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.

Currently using NS 95 Li ning , this my 3rd month tension 30, now drop to 25.
End of the month not burst will still change. As I want to try BG 80 or 65 TI

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.
