Maybe give Kirsch PL2 16-18 a hit. It's a comfy string and holds tension well with decent spin and power.

I'd not sure what kind of durability you had in mind, but if you're using a poly, I'd be aiming for 1 - 10 hrs of decent hitting before cutting them out (if they've not already snapped).

If you're going for max durability and don't really care when a poly dies, then maybe look at BHBR. Not a fan of it myself but it's 'ok' to hit with once it dies.

The string you search for goes by the name of WeissCannon Black 5 Edge.

BHBR is great when first strung but it does dies pretty fast. Power is great and spin is also really good.

I guess it's all relative.

used PL2 once, dead in 1 hour
used B5E once, dead in 3 hours.

there is no "good", but only "better" tension maintenance in polys.

SPPP has much less comfort than B5E.

Finding a string with all 3 attributes is a tough one, and I think many of us have been experimenting to get as close as possible.

For the best string that has top marks in all 3 categories, I'd vote for Signum Pro Hyperion.

I think most of the manufacturers are saying the same thing!

That's just not true. B5E lasts me 10+ hours full bed before it goes dead...

I got six last time, full bed.

Well, I'm not a big string breaker(anymore), and I'm not that sensitive to tension loss, so 10 hours is good for me...

the hour count - it varies so much because -

1) weather, something dead in colder climate maybe still playable in warmer.

2) personal feel - I am used to stretchy string.

3) and playing level - I can get 10 by hitting against less pace... but only 3 hitting against heavy pace..... different type of balls put different stress on the string.
