    Pretty much near the centre of the main/cross.

    So lame, it's about to break again, the strings are showing tear and wear. Noo.. not again.

    well lets see my first racquet the string broke near the frame..how it happened i dont know. my second racquet the 1st time it broke it was near the frame and the 2nd time it broke it was outside the frame, when it broke outside i coudl tell it was going to break i actually sat down and watched it break it just pulled itself apart...rather entertaining cause quite a few people gathered around...weird but still, well i wonder where it will break this time...well i hope it does not break anytime soon.

    Main strings near the top of the frame.

    I've always broken main strings, never cross.

    If your strings, especially the middle ones, tend to move, or if you can see signs of wear in your strings, it is probably due to low string tension. If you string at high tension, the strings will not move at all except minimally after a sharp sliced smash, and signs of wear are not visible except when you move the string with your finger, with more than normal force, to reveal any hidden wear.

    Its true, i have never broken the cross strings either, maybe i can stry trying using 68ti as cross and bg80 as main. Should get me more bounce without loosing too much durability =D wha u guys think?

    Nope, BG80 lasts much longer. I never trust 68ti these days

    Never broke a string yet. I usually replace em' the moment I notice lower performance.

    i was looking at my strings on my ti-10 the other day and i noticed that near the sweet spot area that the strings are starting to wear out the main seems to be "digging into" the cross, so it looks likie the cross is going to snap soon...that's a natural thing right? or should i just cut them? i got them strung @ 23 with BG65 and it's still pretty tight @ around 21-22~ish

    If you smash a lot, it will break in 1 or 2 game anyway. If you are a defence player, cut it because the string has lost it's tension already...

    Broke a cross string for the first time. It's in the sweet spot area. Other than that, it's always either a main near the frame (majority of the time) or in the center area (more recently).
