Which strings should I use
I have been using Wilson k gut for awhile now and love it but it's been discontinued so I've been experimenting. I have been trying babolat nat gut with rpm blast and love it but I play 20-30 hrs a week so it's been too expensive as I feel like the rpm loses playability fast. Cost isn't a big issue but stringing up to 3 racquets with gut and rpm a week is a bit much.

Can anyone suggest a string setup that may work for me?

have you tried a full bed of nat gut yet. i cant remember what kgut feels or plays like. what are you looking for in a string.

I liked k gut because it had a ton of feel and was pretty good all around in terms of spin power and control. It would break at 8-10 hrs and I was fine with that.

I like rpm and Nat gut because I can rip my forehand and the spin drops it in. I just feel like the rpm dies to fast because of how much I play. Is there anything out there similar to k gut or a poly similar to rpm that lasts longer?

Geaaaaaahd, 20-30hrs a week? I'm happy when I get in 3 hours a week haha.

K gut is a great product. You can try nxts, or x-one.

What about polys that play similar to RPM but last longer. Do any of these fit that criteria?

Signum Pro Hyperion
MSV Hepta Twist
Kirschbaum Helix

I don't know anything about those 3 strings I just looked up strings similar to RPM in the TW database, those were 3 that came up that said they had good tension maintenance, any other suggestions are appreciated
