    Thanks Precrime! I was actually going to message you to ask for your in depth review!

    I've been using it for the last 15 hours of play and have really enjoyed it. Smash defence lift has been effortless. My smashes sound excellent and appear to be powerful. I am toiling with the idea of buying a reel but just waiting to see how often i should replace it. The last session I had wasn't feeling as crisp but that could also just be fatigue and poor technique on my end.

    it's strung in a 3U 100zz at 26.

    Haha very similar to me. I am using 3U 100zz at 25! So yeah, I'll ping you when my video review is out, as i think would be very helpful for you!

    Just to add, we all know BG66UM is only good for one session (a little facetious). Just seeing whether EB63 falls in the same category or is a little better on the wallet.

    I'm an aggressive smash heavy player predominantly rear court doubles.
    Thank you

    How's that video looking! Any conclusions yet? I tried out Li-ning number 1 - i do love its power and sound - however its so slippery that by net game has gone out the window.

    Durability is better than Ex-Bolt but that's about it.

    I like this hybrid and the durability surprised me. It lasts so long.

    notice in your latest video you increase from 25 to 26 lb "Racket: 100zz Exbolt 63 @ 26 pounds" was it because the durability was pretty good so you increase? you say got it from online store joybadminton?

    Nah more like technique was better and I wanted more control and a higher skill ceiling for slightly more power. Durability has been fine, haven't had string break on me yet

    So I bought exbolt 63 a while back and was reluctant to use them as I've been a loyal Nanogy 98 user for a while. I've also never had luck with hard strings. I just love the banana smashing feel you get with soft strings.

    Well, let me tell you, I was dead wrong. These strings are the best. I feel like my smashes are more powerful, my slices have more control, my back hand clears are effortless. The only drawback is that not hitting the sweet spot feels like crap, but that's a small price to pay when you can smash and slice better.

    I absolutely love this string. I ordered a set and strung my old vt80 at 28 lb. usually use nanogy, which i also really like but this string tops anything I’ve tried ( and as i string, I’ve tried them all!)
    Great control and power. I will definitely be buying a 200m reel. Not sure on the durability yet as I’ve only played 4 hours. Highly recommend trying this out

    I am a stringer. Tried almost all the strings out there. Normally string bg66um for my sons 4 rackets (which he rotates) and usually needed to restring on average 1 racket per weeks. All 4 rackets now stringed with Exbolt63 7 weeks ago and still not breaking/ not showing any fraying att all. Training/matches on average 10-14 hours/week. Exbolt63 has proved as amazingly durable so far.

    I stringed about 10 Rackets for Players i know very well since November 2021. Ist a bit early for a full conclusion, but my opinion actually ist the same. Durability seems like really good.

    But can someone confirm that the String ist 0,63mm thick? Some people wrote its thicker.

    This string is great its slightly better than ultimax but ultimax's sound is way far better the this string is not suitable for beginner and about the tension loss after 2 weeks it became very dull so its better to do pre stretch 15-20%
