Comparison of high-speed strength data for weak (abraded, contaminated and indented) and pristine fibers was performed. It was shown that fatigue behavior of abraded fiber practically coincides with that of the fiber contaminated by zirconia powder and is close to that of indented fiber. The fatigue parameters obtained for strong pristine fiber cannot be used to obtain the correct prediction of fiber strength after proof testing. A two-region power law model was used for mathematical description of these results and the fatigue parameters for three types of weak fibers were obtained.
