    mishit just off the centre on the mains. normally at the top portion of the head.
    But regularly my strings burst in the centre (combination of cross & mains at once) after wear & tear.

    Man I just broke three 3 strings on 3 rackets in one game. It was like a span of 6 points. All were BG 65 at 22-23 tension. When string and tension lasts longer?

    If you can break BG65 at that tension that quickly. It usually means one or more of a few things. You're mishitting and no badminton string no matter how thick can prevent that. Or your climate is really dry right now so strings are brittle. Or your rackets might have bad grommets already. There's nothing wrong with the string.

    However if you were looking for something more out of your rackets by trying a different string then based off your current string I would suggest ZM70.

    The Voltric 70 broke in the middle, the Nanospeed broke near the top of the frame, and the arc saber 002 broke in the middle. The arc saber's sting was very tender and still had the original factory string on it. I shouldn't have even tried to play with it. The Voltric was strung a month a go. I don't how I would mishit. They all broke on easy High clear returns. Now it is going to cost me $60 to $70 to fix all of the them. This hasnt happened before.

    I think that you probably just used the rackets pretty equally. It used to happen to me. When you switch off between rackets, the strings wear at similar rates and this was probably a special case, where the strings broke at all the same time. Cold weather might contribute to your string breaks as well.

    The thing is I only use the Voltric 70 for play. The Nanospeed was strung in September and hasn't been used since Early October. The Arc Saber 002 is a cheap racket and hasn't been strung since since I bought it two years ago. I saw that the strings were very worn out before i picked it up to continue the game. I really shouldn't have used it. We were winning 20-16 and that's when my Voltric broke, then my Nanospeed, then my Arc Saber when it was 20-20. I borrowed someone else's racket to finish the game but was really nervous of breaking their string too. We lost 20-22! Bad Luck for me!
