Well after rave reviews of my first round of Beast I strung my second racquet with it last week.

The Beast in my mains snapped in less than 3 hours.
It snapped in the upper part of the hoop on one of my outer main strings.
Not sure if it was a bad string job where maybe I damaged the string with clamps or if I shanked it just right to cause the snap but I was really disappointed.

I will give it one more try and report back on the durability.
Racquet: Wilson PS97 String: Prince syn gut @55lbs in mains, ISOSPEED Baseline Control 16 @50lbs in crosses, Wilson 6.1 95s backup same string setup
