    Will hopefully break faster at 24lbs. I hate loose strings...
    BG65 mostly lasts me for 8 months or so.

    lol i dont know man i dont think i hit super hard or anything...well thats just me but yeah the string isnt breaking around the side of the racquet (which is usually caused by shanking) it will break right in the sweet spot so yeah legit break and all.

    BG25 ah hum we dont get that string here but i would just have to order some from somewhere, whats the thickness? 22lbs na i dont like playing with anything lower than 24lbs thats why i string higher at 26lbs for good feel with playing.

    it's quite expensive here in germany to restring (20eur) and my tension isnt very high (25lbs, play 8hrs/week) so normally i restring once every 5 months.

    I am the same, for the last year I haved played about 4 times a week, usually only for 2 hours per session. Before that I played for about six years just once a week. I have my tension at at 25lbs and have never broken a string!

    I guess that we must both always hit the sweetspot!
