    - I think I don't have to know why people can "store" rackets like this. Especially such a nice racket! ^^ Maybe my addiction to badminton will never ever reach a level like yours :P

    guilty as charged!

    but i already have 2 regular ARC10s. (or is it 3?) so i don't need another one. but as you know the ARC10PG is so beautiful and i got a good deal for it so i bought one but so far see no need to string it up.

    maybe in 20 yrs when i am much older and my kids are all grown up, i will dig it out and share it with the younger generation here in BC. and everybody will go, "Ooooo....." and "Ahhh....."

    In general:

    ZM62: extra stiff
    ZM65: moderately stiff
    ZM67: medium stiff
    ZM70: medium stiff

    Of course string bed stiffness can altered depending on how tight or loose you string the racket too.

    Is there someone who tested the new Zymax strings in different colors? My reels are running empty too, so I have to order some new ones soon. I love the new 62 and 65, but tested them only in red. I would like a reel in optic yellow, but perform those less than the red stings (as read earlier)? What do you think is the best string in terms of power(1), control(2) and durability(3)?

    My all time string is the BG 66 and BG 66 UM but after trying the new 62 and 65, I feel that the new zymax had a better repulsion. Now Im only using the 62, 65 and BG 66 UM.

    I bought Z62 in red and optic yellow and the Z65 in red and optic yellow. Honestly I could not tell the difference between the two. I had people play on them and some prefer the yellow over the red...well do to personal color difference. But so far i ran through about 3 Zymax reels this year so far and seems like eithe red or yellow on average...will last you about 2-3 weeks with the clients. For me either 62 or 65 (red and yellow) will last me about 6 weeks. I also bought the 70 in white and Red but have yet to try those out...

    I strung a couple of rackets with the Zymax62 and tried them out yesterday.
    omg, omg omg! Amazing how effortless I can send everyone to the back court, which gives me way more time to concentrate on positioning myself, the shuttle, and playing my opponents into troubles.
    Thank You Ashaway !

    The best Zymax strings of all gauges in order of playability are : 1. Platinum; 2. Optic Yellow; 3. Ivory; 4. Red.

    Colors do make a difference in all Zymax strings. The thinner the gauge the greater the difference. The red is by far the worst, a huge disappointment. How can anyone say it is superlative? The difference in playability is mainly due to the different color pigments and the dye used.

    You are getting different string than some of us then.

    In general white plays the best.

    For a while red was playing the best because consistently it was the thinnest. Since then, Ashaway has made some changes and red is now thicker.

    A thicker string will not have better playability or power as a thinner string, AOTBE. It can only be more durable. In fact you can check this with Ashaway or any string manufacturer.
    Colors do affect playability, because of pigments and dyes and where applied. Pigments will give more durability but dyes are better in playability but not so good in durability. If a string, which is considered thicker, is of the same gauge than another string, then it either uses pigments or has a thicker coating or both, which has adverse effects on playability.

    I just placed an order at stringersworld for Zymax 62. Based on your own purchase, how many days it took to receive the item (especially for those in southeast asia)?
