    A friend just string his racket & send me some string photo.
    Kizuna, Maxbolt, & Zymax.
    One catch my eye Zymax 62.
    While im browsing around seems the new one are 62 Fire & some say that 25lbs Zymax 62 feel similar as thick 0.69 gauge string at 30lbs.
    So here i ask opinion from they who had been try this string.
    Is it worth string for its old version (i think)?
    Normaly i use BG66UM 27lbs, if its worth it, what tension suggested for it?

    Thanks

    If you want to test a string, use the same tension and stringer you normally use. Otherwise you cannot get any useful information from that test.

    I didn't like ZM62F, but it certainly didn't feel like 30 when stringing it at 28 (in my case).

    If you are looking for alternatives to BG66UM, LN1, G-Tone 5, and Überschall F66 come to mind.... that reminds me, I really cannot wait to compare those when I can play again!

    Yes, i know the golden rule. I have try most of Yonex, Lining, & Victor string. The thing that interest me is that zymax use different material but not sure if i should follow the rule or not.
    For Gtone5, to bad i cant find one to try.
    And for Uber66 its available in mall (Planet Sport) but not sure if they willing to string non Adidas racket & due to Covid i havent go to mall more than 6 month.

    62 fire will not feel as tight then the older versions of 62.

    So in the end im very curious with it & try it. I ask my friend to string it at his stringer @26lbs, 1lbs lower than my usual tension. Play 3 games with it today & here my tought for it.

    It seems it had smaller sweet spot as i miss hit alot today (makes me wonder how bad am i on hitting consistency:confused:)

    for low swing shot (drive, net, serve) its kinda less repulsive abit but on full swing (clear, smash) its very devastating i would say & the sound really really KABOM:eek: (that if you hit the sweet spot)

    1 thing that are very noticable, its a sandpaper string, very rough surface. Put it on a light & you will see the rough surface, quite noticable to when you feel it with your finger, & when i fix the string from moving, i could feel & hear click...click sound as the rough surface scratch each other. For that trait it bite the shuttle very well. When im slicing the shuttle today, i slice way beyond my usual slice.

    For durability, considering im miss hit many times today & it didnt snap, i guest its good, but idk time will prove it.

    Last, my friend told me feedback from the stringer. This string is the hardest to string & little mistake would snap it which is why he didnt restock any zymax.
