Hi everyone. I'm curious about one thing. I now know more and more friends from playing badminton and the stories I heard from them, their strings break very frequently, ranging from a few weeks to 3 months. But for me, a bg66 can last me for more than 1 year without breakage. I would say my standard of play is similar, or somewhat higher, to those friends who breaks their strings very frequently, but why my strings can last so long without any means of breakage. Of course, the feel isn't as good due to tension loss. My racket was Kason Spry S7 with bg66 @ 26lbs. Been playing with it for more than a year, never changed the string. Then recently I bought a Protech Absolute 360 with bg66 ultimax @ 30lbs. After a few hours of playing, I noticed some part of the string shows breakage. I'm not sure whether that occurs during the stringing process(didn't really check the racket thoroughly after it being strung by the shop owner, my bad) or occurs after I used it to play. But even with the breakage, the string hasn't break completely and I'm still playing with it for like more than 15 hours already, and it still haven't break. Please advice. I'm a heavy smasher. My miss-hitting IMHO i would say is 5%-10%. So, what is the reason my strings stays "healthy" for such a long time as compared to other people although my standard is quite similar to the others? Thank you.
