    I use one racquet at a time and I get one racquet restrung every Sunday. I was playing my cousin at his college on the 5th day of the week and we were warming up our serves and I had just finished so I was returning his serves. He hit one around 85 mph to my BH so for fun I just ripped it as hard as I could and my big ace strung 56 pounds on my pure storm team snapped on a center main right on the middle of the sweetspot.

    Super-glue sometimes works... but if the string is 19g, then it's too small and very hard to glue the two ends back together!

    I dont like breaking strings. I immediately think...

    "Man, there goes a couple dollars, my hands are going to get roughed up, and nearly a hour with my dropweight..."
