Did you use this string on your LF machine at this tension as well?
I dont want to hazard a guess, but sounds like you're right that your clamps may be squashing the string causing it to tear apart prematurely
Sorry I'm not much help, i have not tried the mp string from ashaway, and unaware of its characteristics; in regards to stretching quality & overall durability.
Perhaps others who have tried the string, can weigh in on the situation?

Yes I've used this string on my Laserfibre before. The funny thing is... when I used it, when I was starting the crosses, I forgot to make an extra loop for the starting knot since the string was so thin. The whole thing went inside the grommet so I tied another starting knot for safe measure. When I repulled the first main, the string popped, luckily I had enough string since it was the crosses.
So far I have two speculations. One is that the string is so brittle it's damaged during prestretching I do. That explains why of 5 string jobs, 3 broke on the end of the piece of string. The other 2 probably broke because I didn't adjust the fixed clamps properly at first but I took a lot of time to adjust it afterwards and the problem didn't seem to be with the fixed clamps.
The other is that perhaps my crank isn't calibrated. I remember stories on the forum about people recieving their machine calibrated 20+ lbs higher than the meter.

I've been using the .66mm MP Ti string bought from mybadmintonstore for the past ~3 months. Though i haven't had any problems with string snapping during stringing (using my Egnas ST250, i don't prestretch strings), though i've had lots more string breakages than normal during playing. I find these strings even more fragile than the BG66 I used to use.

Yeah they are fragile stuff but they play so well. It's addictive!
I'll try not prestretching although the coil will probably bug me a lot.

Nice machine. I am sure you can really go fast with this one. 30 minutes should be no problem from now on with pre-stringing the racquet.

Thanks Pete, not as nice as yours though. I was so jealous of you I went out and bought something 1/6th the cost of your machine xD.How goes the stringing on that Opus? I'm loving how much easier it is nearing the end of the racquet. Used to be so cramped so so hard to finish and tie off the last 3 - 4 crosses.
