Definitely a bad batch. I've traveled all over the world with my White's, and while I keep an extra lace in case of breakage, that's only happened to me once. For it to happen 3 times is just crazy. As an aside, I recommend obenauf-ing laces. They help to prevent them from drying out, but more importantly, the tackiness provided by the beeswax helps to keep them tied.
