Yonex String Specifications
These days I am using Nanogy 98 and BG 66 Maxima. I created this document help myself picking the right string.
Please feel free to fix any error or missing info here. Edit Document. As I will be checking the google doc link and if there is any new update I will update this post.

Very nice chart. Although i really wonder if the difference between say a 8 to 10 , is the same as 6 to 8.
Another thing that isn't included in the yonex rating is tension loss over time which i think makes a pretty big difference in choice of strings.
But anyway thanks for compiling this chart.

very difficult/impossible to calculate loss of tension over time, I asked the same question when I first started stringing a few years ago, am surprised the manufacturers don't supply the information for stringers.

where are the ppl getting the "feel" rating from ?

I have a packet of bg66 Maxima bought recently, the durability is 6 not 7 . not sure if it has been changed since the release.

anyone who used bg66 utimax can plz comment on this string to compare other bg66 strings?
btw, wat the best optimum tension recommended for bg66 utimax?

While most of the specs look right, I wonder if there are some inherent biases built into this...personally, I think bg80 should be ranked higher...but I guess personal preferences subside within me

I just bought Apacs Feather Light 200 strung with BG66 at 25lbs. The racket is very light and easy to control but lack of power to clear shot from rear court. What the best string for the racket and should I lower the string tension? Below is the racket specs.
APACS Feather Weight 200 Specifications :
Frame Meterial: Hi Modulus Graphite + High Speed Frame + CNT
Shaft Material: Hi Modulus Graphite + CNT
Weight: 69 +/- 1g (7U-G2)
Max Tension: 30lbs
Balance: 285 +/- 3mm

arent the BG80s near the top of the range? On dinkalots review theyre much better

I have added in the rating "Resilience" to describe the feel of shuttle impact on the string bed which can range from soft to stiff from the stretchability of the string. I have also revised the "Feel" rating to describe the impact feedback as blunt or sharp due to the various coating or thickness of the string.
Finally the overall formula has been revised to include more factors (and at least BG80 is no longer ranked at the bottom now).
Another thing to note is that the most recent durability ratings of BG65 and BG65 Power have both increased to a solid "10", as according to the new Yonex 2011 Catalogue.
