BHS vs BHB7 Durability?
 
Looking for an overall comparison of these two strings.. but especially in durability. I've got a stringbreaker lookin for something a bit more durable than the Silver 17, and I'm thinkin this might be it.

But please.. anything and everything you've got on these two strings.

Accordng to the back of a pack of BHB7:

For those stringing BLACK 7 at mid-tension range with mid-range ground strokes, its power potential will be slightly higher than Big Hitter Silver, slightly less than Big Hitter Blue. Stiffness and control will feel slightly stronger than Big Hitter Blue and slightly less than Big Hitter Silver.
BHB7 is softer than BHS, so I'd expect it to be less durable. From my experience, BHB7 goes dead more quickly, but that might not matter for your client.

Silver 16 is probably a good first step to up the durability.

BHB7 is softer than the Silver but in my experience... the BHB7 does not go dead more quickly.....but I do agree... go with the Silver in a 16G to start.

I will get 8-10 good hours out of the Silver 17... but a good 12 plus hours out of the BHB7 17G. I have tested and played all of the Tourna Poly Options

Of the polys I've tried, BHB7 (& Tour Bite) notched the fastest. Probably wouldn't hold up long for someone who regularly breaks polys.

BHS was much more durable to me than BHB7. Actually popped BHB7 surprisingly fast (less than 6 hours), and I usually don't break poly's that quickly. That said, I preferred BHB7 because of the softer feel.
