.

    My stringer mentioned the retention will be rather low. So I am expecting that dull feel will kick after 5 - 7 times of play.

    Depends on how hard you go. I usually only play 2x3hr sessions a week, so I usually restring every 6 weeks I'd guess. If you're a pro, I could see the string only lasting one match. I guess your experience will be somewhere inbetween

    It's the price you pay for perfection

    I've been recently doing 6 days week about 2 hrs each day. It's feeling real lacking after 1 month.

    Going to try 80P or 66Sharp if i can find it next

    I had BG80P before on my NS8000. I can truly say the feel just doesn't compare to BG66UM. But something has to give to have so much fun.

    Cheers for your comments, I've only had 66UM so wanted to re-string when they started to feel different, which is now (5-6weeks now)
    I think I'll replace the ZF2 with 80P or 66Max/Sharp @26 and the ARC11 with NBG98 @ 24

    BG80P retains tension much better than 66UM. Also quite a diff feel too. 66UM feels quite a bit softer in comparison. However soft <> dull, which is what the NBG95 n 99 feels like.
    80P just feels harder as if I am a more angry person when I play, haha.
    Either one is my goto string. Leaning towards 80P as the difference in feel new vs old not as dramatic as 66UM.
    Durability wise, both sucks....

    Mate had 66UM on 3U ZSP @ 26, broke after 3-4 days, got it restrung at 26 again, snapped after 10 minutes.
    Different mate had 80P on ZF2 @ 26, used it for about 3 weeks, broke on a drop supposedly...?!?! yet to be restrung

    Ive had 66UM on ZF2 @ 26, probably actually 26 for 1-2 weeks max, since then prolly <24lb tbh, now it feels even looser than my ARC11 @ 22...

    The broad consent seems to be that BG 66 UM is the best string ever, despite it's durability problem.

    I've ordered 10 m for testing it and can't wait to try it and see if I like it more than BG 80.

    Its actually the drop in tension that I am moving away from 66UM. 80P retains tension much better.
    For fresh strung strings, nothing touches 66UM.

    Since I got my own stringing machine that's not much of a problem for me... If I like it more than BG 80, I will definitely switch to UM.
