K4mu1, if you have a slippery surface, of course you will slip and fall very fast. But we are not trying to find out what type of surface makes people fall all over the floor faster. You have taken a wrong turn. The objective is to jump up as high as you can, and floors which are not slippery are better. Slippery floor is the winner if you want to fall all over the place, but you will not be able to jump even 1 foot on a slippery floor. Hitting a shuttle is having two objects collide, not to slide off from each other.

Yes.. that's also true. Well... let's fix my view. How do we call something slippery? If we're using a certain footwear, with bad bad bad outsole, we're definitely going to slide even in a good floor. Instead an outsole with a good grip will be fine. So slippery is also preference. I'm not saying a very slippery String will be wonderful.
Let's treat the outsole as the surface of the cock, and the floor as the string bed, we'll be concluding, the point of how good a grip is and how bad a slide is, is based on the cock we're playing with.
Surface of cock will have certain texture, this texture will provide a good grip. This is why, I'm saying that waxing is another preference, because some people might like the slipper surface (wax is not so slippery, actually they also provide certain different gripping feeling) rather than the gripper surface.
My point is, wax will also slightly increases durability due to their more slipper surface, and they're acting as the damper between the main and the crosses. The feeling is different based on the amount of wax applied. They're just like oil to the engine. Giving certain level of protection. But, not everyone will enjoy the effect, so if you're waxing your string, you will have to do it right, in a right amount, and if you dislike it, you will have to know how to clean them away.
This is my opinion xD.

I recently strung (just three weeks) an NBG98 at 29/31lbs and I am ready to call it a day and switch over to a new ML67 string (5,000 microfilaments), because I have a similar racquet strung with this new thin ML string that plays better and for longer.

Well... No >.< I'm not after the durability, It's just another benefit point xD... I just like the way BG68Ti going with the wax. It feels... Nice (For me). Well it's everyone preference right xD. Just reading this article through, and lots of people is saying different opinion about this xD. And since I do this thing, I provide my own argument.
Anyway, it's an honor to debate with you Master taneepak xD. Thanks for your opinion, it provide me another view xD. And... why did you cut the string after 2 mths anyway...?

Now, just imagine your BG68Ti probably has about 100 multifilaments whereas another string of similar diameter has 4,000 to 5,000 microfilaments. Which string will lose elasticity faster? Micro means finer, multi less so.

Welll... my BG68Ti is not even reaching 2mths old xD... The Arc10 is a gift, and it's about nearly 2 months old. So does the string, it's about. I forgot the date, and since I'm sending the racket to my hometown, can't peek the date xD...
Well... about the filaments now. I know about those theory. But, the length is based upon the length. There's even some way to calculate that, which I'm not interested xD... since I'm not really into physics T_T... I'm from IT xD... Only have the logic. And I know, if they're getting too long already, they're going to lose tension fast. It's based on the materials used too. Certain materials are going to hold out long. I believe dinkalot has reviewed a lot of those string. I forgot BG68Ti is categorized as losing tension fast or not. One thing for sure, he don't like the feeling ...
Well, that explains the 2 months time. But, actually how fast are they losing tension? (I'm pretty confident my string will be "dead" already before the time). I heard there's someone testing string "tension hold" in this forum, and I haven't reading bout those again xD...
