    I wonder if it is like a replacement for the 95 since it is 0.69mm as well......

    If you zoom in on the string performance rating meter, you will see that NBG99 has a "Control Rating" of 10/10, which is the same as the CBG100. It is mentioned where you got the info as a successor to the infamous BG88Ti.

    In fact NBG99 is categorised under a new "Control Based string" group, similar to how BG65 is under Durability and BG80 is under Hard Hitter :D

    It is priced similar to the NBG98 JP..

    The series color is Green. It is a new category of YY's string.

    The current existing series are blue (repulsion), yellow (durability) and red (hitting sound)

    From the ratings seems like it has 1 bar less than NBG98 for repulsion (Becomes 9) and 2 bars more to the max for control.
