    I bought a reel of Pro Supex Big Ace a little while ago and it's starting to run out. I am looking to get a more durable string but I can't really go with Luxilon right now. $200 a reel is outrageous. So, is there any more durable poly that is at a good price? As I have hit with my Big Ace (just restrung on Sat.) for under 7 hours and its pretty much almost done if not very close to breaking. My friend also breaks it in under 10 hours so this is not as durable as I wanted it to be..... :(

    Is the string pattern 16 x 19? If it is, then most strings will pop fairly quickly. I am assuming you are a decent player.

    I played with the Volkl C10 Pro which is 16 x 19 pattern, I popped strings (full job poly) in 2-2.5 hours. My prestiges with an 18x20 pattern, don't pop for like 15-20 hours!

    I just ordered some isospeed long life string (2 reels) and a reel of cyberflash. Cyberflash came out to be about $60. They should be both here by the 1st the latest. The isospeed should be here by Saturday.
