    the last two, my string broke on the central cross, maybe due to i didn't apply 10% higher as i should do before.
    the main is still on good condition...

    My strings break abovecentre, cross.

    Why do some people break their mains? my mains show no sign of wear and tear. only the crosses, due to the mains cutting into them.

    Normally, the sweet spot is where most people hit their shots and that's where the main is. This place is easy to break because of the frequent hard smashes given and the collision of strings after each hit. Wait.. did my statement even make sense?

    so a bit off topic but do you guys think that slippery strings are more durable since they slip more, there is less friction between the mains and the crosses??

    also, do you guys think that slicing or brushing the shuttle causes more damage to the strings? because if you think about it, when you slice the shuttle, the strings take in a lot of friction to put spin on the bird.

    any ideas??

    From reading this thread it seems to me that there are two main breakage point. Slap bang in the middle or at 10 oclock.

    For the middle, well, you have a right arm like a tree trunk and hit huge smashes and there's nothing to be done about it, you just have to shell out for new string.

    But for the 10 oclock break. Would it not be possible to string with 3 pieces of string? For example string the mains at say 24lbs, string all the crosses cept the top two or three at 26 and then a third piece of string and drop back to 24lbs for the top two or three crosses? Maybe it would be cheaper to replace too?

    My problem is that I love BG85 at high tensions, but it's horribly fragile and one of the places I play is really icey in winter which doesn't help at all. BG85 seems to be a warm weather string, they don't even sell it here. I'm presently using BG80 at a much lower tension than I like, but now that the worst of winter is over I'm thinking of changing. There was no other solution, the BG85 in the cold was lasting like 20 points, I'm a mishitter, it usually breaks at the 10 oclock cross.

    Default Where does your string normally break?

    My string usually breaks at the 10-12th position from the top (the 10th horizontal string).

    Does it mean anything?

    well, if you look, there is a thread/ poll on this.

    However, i havent seen many cross strings break as compared to mains. maybe you slice a lot?

    I do slice, but not as much as the 'normal' shots. Or does it also matter how the string was strung?
