Tried this string yesterday for over 2 hours of play. Am using the Armortec900P, strung with one string at 26/28 #s...and I just loved it. Have been using the BG80. The BG85 has the same beautiful "parp" sound during smashing as the BG80, but I get more control and better net plays. The BG80 tension is only good(for me) for about a month of playing or about 20-28 hours. Hopefully this one does better.
