    Fellow BG users, how long does your BG go before the gears wear off. I hit for about 1.5 hours on Friday, played 4 tournament doubles matches over the weekend (3 4.5 matches and 1 5.0 match), and played about another 1.5 hours of doubles last night. The gears are worn completely smooth on the 1.28g BG in the sweetspot.

    Does this seem about right? I mentioned the fact that besides Friday it was mostly doubles just because there are even less groundstrokes involved so it seems like the gears should last longer. The funny thing is I'm still getting great spin from this string!

    I think the rough texture wears off faster than the gears so that is why it feels smooth and that is probably why you still get good spin.
