    Bask in your string-breaking glory. Either that, or use a thicker gauge.

    Have you checked out your grommets? Try some kevlar if permitting. Thicker guages.

    Unless you're the uber roxxorz at tennis, you should try replacing your grommets. If you are roxxorz, then get a thicker gauge or take a swing with kevlar.

    What is your level? Do you hit heavy topspin? Arm problemas? What do you want from a raquet, fell, power? Assuming there is no problem with your grommets, breaking strings every two days, is not a bad thing, if thats the setup you like, it's expensive, though.

    I think the question that needs to be asked is "where are you breaking the string?" If you are breaking them at the top of the frame, or off to the side, it may be time to check your technique

    If this is not the case, then you may try a different kind of string. I really noticed syn gut did not last long in this one. The open string pattern will just eat up strings. Maybe go with a 16G polyester or even Kevlar if you are breaking strings so fast.

    doesn't luxilon spin have the pentagonal shape? that stuff has sharp edges and the mains and crosses might be sawing into each other.

    I know if you use a hybrid, the strings will be a lot faster.

    if he is breaking it in the middle of the string bed he is just a massive hitter, if he he breaking it on the frame then it more than likely that the string is shearing
