It'll depend on their string guage too though, I just switched from .13's to .14's and the .50 sounds like a .75 compared to the thinner strings.
From the number of strings he breaks, I'd say it's a fairly good bet Chris' acoustics are strung with relatively light gauges. He's a rough player sometimes, but even so he goes through a ton of strings. Most of the players I've known that to be the case with favor light strings.
