way to go for string breakers
Pretty much the only way to go. I usually only bring a pair of sticks to practice, but for tournaments I'll have all 5 strung up the same just for my sanity.
I'm using a poly/syngut hybrid, in a pretty dense 18x20 pattern. I don't break nearly as much as I do with open patterns. That being said though I get roughly 8 hours of a string job. I rotate my sticks so that I'm not constantly restringing. Every hour of play I try to remember to switch out my racket so that I'm getting 40 hours (sometimes more or less) of play before breaks/restringing. It works out pretty well for myself at least!
