I dont get how you do that. I get annoyed with 9's and even 10's because they feel so thin and noodly.

You're almost certainly hitting it vastly too hard. Calm down. Remember that after a point, hitting a string harder doesn't result in any extra volume or improved tone, its just wasted effort.

normally for me its the high E and it takes about 3-4 weeks.
I use 10 guage DR Tite Fit, and I play a lot of Death Metal, like Children Of Bodom, Norther, etc. and I play lots of high divebombs and bends, mostly breaks because of a divebomb lol

My bass strings hardly break if ever. I played the bass I've had for 5 years now and the strings broke recently cause there so worn. I generally change them if the strings are a bit rough.

I can't remember the last time I actually broke a string

I also use flatwounds, so I can use 11-gauge as opposed to 10-gauge roundwounds and still tune up to E standard with relatively no trouble.

When I was playing lots of 4-string banjo gigs I would break strings occasionally-once very few gigs or so
