    My BG85 outer jacket on my NS9K-x started to break 2 weeks ago. Origional tension was 22X24 lb.I tried for 2 hr yesterday morning doing slice drop and smashing hoping to break it. Guess what, it did not break on the 2 crosses where the jacket is breaking. Now the jacket is totally broken around the 2 corsses and 1 main. I think I am getting OLD and WEAK...

    And no, I am not cutting the string this time. I want to see who break first, the string or my mental.:crying:

    Lol... String only snaps when u least wanted (i.e. during a competitive game, running out of spare string, etc). :D Next session, don't think "I will break it today", but think "I will let it last for the next 3 months", then, boom... :D
