    I replace mine when they start looking frayed. I replace them about a week before Adult Nationals whether they're looking frayed or not.

    I don't compete, so I'm going to go with "when they break"

    I've always been able to tie the broken ends together to make it through a session, and I replace the laces on both feet after that.

    I had to replace mine recently because one of the hooks ended up with a jagged bit which started cutting the lace. Ended up filing the jagged bit with a nail file and then brought new laces.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    I replace them when they break. But I regularly shift them from some centimeters. This way, it's not always the same part who fray.
