Does BB Ace 18 have the same, better, or worse durability than lets say a normal string at like 16 gauge. Lets just use Wilson Sensation 16 as an example.

More durable depending on the player. The Ace will be more ... responsive to mishit strokes especially near the top of the frame.

Durability is good - it takes a fair bit of hitting to actually break this string, however it goes dead long before it breaks. After about 6 hours I cut it out.

Well, based on my experiences with all other types of BB string, (Original, Alu, Timo), the durability should be pretty good, however, they may lose tension quickly, as I found that was the case with other BBs.

Sensation is not durable. Ace lasted me about 12-14 hours. A normal 16g syn gut lasts maybe about 16. So Ace is almost as durable for me as a 16g syn gut. It's not worth it for the money. Cyberflash 17g is a more arm friendly poly and lasts about 20 hours.
