I didn't get too much out of the 2008 posts. In the 2005-2007 posts, there was alot of complaining about the Xcel premium on how it died fast and had terrible durability ontop of a giant tension loss. There didnt seem to be as much in the 2008 posts, so i was wondering... is there really that much of a difference in the 2008 one? I don't want the string to die fast or lose too much tension since I restring only once every 4 months. I play roughly 6-7 hours a week.
