    BG80/BG80 Power @24lbs is a safe bet. ;)

    I used the Power for nearly a year. I was coming from BG80. Now I'm using the BG80 again. So I share my experience.
    I was happy for some time with BG80 Power. It was a nice string which went with me through some tournaments and a bunch of league games. It was really a good string, but in the area of my prefered tension 29/31 to 32/34 depending on season and my fitness, the BG80 Power lost alot of feel after some time.

    Actually I restring one of my rackets every week. So I'm not the average player who plays a string until it breaks. The frequency of restrings makes no difference if I use the BG80 or BG80 Power.

    FME the BG80Power lasts longer, if you play it until it breaks. The BG80 don't drop too much tension about a long time. The BG80 is a very direct feel string. I love this feel. The BG80Power also has a good feedback but not as direct as BG80. BG80 has a slightly rougher coating.

    As a stringer I can say that a lot customers go for the Power. It's a good string but needs a bit manual Pre stretch and 0.5-1lbs more to be more close to BG80. They prefer the slightly softer feel and increased durabilty.

    I can say that I slightly smash harder with BG80 at the same tension. Some people will feel different. It's also a bit cheaper so everything speaks IMO for BG80. If you like a slightly softer feel and increased durability the Power is the better option.
