Your opinion on the most durable strings out? The cheaper and more expensive ones would be appreciated. Any 15 gauge strings would be worth mentioning since i've been thinking about trying a 15L string.

Try Kevlar in the mains with synthetic gut in the crosses. Prince Pro Blend comes with this packaged together. I see Ashaway Kevlar get a lot of recommendations on these boards too.

In terms of resistance to breakage, aramids (kevlar) are unmatched, but it will destroy your arm. Some people on the board swear that kevlar at really low tensions (i.e. 30's-low 40's) is more arm friendly than most polys, but that is debatable and it's not worth the risk when you are only 15, you play with a one hander (and likely don't have flawless technique as a self-proclaimed 4.0), and play with a stiff racket. In 15/15L synthetics Gosen Pro Form Tuff is decent. Otherwise in a poly/co-poly Unique Big hitter blue has a good blend of durability and tension maintenance.
