    So i finally snapped my strings on my arc 10 ^^ and now im in search of a new set of strings >_>
    i've been using bg-70 pro at 22 or 23 lbs (i forgot) for a year and i've been deciding to either use bg-80, bg-66 or bg-65 at 24lbs. But the problem is i want to know about the tension loss, or if i have to string lower tension to get the effect to be the same or relevent as bg-65 as 24lbs.
    so.. can you guys help me out decide? If i use bg-66 how long approx. do you think would it last me, and the price differences between each.
    Please and Thank You :)!

    BG-65s will not retain tension very long.

    On the other hand, BG-66 and BG-80 will not last very long at 24lbs. They will probably break within a few weeks depending on your strength.

    If you want to retain tension, BG-70pro is a good choice. Usually its priced very similarly to BG-65 and BG-66/80. In the end, a dollar or two's difference isn't really significant.

    Or you could pay almost double for Nanogy-95, which should be more durable (in terms of tension holding I don't know) than BG-65 or BG-70pro.

    I do not think BG80 is that fragile. I had my BG80 strung at 25lbs lasting me 4 months. It probably dropped to around 23lbs on its last few days of service. The racket is restrung at 26lbs and is holding up well for the last 1+ month. I play between 5 - 10 hours weekly, averaging around 7 hours.
