    Really, it depends on the strings...

    Like, if i use BG-6 with 2pounds tension, that will last me FOREVER
    If i use BG-66 with 30pounds, i can break it in half a set...

    But 6 months as being the top? I'm quite impressed... It usually lasts only 2mths or so, and then the strings start to loosen up a bit... Like rubber! The more u use it/ stretch it, the more elastic it is... xD

    My BG65 lasts forever. Had it for so long that i forgot when i had my racquet strung.

    My BG66 lasted for only about a week.

    i just got BG 9, and is expected to snap soon.

    My BG-80 is going on it's 5th month now. It's amazing My BG-65Ti lasted like a year... It just wouldn't break, but the tension didn't hold so I switched.

    Post Badminton string

    Well, I am a school team player. I use Nanos 9000. I strung it with the Nanogy string at a tension of 24lbs.(that suits me best) The string lasted me 6 months before snapping. It is good for smacking. Now using BG 70 at 24lbs. Had beeen using for around 2 months still going well. My advice to intermidiate is to us BG 70(alrounder) and for beginners and that those lloking for value BG 65(Durable and cheap).

    I used NBG98 at 24lbs/26lbs on my NS9000X and it lasted 6 weeks so i am impressed with the NBG98 durability compared to BG66 which lasted 4 weeks at the same tension.

    I am going to try BG6 later and see how that compares.

    I hope you didn't leave the strings on after you snapped them.

    It's just a camera's distortion.

    Default badminton strings

    Well as for beginners bg65 is the best. It can last you quite a long while. But its not that powerful. So its no good for offensive players. Its repulsion and durablity is great.

    Lin Dan uses it quite well..

    im just surprised that LD isnt using BG80. His smash would go off the roof!
