    BG66 Sharp is actually a 0.68mm gauge string. From what I heard from an exprienced stringer, The famed BG66S is braided like other BG66 strings but has a feel resembling the 8-series (80/85) string. If "Force" combines BG80's hard feeling and BG66's repulsion then I'm sold:p

    Now the gauge is 0.65mm, same as the 66UM. Being a thin gauge string lover I really can't wait..I just hope it does lose feel and tension as quickly.

    66, 66 Maxima, 66 Ultimax... and now this. Anybody else think Yonex are over-stuffing the thin end?

    If they want something new-new, how about a 0.66/0.65 Vectran?:)

    Well, if this string is priced the same as UM 66 BUT does not lose tension as quickly as the UM, then this would be my new fave string after the NBG 98...

    Surely minimizing tension loss would mean you'd sell less string...:)

    It's expensive, it makes you feel great but it doesn't last.... sure sounds like how I'd describe something else! :D

    Well, we'll be getting delivery of this string within the next few days from Yonex.
    I should be testing it out at 27lbs with my trusty ol' Arcsaber 11.
    Will keep you updated on how this feels like...

    BG85 is a .67 vectran. Still not thin enough ;)

    The string is different than bg66um, bg66 force has extra sound..

    Anybody tried this string yet? Would love to see a comparison among all of the 66 lines, especially with the current 66UM.

    You can also buy it in US. But, I am looking for a comparison of it against other strings.
