    don't jinx yourself. see you next week.

    I tried out the BG66UM last night. I have to admit i was a bit dissapointed as i found less repulsion in them when compared to the NBG98. However, the tension is a bit too high for my liking so i will give it a couple more weeks for the tension to settle before judging. I better find a way to love this stuff because i ordered a reel! haha.

    I know it is personal preference
    I found that the BG66UM is powerful and very responsive.

    So far, i think the NBG98 is more powerful as i have another racket (same make and model) that is was strung at 25lbs using the same machine. However, that racket was strung over a month ago and the tension is a lower than the fresh BG66UM. I will give it another review in a couple weeks.

    On another note, I am not sure if it's the crack i am smoking but i find rackets that are done with a drop weight machine retains tension for a longer period of time, or i should say tension drops slower when compared to a crank. Any truth to this?

    I don't string my own rackets, but I understand what you are saying.

    Yeah, drop weight machines are constant pull whereas crank machines lock out once the required tension is reached

    So far I've tried BG80, VS-850, ZY67 and BG85 but today used BG66UM for the first time. Definitely my fave of the bunch. Will be sticking with it for a while now. Got a sharper spring to it with added speed, and imo bags of repulsion.

    I have just bought several strings that are good for repulsion
    I got
    - BG66UM x3
    - BG66 x1
    - BG80 x1
    - NBG 98 x2
    - BG65 x1 (I didn't buy it someone bought it for me)

    I have only tried the BG66UM and there are really good !!

    Apprently I went to the badminton club and they didn't have BG 66 UM sadly but I just went with BG80 cuz why not xD. So after stringing at 24lbs. I can say its really amazing. I can do more powerful smashes more drop returns and the clears and other shots are so easy to perform. But definitly in the future when I get break my string or perhaps in summer when im getting a new racket then I'll it BG66 UM by then.

    BG66UM has a thickness of 0.65mm, if i'm not mistaken. While BG66 Medium Feeling has 0.66mm thickness. & i heard BG66UM is quite rare subject to availability.
