I will try my normal setup (Sonic pro/Rip Control) during the weekend and see how long it lasts.
definitely a stringing issue or a bad grommet. My local tennis shop has most of their Prince demos strung with Beast and some have lasted more than 6 months. Are you using the 16g?
I would try a different stringer / machine.
