    My BG-65 finally broke near the top of the frame when warming up. So that lasted almost to this day, exactly 1 year. Talk about durability lol.

    we've only got to yy BG65, BG65 Ti, BG 66, BG80 ,BG 6, and Ashaway MP(supposed to be .66mm) around here...for me
    BG 65 ->6-8 months.
    BG 65Ti ->7 months(only used once, too slippery 4 me!).
    BG 80 -> never used it..
    BG 66 ->2 months (except for once , it broke rite after stringing:mad:).
    BG 6 ->3 months(like this string very much. I get it for <2$, since shop owner has loads of them left behind, no 1 except me buys them here:eek:.here in BC also i seldom see BG 6 even mentioned:rolleyes: ...
    Ashaway MP-> seriously i don't think this string is .66 mm. Well lasted for 5 months for me....

    Reading thru all of this , it seems pretty obvious we need better string. Almost anything reasonably thin and taken above 25 pounds or so seems to have such a short lifespan its bordering on ridiculous.

    Or could it be that string makers don't want to make a string that lasts, more money in selling lots of breakable string than selling fewer unbreakable ones?
