    they put VT80 with string 310 after string, so IMO 300 is ok
    Usually strings shift bp by +5mm. And thin overgrip then brings it back to no shift.

    That website probably just lists the bp with strings and no overgrip, only original grip. That would explain those bp's for mx80 and vt80, as they are around 293 and 305mm respectively unstrung no overgrip.

    Meant to say I'm using a vt70. And find a vt80 very demanding. Would mx80 be a good choice or Tpro?

    I've had experiences with both BS11 and MX80. All I can say is that I found the MX80 to be so much better.
    With the BS11, I couldn't hit clean shots because it was sort of head heavy, but swung really fast so kept on mis-timing my shots.
    Also, it's really flexible so wasn't right for me because I think that my swing is too fast. Shuttle was leaving the stringbed before the head actually had the chance to snap back into place and hit the shuttle.

    The MX80 on the other hand, really stiff so suited me perfectly. Smashes were powerful, drives and defence was lightning fast, defensive lifts were flying to the baseine thanks to the extra weight in the head. It's just as fast in defence as the ns9900 if not faster, but its more head heavy.

    So in the end, if you have a slow swing speed, then the bs11 will suit you. But if you have a fast swing speed, then the MX80 will be your new weapon.

    Just a question for those that have strung the mx80... I usually prefer to do a 2 piece pattern but the way the holes are lined up means I am skipping 4-5 holes on the bottom in order to tie off, that seems like quite the distance. I could just do the victor pattern, in that case, anyone have a good idea on how much string on either side of the center mains?

    yes. it is an interesting situation. you either run a really long segment all the way down to B6, or do what i do, tie it off in B10. it works.

    i tie cross at B6 and mains at B10. minimal (2 holes) distances for each.

    Yes, I guess that would work as long as you prestring the racket, it would be tough to get the cross string through there if you had a knot in the way. In the end I decided to use the 1 piece method, estimated the string I would need (was generous) and it worked out fine. The top I was good, only wasted 1.5 feet, on the bottom though I had 3 feet left over.... will know for next time or give your pattern a shot.

    if you are doing bottom up cross, no pre-weave needed except you need to pre-weave the bottom 2 cross before you tie-off the mains. that's about it. the rest are the same. you can weave and tension all the mains all the way, leaving out the tie-off, and then weave 2 cross, and then tie-off mains.
