As we all know if a string doesn't break early in it's life starts to loose tension and goes 'dead'. I was wondering what is the most consistent type of string? Well, obviously natural would be one answer but it's too expensive for me. Please try to avoid concrete suggestions. Just the type. Is it nylon, poly or something else?

Gut is the best at retaining tension. Polys and kevlar are the worst.

i would think kelvar to be the second most consistent type of string, next to natural gut. However, not due to tension maintenance, because kelvar is horrible at that. It is because a few pounds of tension loss in kelvar is almost unnoticeable to a lot of people after kelvar has been broken in, possibly one of the reasons being it is so dang stiff.

Natural Gut is the most consistent string on this planet!
