It depends on how long you play per week/month. It also is dependent on how hard you hit and what shots you hit most often. Slices will wear strings down and so on. I don't believe type of shuttle is a big factor. There isn't a universal term of lifespan.

OMG, this tiny little woman is eating my BG65 for breakfast. She broke it in 1 month. She plays lots. Neverthless she is under observation now before I do anything about it.

Had BG65ti for 3 months now. Going to cut it and put Nanogy 98 on.

I play doubles 8-9 hours per week and my strings (BG88-t1, CBG-100) usually last about 2 months on average. At least that was true with my MPs (88 and99).
But this year I've switched to NS 9k/S and NS 7700 after both MPs gasped their last breaths. Both were ordered prestrung with BG88-ti @ 24lbs and lifetime was pretty much the same as usual.
Since I still had a reserve of four packs of CBG-100, I tried it out once the prestrung strings gave out...
The first one broke during warm up
The second one broke on the stringing machine
The third one broke after four hours of play
The last one broke during warm up
All four broke near the grommets (either 9 or 12 o'clock - my strings usually break in the middle of the main) and the string felt like it stretched a lot during smashes and clears (especially compared with BG88-ti).
Should one conclude that CBG-100 and NS are incompatible ???
BTW, BG88-ti also seems to be discontinued in the latest Yonex catalog...

Well, I know at least I did not mishit the one that broke on the stringing machine
And the stringer did replace some grommets while stringing...
But I've never had this problem before with BG88-ti ...or with CBG-100 previously on my MP rackets for that matter...even though I'm pretty sure my mishits during warmup must have been pretty similar in those other occasions...
But this combination (CBG-100 and NS9k) did feel quite different from my previous experience with MP88-99. It felt like the string stretched WAAYYY more on a smash than usual. I found myself checking the racket and string after smashes to see if everything was OK...
Keep in mind that CBG-100 was introduced before the NS series. That's why I'm wondering if they are compatible (the Japanese catalog mentions CBG-100 only with NS6k and MP 80 and favors mostly the Nanogys otherwise).
Anyone else had this experience with that combination?

my nanogy 98 broke after 1.5 months of use. poor durability compared to my other strings which take 3+months to break. Now i am trying nanogy 95

Have you tested the nanogy95 yet? as I am going to use that string this friday,gonna get my racquet restrung :P, so far review of the BG80 is very good, and for the NBG95 its good for everything like the BG80 BUT for net plays not so good... I can't belive its going to cost me NZ$35 to get my racquet restrung! Its outrageous!! (\_/) ... so yea.. i have to make a good choice right now... BG80 or NBG95? hmmm....

I used the NBG95 a few times now and i think it is more of an all-rounder string compared to BG80 where it is more for smashing players.
