Yonex BG-66 Maxima JP (each)
[BG-66M JP]
US$12.50
by Mark Appleton Date Added: Wednesday 10 February, 2010
This is lovely stuff. Strung on my NS9900 at 24.5 x 27 lbs, it is the "sharpest" Yonex string I have ever tried, being both pinpoint accurate and massively powerful.

Stringing is very easy thanks to the thinness - you can practically throw it through those grommets :). I have not seen much tension loss either, so it looks like I won't be cutting it out like I do with so many others when they go soft.

Power is outstanding, as it should be for a string this thin, and the noise is nice and boomy when you crank one at full power. I have had to adjust the pace of my lifts and clears because they were all going long during my first session with 66M, and with smash blocks I can just hold the racket out in front of me without moving it: the string takes care of everything!

Control is even better - the shuttle stays on the bed for hardly any time at all, so slices and hairpins go exactly where you expect them to, as do crosscourt angles around the head. This is what I mean by "sharpness", and only one string I know of does it better...

I can't really comment on durability because I am only ten hours in, but I will say I have broken BG66 in less than ten hours before, so 66M is holding up better already. If it lasts me anything close to 25 hrs I will consider it flawless.

The only criticism I can level is at the price: it is twice as expensive as BG66, but I can't honestly say it's twice as good. However, you should definitely try it at least once, as playability-wise I consider it the apex of Yonex's line.
