    I use BG80 and I break the string every hour or two of playing...!!
    So nothing to worry about...its normal, just get it restring try BG65/BG65Ti for more durable strings...

    Don't you go bankrupt after spending so much for strings & the stringing?

    shouldnt break so easily, even thou BG80 is not known for durability.

    common reasons of premature breakages might be:

    1) worn grommets, so your strings are touching the ahsft itself.
    2) bad hit
    3) bad stringing technique, string might get twisted.

    There is video in youtube regarding string break
    the person explaining about tennis racket but i think applicable to badminton too.
    if the length of the string that break is about the same then most probably it break from outside (rubbing the racket too much against the floor)
    if the length of the string that break one seem longer than other than most probably is misshit.

    my guess its the latter since its only 2 hours after stringing.

    Mate, if every player comes back to us stringers, and ask for a free re-do, and claim that it's only been used for 2 hrs. How we going to find out whether it's a case, or you just finished a tennis match with it???

    So, I think we have to say sorry and welcome to the real world.

    you just have to change your stringer in order to find out if the current one has a lack of skill.

    The relationship between players and stringers should be "trust". It's like how you pick a mech. for your car. You can question all you want, or raise the ??? all over the place. At the end, you have to pick someone make you feel more comfortable.

    If you don't feel comfortable for whatever reason, change to another one. If you feel good overall, stay with him/her.

    Before you jump to conclusions, maybe you can state how many times you've used that stringer and how many times your strings have snapped within a couple of hours. One time is more likely to be chance than anything else. Hell, the racket I bought from Dinkalot with fresh string job (ashaway mp) lasted 1 hr before they snapped. And I'd say he has a pretty good reputation here.

    Your stringer must really hate you to sabotage your strings.

    On this note, I have seen some stringers delibrately use to hurt the strings after they are strung.

    Yes, the reason why i bought my machine was because i thought i would save quite abit if i string myself. BG65 used to last me around 1month. But, after i started stringing myself, a bg65 would last me about 2months plus.

    So i figured, they usually use the awl to"even out the tension"(their reason on using the awl on the stringbed). But actually, their are delibrately hurting the string.
