BG-80 is my "number 2" string - I would give it 4/5 for power, 4/5 for touch, 3/5 for durability and 3/5 for holding tension.
The rough texture is completely different from the Ti range and makes it a bit more difficult to string, as it likes to twist more and cuts through mains when pulling crosses.
Power is very good, only slightly down on BG-85 and BG66, and the sound is pretty much identical to BG-85. Touch is also good - this was the reason I switched from BG-65Ti.
Tension falls off quickly initially, but stabilizes after a few hours' play. Durability is average to slightly above average (but, again, it might be because of my high tension).

Very good string for all around type players. It has alot of power which is useful for smashing and net play. the sound it makes is very petrifying. this string does not lose tension easily, it took me atleast about 48 hours of play to actually feel the difference in the tension. the sound it makes when you hit the shuttle cock properly is very petrifying. i would recommend this to those players who are all around type players, because it has the proper power to make a smash hurt like hell and to make the perfect net shot, and also good to make people run.
