    Have measured both Zymax 67 in red and yellow, comes to about .73mm. Havent strung the red one yet but the yellow at 24lb is .67mm or there abouts. Zymax 62 is right when untensioned. I would say the new strings are definitely thicker when untensioned. Just noticed that the Red zymax67 I got from MBS has only Ashaway USA markings on it but the yellow ones from Eric (RKEP) has Both Ashaway USA and Zymax 67 on it. Is this normal?

    Anyone know where to get ZM65 in the US? I only want to try it out so I don't really feel like spending that much money to meet Ashaway's MOQ. Do Badminton Alley or MBS have it yet?

    According to the rep I emailed, $100. Quite reasonable for those who restring often and/or for other people, but I don't restring frequently so it's a bit much for me.

    Just to update you guys so far...

    3 weeks of play on Zymax65 (Red/Yellow), no fray or string popping yet...and its smashing like a champ

    2 weeks of play on Z62 (Red), string is holding tension and very powerful still

    2 weeks of play on z70 (white) holding tension pretty well and its powerful but not as much as 62 or 65

    The z62 seems to be the harder smashing racket at 26lbs and the z65 isnt far behind at all.

    Been testing it comparing to bg66U, and seems like the 66U is more repulsive than the 65 or 62 by a tad...not much, just a tad. Havnt play that long on the 66U so I cannot comment on the durability yet. I will update you guys more on the z62, z65, z70 and 66U moving forward.

    I bought mine directly from Ashaway. I called them up and then pay for it with a credit card over the phone and they ship out the shipment and less than a week i get it an so on. Pretty easy and painless process, and they were pretty nice too. Even admitted it that they revamped their z52 and z65 to answer the 66U, which is pretty honest and interesting.

    And i love the strings...

    You'll enjoy it!! I've also done the Z65 for other players and they're equally complimentary of it.

    You also asked me a few posts ago as to whether I do a 2 or 4 knot stringing with regard to the longevity of the Z62. I do both but usually a 4 knot pattern for Yonex players, and a 2 knot pattern for myself. I don't think it really matters which pattern is used with regard to string life. There's a lot on the forum archive about one or the other, and interestingly Kwun has also just done a video on the Haribito 2 knot system, and jshrmohanty from India has contributed the PaiZuan 2 knot pattern. I believe in KL/Msia the general practice is the 2 knot pattern, which is not a problem at all as when I get my racquets there the strings have always been well strung and play well.

    All the best with your Z65!!

    I wonder what a hybrid stringing pattern of Z65 + Z62 would be like. Best of both worlds maybe?

    Hm, it says $75 on the DPL too. I'm not sure which one but basically it comes out to MOQ = one reel give or take a couple extra packs of string. Sure, I wouldn't mind trying some 67, how would that work out?

    Stringers World sells Zymax at 3.84 GBP per pack or 54 GBP for a reel. That comes out to about 6.11 USD and 86 USD, respectively. Shipping is ~5-13 USD. Prices are better elsewhere for me, but thanks for the suggestion Maklike.

    Or the worst of both worlds - half the "durability" of Z65 with half the feel and crispness of Z62 .
