Herewith BG80 racket stringing review:-
For a start, BG80 is known as the best all rounder string in Yonex’s string series. It is also the most popular string choice for many competitive and professional players. Likewise, 80% of professional players are using BG80 during their international tournaments. For example, international tournaments like All England Open. They all agreed that this string provide them with good repulsion and durability.
In term of court play experiences, BG80 gives more repulsion during clearing and smashing. These are done with little effort but the result is more powerful. Needless to say, you only need a little strength and energy to clear to baseline. Yonex has advertised that when you play using BG80, you will have the feeling that it is “hard feeling”. You can feel this “hard feeling” when hitting the shuttlecock. At the same time, you can also feel the solid sound. Ultimately this is what most players wants to hear.
At the same time, we have also received feedbacks that some players who were using BG65 have switched over to using BG80. The reason is because they feel that BG80 is able to provide more control in their game. As for its durability, it is also acceptable.
Review by Eric:- I used to do Yonex BG80 badminton restringing at 28lbs for my N80ll. I can feel that it provides me with more strength when smashing.
Below are BG80 badminton stringing experiment DT tests at 28lbs.
First Day 64 – 62DT
Second Day 54 – 57DT
Third Day 51 – 56DT
This string will provide more explosive power and repulsion. For your information, this string is considered one of Yonex’s high-end strings. To make sure that its performance is perfect, Yonex has spent a lot time and effort in the process of manufacturing this string.
First and foremost, the control and repulsion aspect is one of Yonex BG80’s main selling point. If you look carefully into the string material of BG80, you will notice that the surface layer is notched shape. This causes more friction between the strings. In doing so, “shuttlecock will bite the shuttlecock” a longer time.
Therefore, this friction is able to create more repulsion for slice, drop or spin to a net with ease. Furthermore, it also provide more power when hitting the shuttlecock. Based on our stringing record, BG80 is the best string for game control.
With regards to durability, BG80 can last a longer time if you are able to hit the sweet spot most of the time. In many cases, some players find that the string does not burst and it could be due to the tension is too low. This might be the fault of the stringer for having used the wrong stringing method.
The quality of BG80 badminton stringing will be much better if a digital stringing machine is used. The reason being, we will normally use pre-stretch method. By using this pre-stretch method, the tension will drop slower. ERR always use the world’s no. 1 Yonex Protech 8, digital stringing machine for all their badminton restringing.
Similarly, before we perform BG80 badminton stringing, we will make sure that the machine has been calibrated. This means that we will use our calibrated tension calibrator to check before doing stringing. Why? We want to ensure that the pulled tension accuracy is there. Normally if a thick string’s tension is not consistent, it will easily become “spongy”. When this happens, you will not feel good or comfortable during play.
We found that the best tension for BG80 is around 25lbs. At this tension, BG80’s performance is at its best. If the tension is lower, the string tend to snap easily. Sometimes a member will bring in a racket which states that it can only support tension up to 22lbs. At the same time, he wants to string using BG80. We will then suggest to him to use another type of string. At the same time, we will also suggest to him to use a thinner string. If he insist on using BG80, we are sure that he will not be able to play well when using this racket.
Lastly, we have had members who had no idea what string to use when their string has burst. Our Certified Stringer, Mr Eric is always around to advise them on the types of string and tension that will suit them best.
