This is Nanogy 99 badminton restring review by ERR Racket Restring Jurong.
First and foremost, Yonex NBG99 is one of Yonex’s thick string series. This string is able to provide medium repulsion and high control. This string will be most suitable for players who love to play attack. At the same time, it’s durability and control is also good.
Speaking of repulsion, the Yonex NBG99 can help you get the required repulsion even though the gauge thickness is 0.69m. Normally, we advise our members that the string tension must be higher than 25lb. It is because when the tension is above 25lb, it will provide high repulsion together with control at its best.
Review by Eric: Durability is good when restring at 28lbs. With regards to control, I feel that it is perfect for my play. Similarly, I feel that it is just nice for me when doing smashing and netting with my Astrox 99.
Below are Yonex Nanogy 99 badminton restring experiment DT tests at 28lbs:
First Day 62 – 61DT
Second Day 51 – 54DT
Third Day 43 – 48DT
By the way, we received a feedback from a leisure badminton player. He felt that the nanogy 99 string feels good in control especially when doing netting and drop. At the same time, the feel is medium. He also added that the hitting sound is great when performing smashing and lobbing.
With regards to durability, this string can last 3 months when using it thrice a week. Furthermore, he said that the tension drop is much slower than BG65. Out of curiosity, he tried the same racket model but with different tension, namely at 24lbs and 27lbs.
As for the one with tension at 24lbs, he said there were no repulsion at all. Furthermore, It also felt too soft and the hitting sound definitely does not live up to its rating of “8” as stated. As for the other one with tension at 27lbs, he felt very good when playing with it. Similarly, he mentioned that control wise, hitting sound and repulsion were all up to his satisfaction.
This confirms that NBG99’s string should be strung at a higher tension. By doing so, you will be able to get more repulsion and great hitting sound.
As a rule, whenever we do Yonex Nanogy 99 badminton restring, we will add on 10% pre-stretch on the horizontal string. Hence our members will find better hitting feels. Lastly, this stringing method is suitable for hard smashers and players who like to control their games.
Finally, most players will consult with our Certified Stringer, Mr Eric Chuar before sending their rackets over. However, if you are not our member or have no experience or idea with regards to string, do not worry.
Never choose a string basing on prices. Always choose the right string so that it can suit your playing style. There are always cheaper restring costs for either thin or thick strings to suit your playing style.
Sometimes, newcomers have had bad experience when they did their restringing at other shops. They could have paid a higher price and at the same time did not get good strings. Thus, they also did not enjoy playing with their rackets.
After some time, when they have come to us for restringing, they realise that they can choose the right string. Furthermore, we always advise them as to what type and brand of string will suit them. Lastly, our cost is always reasonable. We focus more on bringing up the standard of badminton restring rather than making a lot of money. Last but not least, we always share and advise our members whenever we have new information or knowledge on racket restring.
