    Wow! I love bg66um, by far the best string i have came across imo, but had to stop using them as they would snap after 2-3 sessions and all of the other centre strings frayed. I only had them strung at 24lb by very reputable stringer.
    My questions to you is how on earth did you get these strings to last five months rather than 1 week? and why do you use such a high string tension when you must not hit that hard? or am i missing something/got summit wrong?

    about two hours or less- usually doubles on 2 nights for two hours and singles one night for 1 hour.

    Wow that is great 2 months, no string i have used has lasted that long never mind bg66um. Still alanwong76 got them to last five months which must be some kinda record. Whats your trick then?

    My housemate strings my racquets, sticking with BG80 for now because they're a bit more durable than 66UM which lasted only 1 2 hour session with me.

    Lasted for 2 month for me with my VT 70, tension 23/25 lbs, played for 6hrs per week, I noticed mostly my string snap at far side of the frame. Just need to improve to hit birdie more accurate at sweetspot and it could prolonged the string life ( in my opinion) btw I always restring my rackets after 3 months.

    I had my BS11 strung with BG66 Ultimax @ 26 lbs this week. It felt a little tight. Should I go down to 24-25 or will it loose the extra lbs after some weeks by itself?

    Tension will drop over time, and if you don't have a tourney to play, I would wait and see how it feels. You may like the new tension.

    For me, I am really offensive in my play and using the BG66UM I think these strings are really good
    I have just been playing with BG80 and I don't like them as much.
    I am just wondering if anyone else agrees me ?

    Equally repulsive and powerful. Maxima has softer feel, which is what i preferred. both strings compared at 28lbs on vt80 3ug5. same grips same config.

    Love love Love this string. It lasted me about 2~3months for the BG66UM. If you just get a BG66 it only lasted me 1 month.

    I prefer BG66UM over BG80 but saying that I have only ever used 66 and 80 so I am not sure if anything else is better.
