    Ok so I got a confirmation from Steve Crandall from Ashaway that the product from e78 is genuine. The packaging was just different.

    It's such a mistake to throw ZyMax 62 Mark II out of the window. 62F is not nearly as good as 62 Mark II at lower tensions. Someone should let Ashaway know this.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. For control and counterattacking players like me, Ashaway went the wrong direction in feel and grip in trying to get more durability.

    But there's an alternative, as I suggested above, Gosen G-Tone 5, which I think is even better than ZM62 gen 2.

    How is GT5 for defense? I really enjoyed the effortlessness for defense from ZM62.

    I would say "telepathic" for defence and counter attack. Due to the wonderful feel and grip, wherever you think you want the bird to be, it'll be there.

    Hmm. Makes me want to try this out now. Or is that just because you're simply a good player that's why?:)
    62 Mark II?

    Great string! Just tried this today and I was blown away by its performance!

    This silver one is noticeably thicker and slippery. Have a bad feeling about this one...

    It's like the one string you should never use in cooler or cold weather.
