Of the four Kirschbaum strings, Competition, SSH, SSS, TT, which holds its playability the longest?

Looking at the archives, I'm thinking its Competition. Any comparison between the strings would also be hlepful.

I'm looking to hybrid with some OG Micro 17 in the crosses, how does it sound?

I used the SS for 3 yrs and loved it-but my arm fell apart. The TT is much softer and I believe the playability last a set longer. The SS plays great initially 2-3 sets but then tapers off, while the TT stays soft until the break. I'm a sound 4.5 --hit 1st serves in the upper teens-20's and the TT has the feel for 4-maybe 6 sets.

Hey Boris, which SS were you using Honey or Spikey and in what gauge?

I used the honey 16 & 17. I tried the spikey @16 but there was no difference. I prefer the 17 - the power and durability are not like the 16 obviously but it played better overall. I still use the 16 for my ball machine racquet.
