    Luckily fast broken string doesn't necessary translate into better player else I will be way below average as I can't seem to break my string even after 6 months Need to use BG66 to boast my confident

    Getting back to my former play level of 20 years ago, slowly: after 3 weeks (3x week, 3 hours per) decided to put my MP 21 into reserve service and started using AT 250. Basically, love the AT all over. But, after a month smashed out the factory string job. Sooo.. restrung with BG 65 @ 23lbs and had a go last night. What happened to my beloved 250?!!! I lost 50% control, 25% power! I admit it wasn't my best night and will get a chance at redemption on Thurs. I have BG 80 coming soon... any opinions out there on the BG 80 and tension? I'm 80% technical but rely on power quite often too.

    Question

    So, I'm getting back up to speed fairly quickly after 20 years + and decided to put my outgrown MP 21 into reserve service after picking up an AT 250. Basically, love the 250 all over. But after 4 weeks (3 x week, @ 100 minutes per) smashed out the factory string job. Restrung with BG 65 @ 23lbs. What happened to my lovely AT? Lost 50% control and 25% power! Admittedly, it was not my best night of doubles and will get a second opinion on Thurs. I have BG 80 coming... any thoughts out there on BG 80 and tensions? I've moved up three levels and am verging on advanced - play 75% technique but rely on power quite often.

    BG80 is a nice sting but i think BG85 is better in terms of control and repulsion power.
    Most people feel that BG80's repulsion power is excellent but when i tried both i tend to feel that BG85's repulsion is better than BG80.

    Thanks Max - I'll give the 80 a try at 21 lbs and order some 85. I don't mind the expense of experimenting some (within reason) to get a comfortable combo as I get back in shape.

    i found this was caused by not letting the strings settle, if i used it freshly strung straight away in a game i found as u say it would break very very quicky, but if i used it for knock-up a couple of times before i played with it i found it lasts about 2-3months

    Bg80 at 26lbs lasts me about 2 months, and i play about 7 and a half hours a week. But i tend to switch between all my rackets.

    2-4 weeks
    I play about 8 hours a week at a competitive level, my rackets are strung at 25x27.5 and I use BG80.
    I'm a hardhitter aswell so my strings tend to break this often due to the large and repeted stress I put them through.

    My strings usually last me about a month. I use BG-80 at 25lbs. However, a month is not of consecutive use, I rotate between different rackets. If I were to only use one racket, then I would guess that my strings would last about 2-3 weeks.
