    I just restrung my MP100 with bg 85 strings at 23 lbs. I've heard that bg 85 only lasts about 3 weeks when this setup is used by a good hard hitting player. I do not know if I fall into this category so I don't know how long my strings will last. I usually play recreationaly with a bit of competition in school. I can and usually smash with a good pop. My playing isn't very intensive but i do play intensively occasionally, like when playing club administrators or singles. It took me about a year and a half to break bg65 on my mp100, keeping in mind i took a few moths getting used to the raquet. Will my setup only last me a few weeks or can i expect at least a few good months with it?

    It depends on a LOT of factors, like environment, hitting style (flat/slice), playing frequency, racket/grommet condition, racket care ...

    It's extremely hard to predict, dude. Let us know though :D

    If it took you 1.5 years to break bg65, my advice is to go for bg85! It is a very nice string.

    BG65 lasts me about 4-5 weeks, bg85 lasts exactly 2 weeks or shorter. I am now back to bg65, bg85 is just too expensive for me...
