    hi
    Stringing tension is slack at the moment and am getting it resting soon
    I was wondering what is the best tension to have the best blend power and control with the following strings NBG 95 BG 65ti BG 68 ti
    Using ns9900 and bg65 at 22lbs but not happy with it

    Everone has their own individual string tension they like.

    Maybe try 2lbs higher with BG65 , if you still do not like that , then switch around the strings.

    Have you tried all the strings ?

    I don't like the bg 65 string at all there wasn't enough repulsion and control the NBG 95 I liked at 24lbs and have tried BG 65ti at 21 but found it to weak haven't tried BG 68ti yet but I heard they are repulsive and they provide good control but I don't know what tension and how durable
    (NBG 95s) were on a ns9000x
    (BG 65tis) were on a ns9900

    Try BG80. I like that better than BG65. A lot of people have said the BG65 comes 'alive' at very high tension... Best bet would be to try BG80 at 24lb.. Good power and good control(touch)..

    65ti in my opinion is the best compromise between playability and durability and as a stringer and player it is always the first string that I recommend when asked for advice. you might find that with BG80 it breaks very quickly despite perhaps a slightly nicer feel. same goes for 68ti. as for NBG, it lasts for ages but loses tension really quickly and you will probably end up cutting them out before they break. furthermore BG65ti will probably be cheaper than the others. tension wise you probably won't go wrong with 24-25lbs - particularly as the string will lose tension over time
