Hi, I have a little problem; my strings usually lasts me about one month(pro hurricane),but at the last few restringing the strings lasts me about 2 weeks playing like before or less...This happened with pro hurricane and original, the original lasts me 2 weeks playing about 15 hours with it, is this possible?Is this a bad stringjob???

Have u checked ur grommet? Sometimes bad grommet will result in the string broken...cutting by the racquet hole..

Yes, the grommet is normal(the wilson smile), I have it from months

The grommet is the plastic piece that seperates the racquets frame from the string. If the plastic pieces(grommets) are in bad shape, the string could be in contact with the frame, which will cause it to break prematurely usually.

Where did it break?

The strings break about in the middle of the swing spot, and the grommets where changed about 5 months ago 'cause they where broken.So why strings(bb original 1.30mm) break so fast?
