    Default my experience with badminton strings...

    halo everyone~ i shall cut to the chase~ (sorta speak..)

    i used to use NBG 98(27lbs) because it's feels dull to BG66(24lbs)
    i changed it 2 months ago.
    BG 66 feels very soft and i disliked it...but i used my friends racket bg66(27lbs)and i loved it's hard feeling...

    -so...is it my tension too low?
    -and if i want to change my string...what string that has a hard feel? i am eyeing on zymax 62 RM25 my friend said it's fake ...but i wanted try it...BG80 RM35 very expensive but since currently out of stock ...but it had great reviews...VS850 RM29 ~

    Zymax strings are actually pretty cheap, less than BG80 retail so the price doesn't seem too out of wack. ZM62 is very easy to break though, that I would suggest at 25 lbs not 27.

    Why did you use a different tension on 66 from 98 to begin with? They are the same gauge so you should have used the same tension to begin with.

    the racket i bought is from a friend he strung it with nbg 98 with 27lbs when he sold it to me .. i think i would care less about durability since i dont have the power to break any string ...

    If you really want hard feel go with the BG80.

    BG66 at 27lbs will break very easily if u hit wrongly or at the wrong spot. if u going for tension more than 25lbs, i will also suggest BG80

    I tried strings from yonex ( bg65 and nbg98), victor and protech. All strung at the same tension (25lbs). Personally i feel that nbg98 would be the better string. It gives the best feel when you hit the shuttle and smashes are generally powerful.
    Bg65 would be the runner up here due to the control it gives in spite of the thickness.
    Victor, i forgot the model, yields the most power here but gives the worst feel.
    Protech just isnt for me i guess. Bad feel and a constant loss of power.
    If course these are just personal opinions.
