    Put Head RIP Control in a midsize 18x20, and you've got an arm-friendly poly-like stringbed.

    Either, but of course the 16g will last longer.

    Not as much, because with a larger headsize, the pattern will be more open.

    Laserfibre Eternal 16 (not sure if its made any more)
    Luxilon 5 Star 15L (not made any more)
    Kirshbaum Super Smash Honey 1.35 (if you can find any one that carries it)
    Ashaway Kevlar 16
    Prince Pro Blend 16

    Not that these are the most playable, but they don't break much.

    I hate to put this here because I'm not a fan of the string but it sure does live up to durability

    Sure, but what if they're using an heirloom 110 Hyper hammer or a Head iS12? :)

    I've also had good results with both ZoTwist and SPPP 1.28/Sweet 16 in the fan-pattern Ti S6 style racquets.
    Intellistring, Intellitour, and the whole RIP Family work great in those, as well.

    Most of those people were ill-advised and bought the wrong racquet.

    "No, Dammit, I'll make it work if it's the last thing I do. Maybe a better string?"

    "Ok, yes, there is a better string for you."
    "We'll make it work (whisper- But you really should be thinking about a different racquet).
    "Oh, man! I love the lightness of this racquet!"
    "Okay, you got it, RedCode 1.30/Leoina66, it is."

    sorry, i don't agree with this choice. piano wire doesn't last nearly as long as steel rebar. ;)

    Then you've crossed the point of no return already.

    Hard to get that through the grommets, though.
    Nickel-silver.007 strings up well@35, but it tends to slice and dice the ball.
    License to kill, you know.

    By string breaker's strings, do you mean strings with the best durability, playability, tension maintenance, or least durability?

    I'm tempted to see strings that make people say, "that was the best 10 minutes of my life."
