    BG80, 31lbs.
    3 weeks up to today, a lot of fraying. (probably won't survive the week.)

    6-8 hours a week.

    weak smasher (fwiw).

    i've since replaced the bg65 because tension lost is too great and didn't stop at all, now i've been playing with Ashaway PowerGut65 on my nanoray300, BLX Recon, and BLX Vertex.

    i also have bg70 on a dunlop biometics and it still crisp

    BRS 12N
    NBG99 26lbs => 1-2months
    BG66um 28x26lbs => 2 weeks

    It would be nice to v a graph (like google doc) to resume all infos/stats on strings per month per tension per racket infos... imo

    First time with a bg66 lasted 1 month
    Bg65 seems to last indefinitely at lower tensions
    Just tried bg66ti for about a month, but will be cutting it as i dont like the feel of it

    BG66UM @ 26x29 lasts me around 3 weeks, playing around 20 hours a week recreational level and 10 hours a week at a higher level (much more smashing, less trick shots)

    Ashaway zymax 65 lasts usually just a few days less.

    Zymax 62 broke as soon as they would put the cross at 29 lbs lol. They tried it 3 times, then called me and I told them to just put bg66um instead. Good thing I didn't have to pay for the 3 broken zymax 62 lol.

    zymax67 @ 24x26lbs yellow, going 1 month. after following this thread since i responded the first time i am led to believe that either i am so good that i don't ever mishit, or that i don't hit anywhere hard enough to actually break the strings, i think it's the latter that's more reasonable

    Bg65ti @24lbs on arc z-slash - forever. Had to cut as it became loose.

    Bg66um @24lbs on z-force: three months.
    Not a heavy smasher, play three times a week approx 2 hours.

    BG66UM: 2-3 weeks max before I cut
    ZM65: 3-4 weeks max before I cut
    ZM62: 1-2 weeks before it snaps
    Adipower Pro: 2-4 weeks before I cut
    VS850: 2-4 weeks before I cut

    I'm more of a control/counter attack player so how the stringbed feels to me is very important. I lose my touch when the strings lose their liveliness/crispness. All tensions are ~24lbs, not higher than 25lbs, not lower than 23lbs.
