    I have been posting a lot on string combo's the last couple of days, but dont worry, I wont become another guy like "doggykit" who fills up a whole page of questions in a day.

    Anyway, here is somebackground on my string setup:

    Babolat Pro Hurricane Tour in the mains at 60 pounds, Babolat Addiction in the crosses at 58 pounds.

    During the winter months, I did not play as much due to court availability.
    Soo, I played about 7 hours a week, and I restrung after 8 weeks(they did not break although there was severe notching)

    I like the feeling of my current setup, cant really complain abouty anything, but am looking for something different.

    Questions:

    1. If I go full poly, and play 10-11 hours a day now, how long will the strings last until they feel dead.

    2. How much of a power difference will there be(if mains affect 80% of the playing characteristics, and I have poly's there now, will there be that big of a difference?)?

    3. Is there any hybrid that will play the same as my current setup but will save me money?(I want to buy locally, so my brands are limited to: Babolat, Luxilon, Gamma, Head, Dunlop, Wilson, Prince, Tecnifibre)


    Thanks in advance...
