Best repulsion String
This is a question for all the Pro's. What's the best string in the market that has got repulsion and helps to clear the shuttle? Any manufacturer would do.

I am not a pro but BG66Ultimax is great for repulsion, Zymax62 and AccuPower 62 also have great repulsion.

I would be more concerned about your technique rather than which string gives you the most repulsion. Your tension can also affect how much repulsion you have.

Technically speaking the "best repulsion" string setup "ever" is using the thinnest strings (ZM62 for example) at very low tensions of 20lbs or below. But the problem is a lazy high clear with no technique put in at all will still only go at most 3/4 court and the string will break within a few minutes of play due to mishits
I DARE ALL those who are having the same question and thought (i.e. "I have no technique so I want to get the best out of my equipment and have them play the game for me as I think that is the best way for me") as the Opening Poster to try the setup I suggested. Warning is you MUST BE RICH to sustain such play style though!

I thought BG80 got 1 of the best repulsion feel? It's not exactly a thin string, it's 0.68mm

BG66 Ultimax is a good string !! for people who like to smash but about a month later the tension will start to loosen

no need a month. I replace the string every month because it snapped! being using BG66UM for 3 month already. my tension is 27lbs.

is the tension reasonable for you now? contracting and expanding.
I went to Galasports in Queensway really annoying I asked the guy to string 24lbs it doesn't feel like 24lbs ! it feels much less.
now I have to spend more money to get my racket restrung !

hehe, maybe a SG 24lbs isn't as tight as UK 24lbs thats why people in SG string so high.

1) yonex bg66
2) yonex bg80
3) yonex bg85
4) ashaway pg66
5) ashaway microlegend
any of the strings above will give you significant repulsion and control.

With strings I have tested I think :
1. BG66UM (Personally my favourite strings to use)
3. BG80 (currently using it)
4. BG65 (I put this in for fun)
