    guys im a chronic string breaker (i break poly/sythetic blend in 3 months, pure synthetic in 3 weeks or less).

    my question is this:
    which setup would last longer?

    1. Wilson enduro blend-half poly, half synthetic

    2. some cheap synthetic (gosen or prince?) with string savers (how long is this expected to last if i break endro blend in about 3 months?)


    thx a lot in advance

    That's actually really good in terms of durability... There are some people on this forum that break synthetic gut in less than an hour of hitting.

    But to answer your question, I think the poly/syn gut hybrid will still last longer than a synthetic with string savers.

    to me actually 3 months is a long time to keep strings alive. I'm extremely happy when strings last me about 1-2 months. It really depends on how much you play though. I don't use string savers so i can't tell you much, but it seems like the enduro blend is working well for you. I would use that or switch to a different poly. But its up to you.

    the problem i have right now is that i think i lack a little power, and i feel that it may be hurting me on serves and volleys. also my groudies are super consistent, so i feel like i could use the extra power. are there poly blends similar to enduro blend that offers a little more pop and tension maintainence?

    i think you might want to switch to a hybrid setup and experiment with poly for mains. like luxilon.
