I have used bg80 for years and have recently switched to zymax 65 (due to a sponsorship change). In general zymax65, though having good repulsion and durability, felt quite soft to me. In order to get the hard feeling of bg80, I have increased my tension from 30x32 to 34x36. The increased tension achieved the hard feeling i am going after... unfortunately, since upping the tension 2 moths ago, I have broken 4 rackets and my sponsor is getting a little worried. Because of this, I am thinking of switching to z62 (this would be quite a hassel because I currently have 2 partially used reels of z65)
my question is,
Is Z62 able to retain decent durability while being strung at a tension that would emulate the hard feeling similar to bg80 at 31 lbs?
I would really appreciate if you guys could give me your opinion,

guys, does Zymax 65 hold the tension very well?
Ashaway says Zymax 67 is "Lowest Tension Loss of any Badminton String"

ZM62 has a soft feeling

thanks limsandy, but i had a bit of a different result.
I got a few indavidual packs of zm62 and tried it out. I strung 2 rackets at 27 x 29 and was pretty impressed by the zm62's repulsion, i agree not as good as bg66um, but it does feel more crisp. also, the hitting sound is great. I did however break strings on my 2nd go with zm62 (my fault, mis hit on a full smash). My other racket with zm62 is still intact after 8 sessions.
I know there have been a ton of reviews on this string already, but I'll quickly give my opinion
good:Hitting sound is the best of any string I've ever tried 10/10
Repulsion is quite good 7/10
Control is great 9/10
Quite crisp at highish tensions 8/10
bad: Duribility is questionable (I will need to play more with it to test this) 6/10
A fair bit of movement of the strings, I find myself readjusting the strings often
Overal: A very good string with good repulsion, crispness and great control. The only possible downfall is questionable durability. Over all I give this string 8/10!

Anybody else finding the new Zymax 62 to be rubbish in feel when compared with the old one? Perhaps I have just got used to the old string, but this new string just doesn't feel as alive up around 31-32lbs. Not really bothered about durability, as I cut my strings out after 3 or 4 days anyway. I feel it is a funny move to make what is obviously a performance string above all else more durable in favour of lower performance, but there you go. Also, were people really breaking the old string that often? I am a power player through and through, but hit the shuttle pretty cleanly, and I don't think I managed to break the old string once! I even left it in for around about 45 hours of playing time I think, and it was fine!
Really disappointed as apparently it is impossible for me to get hold of a reel of the old Zymax 62 in the UK. Anyone have one they want to sell?

I have my Yonex VT80 strung with Zm65 Red 26lbs:
I love it , so impressed by its overall performance and when called upon, the power you wield when you smash is incredible. It feels similar to BG66UM to be but much fiercer and controlled especially in the backcourt area.
Also I just got a new racket:
Victor MX London Zm67 Silver 26lbs:
I have an issue with this setup, i didn't expect the strings to be strung so tightly and now I have no power in smashes or clears.
Can anyone advise the best way to lose tension quickly in strings ? (it will be hard if Ashaway claim this to hold tension well...)

^^ If anything your zm67 should feel *less* tight than zm65 at the same tension. More likely your lack of power is that you haven't adapted to a less head heavy racket going from a vt80 to the mx London.

I guess so as they are such different rackets, I've been too reliant on the VT80's power.
I will have to give it some time.
But my MX London looks like its electric strung too compared to my VT80 which is strung by hand.
