    lol i dont know man i dont think i hit super hard or anything...well thats just me :rolleyes: but yeah the string isnt breaking around the side of the racquet (which is usually caused by shanking) it will break right in the sweet spot so yeah legit break and all.

    it's quite expensive here in germany to restring (20eur) and my tension isnt very high (25lbs, play 8hrs/week) so normally i restring once every 5 months.

    I am the same, for the last year I haved played about 4 times a week, usually only for 2 hours per session. Before that I played for about six years just once a week. I have my tension at at 25lbs and have never broken a string! :)

    I guess that we must both always hit the sweetspot! ;)

    lazy to read the first few pages of post :D

    but i believe that it is related to how often you play.
    when training 4 times a week for 3 hours each training, my BG-68 Ti lasted only 1 to 1.5 month.

    but now, i dont train as much, only 2 times a week for 2 hours each RECREATIONAL playing. and my BG-68 Ti is still smashing hard for 3months already. moreover, no fluffy fluffy at all :D

    however, the similarity is that BG-68 Ti will start to "change sound" after around 3 weeks.



    i tried an "ulu ulu" string with no labels on it 2 years ago (ok, not i tried, but i gave it to my coach and didnt ask for the type of string i wanted) which i suspect to be gosen string. believe it or not, it snapped during my SECOND hit (it was a full strength cross-court slice-smash) after i got my racket back from my coach. it burst on a little on the left (or right) side of the centre.

    fortunately i didnt have to pay for the subsequent string :D

    i did not vote before because all my life playing badminton before, my strings never broke but i guess that might have been due to the fact that i play a lot less frequently before. last week i broke my bg 66 string. it lasted more than six months but this is the first time i had to restring because of string breakage. i think the fact that i play three times a week contributes to it. :)

    BG80 usually in half or if I don´t slice as much, perhaps even 1 or 1 and a half weeks :)
