Has anyone besides me noticed that these racquets break string frequently up high on the head? Very poor design by my sponsor. Anyone have any ideas?

I have not with the O3 Hybrid tours except a couple sets of SPPP 1.18 but I think that is more that string than the sticks.

O3 eats strings for breakfast.

I've heard that quite a bit, but never experienced it myself.

The same string lasts just as long on my 03's as they do on my Wilsons.

I'm using the O3 tour MS with some kind of Syn. gut, sometimes a multi.

If the strings are breaking at the top of the head, check the bumper: the O3 frames are notorious for splits in the bumper in the center head area, causing the strings to rub the frame and break.

your o3 doesnt eat strings as badly as the MP version, or the SP black. but yes, this is a fact of life for 03 users. our strings break :)

Same thing here. I use O3 Tour MS frames and don't have problems.
