Re: How long should strings last?

Well it depends on 2 factors really:

1) What type of string you use (and)
2) What tension you use them at.

Adding to:

1) If you use real gut strings, thin type, they'll be likely to snap sooner, than the other extreme, which are extremely thick strings (everlasting )

2) If you play with a heavy racket tension (control players usually do, as opposed to power players who want as much power from the tension as possible) they'll also be more likely to snap sooner; cuz they are tightly strung.

Basically a Factor 3) as mentioned already in this thread, is the amount of time you play of course. Once a year for regular tennis play is average I was told.
