    I have broken my strings 4 times since the middle of april. Today i broke my strings that had been restrung a week ago. I currently use the wilson sensation. Does anyone recomend something more durable or should i stick with these strings?

    If you like the string and can afford the jobs... why not? I don't see any point in switching "just because".

    Cheers!

    What tension are you currently using? You might want to try out some soft poly...

    I don't know what gauge that you use, but my string lasts longer since I switch from 17 to 16.

    Assuming you don't string yourself, you should let us in on what selection you have available to you. No, Wilson Sensation is not the most durable multifilament Wilson string you could select. OTOH, Wilson's NXT Max would cost you roughly double Sensation's price.

    Well since it's common for full synthetics to break within weeks, it's pretty common that you're breaking them. Maybe switch to polys or hybrid the polys with the synthetics. It should last a much longer time.
