Below is BG66 Ultimax racket restring review:-
BG66UM is one of the most famous and popular string used by many badminton players in Singapore. There is no doubt that in term of repulsion and hitting sound, BG66 Ultimax is the best string so far.
We have received many positive feedbacks on BG66UM. The hitting sound helps to build up a player’s confidence. As for repulsion, you can feel it is good when doing lobbing and smashing. Based on our records, generally the requested tension for BG66UM is between 25 – 28lbs.
At times, we receive feedbacks from players saying that it is best to continuously play after restringing using Yonex BG66UM. If not, they feel that the string repulsion will be gone. There are some players who keeps the racket after restringing. They keep this racket as a back-up. The actual reason is that thin strings will easily lose their tension once after restringing.
Review by Eric:- I have used this string with a tension of 28lbs for my leisure games. I feel that the repulsion is good and very suitable for all levels of badminton players.

To begin with, some players prefer BG66 over BG66 Ultimax because of the durability. Therefore, we always ask our members what exactly they want. Only then, we will recommend the right string for them.
Different string will suit different players’ needs. With regards to repulsion, BG66 Ultimax is definitely better than BG66. At the same time, smashes and net plays are awesome. On the other hand, where durability is concern, BG66 is fair better than BG66UM. This is because it has thicker gauges. Fortunately we have a few solutions to help extend BG66UM string’s durability.
Firstly, we suggest stringing it at a lower tension
Secondly, a professional stringing method is highly recommended. There must be no stack strings. By doing so, the durability will be increased..
At the beginning in Singapore, most players do not have much knowledge about strings. They do not realise that with proper stringing method, it can help increase the durability of the string.
Currently, some players does not know the difference between a professional and leisure stringing method. They only know that once their string has burst, bring to a racket stringer and get it stringed. Sad to say, they do not know that with professional and proper stringing method, their durability can be increased. Not only this, even repulsion is also better. Without doubt, these are the 2 important points that players are looking in their rackets.
Everyone gets to know about Yonex string BG66 Ultimax is because it is good in repulsion. Hence, a lot of players request for this string. Furthermore, Lee Chong Wei also string using BG66 Ultimax with a tension of 30lbs. A lot of other players will request for a lower tension at maybe 25lbs. Their mindset is “Oh, Lee Chong Wei is a high level player. I am just a leisure player so I should string at a lower tension as I think it should suit me”
In actual fact, is this string really suitable for you? Always remember that not all strings suit everyone. Each individual player has different playing level and style. On top of this, even the racket design will have different effect on different players. It does not mean that a high level player should always string the tension higher. Last but not least, always remember not to string at high tension if you are unable to handle. In the end, you will be disappointed with your performance during play.
We also would like to advise our members to put their rackets into a plastic bag when it is not in use. This can help slow down tension loss. Similarly, our Certified Stringer often like to explain to our members whenever the opportunity offers. At the same time, he will update whatever stringing knowledge with his members. He always believe in sharing with his members.
Finally in conclusion, through our experience, BG66 Ultimax badminton restring takes a longer time to complete. It is because the tension need to be expanded gently and consistently.
