    Frankly, I think the new red color Zymax strings are a disappointment. Yes, it is more durable but it lacks the crispness and speed of the old platinum ones. The reds have a longer dwell time.
    Another thing, there is no way the thicker Zymax strings have more power than the thinner ones, assuming one hits the bird with the right technique.

    I am in agreement. The old ones seemed more powerful, crisp and controlled. Then again the old ones broke very easily indeed. The new 62's have lasted me 2 months so far compared to about 2 weeks for the old ones. They have even withstood a fair number of mis-hits.

    Does anyone have any comment on what the other colours feel like in comparison to the reds?

    My low-skill, low-tension opinion of the new Z62 (white) is the same as above. Perhaps just not quite as crisp as the old. But still a nice string.

    MBS already has 2nd gen 62, 67, 70. Dunno why the 65 hasn't shown up in stock yet but I'm sure it will be soon.

    I don't think I paid much more than 5 bucks from Stringers World, but it's good to have more than one source.....

    .......not that I've used my first batch yet.

    Tried the Z65 for the first time today (I am behind the times) - couldn't really be much happier with it. Nearly the most powerful string I've ever tried, with nearly the hardest feel, and I didn't break it in the first session. Thing is, I'll now have to try Z62 at the same tension...

    I was pleasantly surprised that the UK got it so soon after the US launch as well.

    As hard a feel as BG80?

    If so I must order some! (as well as more VS850 )

    ^Well, I've got some BG80 and VS850 still to test at 30... never taken them so high before, so the crown might go at the last minute.

    (Sorry - blissful memories of Sunday's footie coloured that metaphor.)

    Ungh, it has a hard feel? I was hoping it was more like Ultimax / VS850 and less like BG80.

    Especially considering I need to get a roll of string, and Ultimax is $106 and ZM65 is $79.

    SW35 + ZM62N@25lbs.

    the pop coming out of this combo is just incredible.

    and for the battle of thin gauge, ZM62N beats NBG98 hands down. slightly stiffer feeling and more feel on the ZM62N, and with even more explosiveness than NBG98.

    durability might be NBG98 is better, but to be honest with everyone here, i have never broken a ZM62N. no matter how hard i tried to hit with it.

    i have a friend who just had his racket strung with NBG98@25lbs. i gave him my racket with ZM62N to try, he gave me his other racket and ask me to cut the strings and put the ZM62N on it. he is getting way more repulsion from the ZM62 than the NBG98.
