    Recently, I changed my racket to Wilson Juice 100 and strung VS gut at 60 pounds. It snapped in a month. I play usually twice a week. Each session is 2 hour or 3 hours. I like to hit top-spin. When I used multi on Pure Drive, it used to last more than six weeks. I thought natural gut is more durable than multi. So, I never expected it to snap in a month. Is this because of racket? I can't afford a set of natural gut every month. If Juice 100 is a string breaker, I might have to think about gut hybrid or multi full-bed setup.

    Yes, the Juice would be considered a "string breaker" vs other frames. That said, so is the pure drive.

    You need to consider you are actually getting very good life from the string already. 2-3 hours each session times twice a week is 8-12 hours of play, and considering you are most-likely drilling vs playing sets,,, that is very good.

    Perhaps hybrid the gut with a less expensive synthetic in the crosses, and that will offset the cost somewhat.
