    Oh my God.... Good to you, Kwun...
    I am expecting more reviews for those Zymax 65

    I wish i could try those Zymax strings.....
    Too bad, our local retailer in here still have the old packaging in stock, & saying that the new package is nothing different compared to the old one...
    I will just have to wait for them to stock up the new package...

    The Zymax 62 I got looks like this.

    The string is not white. Looks like platinum.

    Is this an old version or just an old packaging?

    I found a old post saying white ZM string are the best in both performance and durability, anyone can confirm this? Does string colour really make a difference?

    A little bit on the Zymax 65: I got the red one so I can only comment on that really.

    Stringing impressions:
    - I find that the string coating is very similar to the 2nd generation Zymax for example the 67 which is somewhat rough like a super fine emery board and is not waxy at all. This makes weaving during stringing a bit uncomfortable compared to usual but negligible. One can imagine that this texture will BITE at the shuttle every time it comes in contact with it.

    - The 65 literally does not stretch at all under tension (maybe I wasnt pulling at high tensions 24x26), and if it does, it is just ever so slightly.

    Initial feel after stringing:
    - String bed feels very repulsive with quite a stiff bed, high pitched metallic sounds as expected from a thin string when bounced against the hand or any other objects.

    Playability:
    - It is very easy power right from the first hit, especially power shots. And as expected, the string bites onto the shuttle upon contact and maintains a lot of control from it after as well.

    - Shots were crisp and sounds were high pitched as expected. Surprisingly, it did not have the WOW factor like the 62 had on me when I first tried the 62. The 65 performed well in all areas but maybe I was so addicted to the 62 whereas the feeling of the 65 was blunted.

    - Medium to Medium Hard feeling.

    - Lastly, I find it very hard to control my serve with the 65. I do not know why but maybe its the repulsion from the string coupled with the bite of the shuttle. I had to make adjustments to my serve.

    - Also, durability wise, it is definitely a step forward with the 65 compared to the 62. It took quite a beating but still broke at the top left corner when was going for a 50-50 jump out smash but heck, most strings would snap anyways if it was that particular shot.

    Summary: out of a 10 scale
    Power / Repulsion: 9.5
    Hitting Sound: 9.0
    Control / Bite of the shuttle: 9.0 (too much bite really for my liking)
    Shock Absorption: 9.0 (Hits were crisp and clean, there was no lingering vibrations after)
    Durability: 7.5 (Still breaks from mishits, but hey, what do you expect from a thin string?)

    After reading the whole thread, it seems like white for durability(less moving around) and red for speed. I am still a bit confusing, does anyone actually try all the colours?

    So I just got a shipment from Ashaway yesterday containing a reel of Yellow Z65, Z62 and a few packages of 67 and 70 in various colors. So far I got all the colors covered for the 65 and I found that stringing the Z65 no matter what color is pretty challenging because the string is so soft, so if you are doing a two string method, at tension greater than 28lbs, its pretty tough with all the shared holes. Anyways, comparing all the Z65 colors...well, i found out that the red is a bit more rought in term of feel than the white or the yellow. That is not saying the white or yellow is not rought to begin with. But I have to say the zymax strings are so tough...like i have a hard time cutting it with my scissor at times. And what I noticed after playing on the Red string for over three weeks is that the crossing between the main and the cross...the string tends to rub a bit, hence the color would turn into a pinkish red on the string bed. I think its a combination of the constant contact and the time play on it. Anyways, only thing i can tell you about my Z65 red is that it is still alive, I didnt break the string yet, and it did not fray up or show sign of breakage yet. However I noticed after 3 weeks that it might drop a pound or two in tension.

    Since I also bought z62, z67, and z70 in different colors, I will try to test them out and let you guys know more about them later.

    Ordered 5 packs of Zymax65 from Stringer's World. Worked out to be ~USD5.60 per pack including shipping, not too bad. Hopefully MBS can stock it soon and be cheaper than that.

    Happy day today - finally got my hands on my first reel of Z65!! So should be able to string up one of the racquets and test it out soon. The Z65 is marginally redder than the red BG66UM, but similar to the Z67. Hope you guys/gals out there get your Z65 soon too!Name:  IMG_0253.jpg

    It also doesn't hurt that an MX80 with red strings and red grip is probably the hottest looking racket ever conceived.

    and this must be the cousin from the dark side...
