    If TrueBlue does go down in tension, I would recommend it be gradually, in 1-2lbs. increments and not more. Dropping in tension too fast can be a waste of string. Just my experience.

    I agree. You may end up cutting away your strings after that.

    I just want to cry!

    Normally my strings only last for 2 weeks 3 at the most). Then are strung at 28 pounds so that may be an important contributing factor. I used to think that I may hve been mishitting the shuttle but for as long as I can remember except on one occasion, it has always been pne of the middle two strings that snapped. Also, one of these two usually starts to fray round about the sweetspot before they go.

    Now I am seriously considering purchasing a stringing machine. Otherwise I am going to be broke soon. It is so expensive to get rackets restrung in Britain. Absolutely ridiculous!

    My low tension strings stay at maximum performance until they break. They retain playability even when they are cracking up everywhere. The only time I cut my strings is when changing tension or because the string is new and play very badly - that's before I realise some strings need a very lengthy settling-in time of up to a week in the bag. The BG80's I strung for the average hard hitters lasts for 3 months or until they break their rackets, which ever happens first.

    Hm you guys really break strings that rarely? I break mine once every 2 weeks, using BG-80 with high tension though. I broke my Ashaway Micropower strings that often as well though. Hm, that must be somehow connected with the fact that which shuttlecocks you use, feather or plastic ones though.

    So every time you play you break 3 strings?

    Time to switch strings.

    Hi guys, i was wondering how long can BG65Ti @ 24lbs last if used for 5-8 hours per week? Also, how do u considered that the tension drops?

    What about BG68Ti? Will it last longer than BG65Ti?

    From my experience, BG68Ti don't last very well, definitely not as long as BG80.

    Probably 2 months or so.

    No, BG68Ti is thinner than BG65Ti and it is not as durable.

    One of my BG66 just snapped today, after 5 months of usage.
    (4 rackets rotation, I play 2-3 times a week, 3 hours a day, so it's not bad)

    but BG68Ti and BG80 is having the same thickness? How long can BG80 last? BG80 last the longest? Among BG80, BG68Ti, BG85?

    Dang! I wish BG66 would last me two weeks. Then I would use it exclusively.

    well, if you rotate rackets, then it will not break so fast

    Yes, with BG-66 it does break that fast with a 3 racket rotation...I do much better with BG-80 and it's good enough.
