    Try Nanogy 98. lots of power for smashing. Very durable for a thin 0.66mm string. Controlling the net can be a little tricky at first but once you get used to it...you'll be fine.

    Totally agree with this. I used to think 95 is the best combo between durability/power. However, my mind changes as soon as I play on Nanogy 98. Like usually I can get the 98 to last 2-4 months or so strung at 26lbs, playing about 5-10hrs a week or so.

    However, I am starting to fall in love with Ashaway Zymax 65 Red/Yellow at a fraction of the cost of the 98.

    If you want maximum power, control and durability at the same time then use BG75ti

    It's going to be different for everyone, but I'm a user of BG80's for more than 10 years and I didn't like BG80P at all. It absorbs power and feels dull. I also don't like the nanology line for the same reasons :p

    I used BG65 for a long time and still consider to use it at high tension at 30lbs I think. Used it at 27lbs and it still was kinda dead.

    NBG95 is fine at first, but it's not good for sliced shots, in the end it can't keep the tension and feels dull. NBG98 is still slippery, but doesn't feel that dead.

    BG80 is what I would go for. Keeps tension, sounds good and it's nice to use sliced shots. Downside is, it's torn very quickly if you like to slice...

    Do as I did, change string to Gosen Nanocubic, it gives you great power and durability.
    Since the string is quite stiff it may take a short while to get used with it and the control. Its worth to try for you.
