Re: How long should strings last?

A few things.
You could have a broken grommet with a sharp edge which could be breaking the strings. Also both places could suck at stringing.

What would be a good idea would be to do a hybrid. String your mains with monofilament string such as luxilon big banger or babolat hurricane. Then do your crosses with a soft string of your choice so you keep the feel.

Synthetic gut does break reasonably quickly, but I would say if they're breaking after 3 days that's not right. I would try 1 other place, my guess is it probably isn't being strung well.

Another possibility is that your game just isn't right for synthetic gut strings. Use strings which are slightly more durable, although the playability might not be quite so good. There isn't a huge difference though.
They break easily which are the best for long lasting strings?
