    After trying for many years pretty much all yonex strings and tensions I settles on the Yonex BG80P.

    Its great, its my favorite. Now I know there are a lot more string manufactures out there and a lot more new strings out there. So I'd like to ask if any of you changed from being a BG80P user to anything else and liked that change.

    I have only tried Yonex strings and I haven't exbolt but everything else i have tried.

    Thanks.

    Like food, you might like noodle & its the best fav food for you. But how would you know pizza is good to if you never try it?
    How would you ever know if maybe fried chicken is better than noodle if you never taste it?
    So just try it, experience it yourself. Thats part of how you enjoy your life & get colorfull experiencein your life.

    haha yeah but if there is some one who likes fried chicken and he says Kentucky fried chicken was his favorite and then he tried b Texas fried chicken and that's better. well there is value in that opinion, it narrows down the possibilities get it?

    But thanks for taking the time to reply I feel hungry now....hehe

    I also played with different Yonex strings and I had a preference towards thinner strings. My favorite YY string playing with feather shuttles was the BG85, currently I am trying out the Lining No. 1 and I like it very much. You may give it a try and see how it feels for you.

    More power: exbolt.
    More control: aerobite.

    That's what I go for, if that helps.

    Try Exbolt if you like repulsion go with 63 but it really doesn't tolerate miss hit.
    If you usually miss hit, try 65 first. It more forgiving

    Gosen G-tone 5 and Ashaway zymaz 62 fire could be worth trying if you want to try somthing thats not Yonex.

    I have played with Kizuna D66 (at 27 pounds) since last month. It now becomes my favourite string. I would say it feels likes Yonex BG80, Li-ning No.1.

    A victor alternative would be the VBS 68. Its quite a good replacement for BG80P
