    if you 'search' the forum you'll over a 100 people asked "what tension/string matches my racket" and the general answer is always "whatever you want..."

    just string it bg80 at 24lbs and see how things go...it's generally seen as a "can't go wrong" set-up for people who aren't really into the whole stringing-thing...(actually, I kinda like bg80 at 24lbs)

    If the string breakage is NOT due to mis-hit or bad string job, consider lower the tension on the next try. Maybe BG65 (more durable string compare to BG80) @ 23 or 24lb, or if you prefer thinner string (BG80 etc) then maybe start with 22 or 23 range.

    bg-65ti is durable enough, just 26lbs and u broke it in 20 minutes?? maybe u should try another stringer next time, if u love smash then u already choose right string one more, i wonder in what position the string is broke? centre or near top? main or cross?

    IMO, U have to check the grommets before stringing. My ns9000 happened to snap the string due to broken grommet. As to the tension, I would recommand 2 or 3 pounds above your other rackets.

    1 or 2lbs more?? but wouldn't that increase the chances of breaking the string??

    Well technically yes, especially on mis-hits. Performance or durability, your choice.

    I had my fair share of strings breaking quickly and I'm using 0.66mm strings. Mainly occured from a broken grommet. Other than that it last well at 26 lbs.
