If you are like my friend who breaks it every 3 to 5 hours and plays more often, that could hurt your wallet .
That's the most useful reply yet. So really the durability for the same player on the same racquet going from 17g to 16g is fairly minimal.

However, I've noticed that if I don't play with a racquet much that the actual playing time of those gut mains gets diminished greatly because they dry out and get more fragile.
