    hey madbad...nice to see it last that long . BTW have you used zm62 before? Can you compare with zm65 re power, repulsion, touch, feel, durability, etc?

    89 g!! That's at the high end of 3Us. You should be able to generate lots of power with this weight. What tension do you use?

    Please consider BS LYD, you wont regret it. Simply the best racket so far for me; I owned MX80, MX60 and some other rackets

    I used to use that too, but have recently discovered Zymax 62 and 65. I would highly recommend 62 at same tension ... you'll be more than pleasantly surprised by the power and touch from it. Only downside is mishits will break it easily. If so then get the 65. I have 62 @ 25 lbs and its miles better than vs850.

    I have couple 65 and 67 on hand, will try it after VS-850...though I do get a lot of miss hits on this PPRO compare to my other rackets. Thanks

    Yeah go with the 65 if you already have it. Takes some time to adapt to P Pro as it swings quite fast . I'd say faster than an equally spec MX series.

    I'm kinda tentative to get into the ZM-62 knowing by string breakage record with thinner strings. However since I am going to need to restock on strings soon, I may give it a try. I think as an every day string, the ZM-65 does a fine job. TTYS

    VS-850 is a really nice string but as everyone knows, it loses its tension pretty quickly. I had a big problem with breakage with this string. I didn't find it forgiving on mishits.

    As far as generating power, you might find you need to readjust your swing to get the most from the MX80. If you have a more "arm" type swing, it's not going to get you the most out of this racket.

    would you go 1-2 lbs. lower in tension with a thinner string like 62?

    usually yes... but strange thing about p pro is that the sweet spot is bigger so you can string tighter and zm62 v.2 is quite elastic like bg66um so tighter is still repulsive.

    no wonder with the zymax62 back about 18mos ago @ 24lbs i noticed a drop in power, even just simple clear shots.

    now i'm just dying to buy my first mx80 with zymax 62 @ 22lbs

    Gotta warn you first...mx80 is crazy stiff... much stiffer than yonex extra stiff, making it very demanding. Not recommended if your usual tension is low 20's as that indicates low hand speed. You'll only cause shoulder injury with prolonged use.

    Just get the P Pro or Revelation like I said!

    And yes zm62 v.2 is more supposedly more durable and elastic than previous. But IMO don't string thin strings lower than 24 otherwise it feels strange like hitting with a fishing net.

    Dont string the ZM62 higher than 26lbs either....it'll hurt your wallet worse than stringing softer/using a different string hurts your game
