Hey guys I'm looking for a durable string just for practices. Im not looking for spin, power, control. I just need an extra durable string to help me practice without having to restring every 2 days.

I play with Pro Supex Big Ace which has good durability and I break them in 4-5 hours. So I need something JUST durable. I dont care about feel, power, etc. its just for practice

how many racquets do you have? A cheap tournament nylon or kelvar-coated syn gut like prince synthetic gut w/ duraflex would work "just for practice," but it would require you to have a great deal of racquets, considering how fast you break big ace. Cheap kelvar would be an option, or cheap polyester in reels (gamma durablast)

I have 3 k6.1 Tour and to tell you the truth I dont care what string is, I just need at least 4 days, I may consider using 15 gauge just to make it last.

Ashaway Crossfire kevlar hybrid sets. Cheap and durable with great spin and feel if you string it low.

Seems to me you would want to practice with the racket and strings you would play your matches with. If your racket feels different every time you pick it up you are going to start compensating.

Find a longer lasting string you like or start using string savers.
