    Hello,

    Not counting kevlar, which string resists notching the most if one gives up all the other attributes such as spin, control, power, comfort, tension, etc? Many thanks.

    String savers if you don't hit with a lot of spin are the way to go.

    Luxilon ALU. Tension will go but it does a good job in the other categories.

    Co-polys, they're almost made for this.

    I've had success with very smooth poly's, not including clear poly's like Polylon. I think after the second day of hitting did I start seeing noticeable notching.

    Look no further than Prince Tournament Poly - glassy smooth and hard dent-resistant surface. Tension maintenance is so-so though. I like to use it as cross with kevlar mains.

    2nd for string savers. After trying them, I'm shocked more avid players don't use them.
