    Well I train (on court) minimum 2-3 hours a day alot of the time it's more, and yes I do string them myself have a stringing machine so it's all good get my strings pretty cheap from Asia or if yonex gives me any here and there with stuff. Might need to restring more often soon espically with tournaments coming up and all.

    I do that for my own rackets. I review/test so many strings that I very rarely break any nowadays; they usually get cut out when I get bored or test the next one. Having said this, I did bust a bed last Friday during a test - my very first since the Z62 went on my Arc Z in April (yes, April).

    I recently conclude that BG65 at 31lbs plus minus 1lb (initial stringing specification is at 33lbs which then loosens and stays constant) lasts me 6 months of regular play before fraying starts to appear on the sweet spot and I'm forced to cut the string before it snaps.

    That sound right, mine broke last week also after about 5 and a half month at 28lbs. I wonder what racket did you use?

    i think the best string i've used so far is yonex bg 66 all england string. though it's a little costly but it has the best feel and it doesn't really last for a hard smasher like me. 1.5 months and it's gone. that's also i play just 2x/week and perhaps very few among all of u guys. and it stilld oesn't last.

    best string that held up for >6 months is this pro ace string. strung on my ashaway racket at 26lb. > 6 months already. hasn't shown sign of breaking yet. but maybe as well i haven't used this racket for ages. haha

    I have a racquet strung 31x33 (lbs) with NG95 and it has lasted me 6 months so far, but it is fraying and I am going to restring it this weekend.
    My other racquet I barely use has BG65Ti and it has lasted nearly a year now at 28lbs (strung by a friend so don't know the crosses and mains). It isn't at 28lbs anymore, and I am going to restring that this weekend too.
    Before these 2 racquets I normally break my strings once a month.

    I've had to switch from bg80 to bg 65/65-ti's as I was snapping every month. I'm on about a month on my racquets right now, strung all 26x28 or higher.

    I have experienced winter effect here for the string.

    I normally use Zymax 62 and NBG98, @26x28lbs. ZM 62 will last about 6-8x 3-hr sessions, and NBG 98 about 10-12x 3-hr sessions. However, over the last few months, I could only get ~2x 3-hr sessions on ZM 62, and about 6x 3-hr sessions for NBG98. I normally don't get mis-hits, and break in the upper-middle section of string bed.
