    The current results are:

    less than 2 weeks. = 91 (6.18%)

    2 weeks - 1 month = 214 (14.54%)

    1-2 months = 278 (18.89%)

    2-3 months = 258 (17.53%)

    3-6 months = 257 (17.46%)

    more than 6 months = 374 (25.41%)

    Talking to a friend about these results, she thought that with clearly the highest number of votes for the category "more than 6 months" it must be the most common lifespan for strings. And on the face of it, some may be led to think that at first glance.

    However in correcting her I said, if we read it another way, it means that for every 100 people surveyed, only 25 said their strings lasted >6months and 75 said their strings lasted <6months!

    there's no such thing as a "common lifespan".

    lifespan of strings heavily depends on 3 things:
    type of string, tension, level/style of play.

    Yes, we know that!

    But refering to this poll, when I said "common" I was alluding to the category that had the most votes.

    Since I switched to BG80 and VS850 I can't actually remember breaking a string so far. I just end up cutting them once they fray too much. Other strings like BG66UM and ZM65 lasted a few months for me.

    Funny thing is that my coach used one of my VS850 and broke it in 4 days, although 3-4 days is standard for him. I've seen him break strings during training and it's always around the sweet spot. He did string my racquets at the same tension as his...so I guess he just hits harder a lot more consistently

    Edit: just remembered that he showed me his broken BS09 recently, snapped at the top of the handle from a smash

    I have been playing almost exclusively with NBG-98 - my string life is around 2 months or so, and play 5 times a week or so, sometimes more. String is strung at 22/24 lbs. My son hits a lot harder and he will get about 6 weeks but plays only 2-3 times a week. My wife plays 1-2 times a week and her racquet lasts about 11 months or so, although I sometimes use her racquet for doubles. The strings will start to fray, but still lasts a few weeks before snapping.

    I play badminton 5 times a week, 2 hours per session. My Arc Z Slash was strung with BG66U and only lasted for 2 weeks. After that, I changed to Nanogy 95 and it lasted for 7 weeks- yesterday it snapped. Now I change to Nanogy 99, and we'll see how long it will last.

    I'm pretty surprised that so many people play their strings for over 2 months, I mean this is almost 60%...
