    nice. but makes little sense for a big smasher to go to MX80. SW35 seems more suitable.

    I think now that LYD has over the past year himself developed a pretty powerful rearcourt smash, JJS needs to be more of an all court player than before to help out with forecourt interceptions, drives etc. Hence the switch to a faster albeit slightly less powerful racket.

    What string do you think goes well with the MX-80 (similar gauge)?

    been using pretty much VS850 exclusively at range of 25 to 27. everyone who tried it like the feel and touch of the racket+string. however, a bit slightly lacking in repulsion. i recently strung it up with nbg98 @ 29.5 and the repulsion is really amazing but the touch is lacking a bit. i am going to try lower it to 28 and see what happens.

    unfortunately with so many new rackets and so little play time as well as super whimpy power i am not breaking enough string on the MX80 to try out many strings.

    cannot get used to it. the NBG98 is nice on power and sound. best in terms of sound, actually. but the touch/feel is just so weird. almost like a wooden board. VS850 at the same tension (29.5lbs) has a much livelier feel to it. so weird.

    will keep trying it until i cannot stand it anymore or when it breaks. then i will try VS850@29.5lbs, a string+tension combo that i am thoroughly enjoying on the SW35.

    kwun,

    How do you compare vs850 with zm67? In terms of feel, power, control, and especially tension retention...

    I usually play with zm67 but I'm tempted to try vs850 after hearing all these good reviews.

    hm... i haven't used zm67 for a while now. but what i remember is that it has good repulsion at around 25lbs. the shuttle does bounce off quite nicely. the feeling is slightly to the softer side. feel is ok but slightly erratic. tension retention is very decent.

    vs850 is pretty bad when it comes to retention. but the feel / touch is just so good it has not been matched by any other strings that i have used. as a result, control is excellent which is the main reason i am using it. i play a lot of mixed with touch shots in which feel and control is crucial. repulsion is good at higher tension, medium in 25/26-ish. i was getting very very good repulsion out of it. the sound is excellent too but not as loud as nbg98.

    ^^
    Thanx for the mini comparo!

    So for the vs850, in order to take into account the so-so tension retention, do you then prestretch it to take off some slack, or do you string it say 10% higher tension and wait a few days for it to settle to your target tension?

    i don't do anything special. i just leave it to the machine to do the pre-stretching as i do with all strings.

    Hmmm, but it'll lose tension over some time, so I suppose then you string higher tension first and allow it to settle to your target, knowing that it will lose 2-3 lbs after X number of days?

    well i suppose if i absolutely want say 29lbs on the vs850 then yes, i might have to compensate for the tension loss.

    but then what is 29lbs anyway? 29lbs on vs850 is not the same as 29lbs on bg65 which is not the same as 29lbs on zm67. even at the same tension, every string behaves differently.

    so getting absolutely 29lbs in vs850 is meaningless in some way. what is important is that when i dial in 29lbs on my machine, and let the string slack over time, i like the feeling that came out of it. yes, in reality that may have already slacked to 27/25/23/20 lbs. but that's really not important anymore. what is important is that i like the end product while i dial in 29lbs in the machine.

    Yep, I'm waiting for Eric to get his share of MX70's, then I'll get one to complement my current MX80 and there'll be a Vancouver mini group buy with several rackets, 2 bags, dozens of grips, strings, shirts, etc!
