    Head Super Power 69-approx. 40 doubles games.
    Zymax 67-1 game. It was perhaps a mishit but will try again.

    Next up is Ashaway Micro Legend(.69 mm)

    Update: Ashaway ML lasted 4 games before it snapped too
    ..I just strung my AMP 95 with BG 70 pro @25X27 lbs..
    I guess I'll hv to stick with more durable strings now..But I'm glad I own a stringing machine..

    Thumbs down less than 3 hours play

    I broke mine in less than 3 hours play.
    BG66 at 26x26lbs.

    On the other hand, BG80 and nanogy98 will last for a few months.

    one of pro stringer I met told me that if it takes so long to break your string, there are only two reasons:

    1. as you said. :P.
    2. you always hit the shuttercock at the right spot.

    Same here, broke my strings within 3 hours in a tournament.
    Before that I broke my strings within 2 weeks or approx. 10 hours.
    I have decided to alternate between rackets so I use the newly strung for practice and the other for games so I can increase the mileage a bit.

    BG65Ti last around 3-4 months
    NBG95 last around 2.5-3 months
    BG80 last around 2-2.5 months
    BG85 last around 2 months

    All strung at around 24-25 lbs, and on average around 6-7hrs per week.

    I don't know if I'm really bad or what, because BG 65 at 21 lbs lasted me 2 years. I play 2-7 hours per week. I thought mishits are suppoesed to break strings easier.

    It's hard to break strings at low tension. Plus it will be even lower then 21lbs after 2 years. Dramatically lower

    yep, it would probaly be around 16-17lbs by the time you broke it

    used to use BG-66 but after it broke twice on me. they were newly strung at 26lbs and only 1hour of play each then i switched to BG-80 and still using it after mths of playing. but can see that it is going to break soon as frills are forming at different intersection of the string

    Yo, any advise if my BG66 string 26 tension can last for 6 months...
    the string does not snap should I cut the string and replace with new
    string?
    The tension dropped but still can play more than 6 months...
