Using Ashaway strings... wonderful.. but...
 
I really enjoy the feel and the durability of Ashaway strings.

I shoot really hard and my strings usually last max 4 hours.

Since I use the Ashaway , I never break them, but .. I break the others (I use a hybrid combination), I think they are syntetic gut (longitudinal?)

Why is it? Is it possible that in this hybrid system the syntetic gut I use is really poor?

Thanks

Is this Ashway Crossfire ..?
 
If it is the mains are Kevlar, which is an extremely durable string. The Ashway cross is a soft Syn gut. You could try one of the harder Synguts. I use 16g Prince SG with Duraflex or the equivalent from one of the other companies since I buy Ashway Kevlar in reels.

What strings are you using the mains, exactly?
What strings are you using as crosses, exactly?

the ashaway kevler should stay intact in an armed skirmish.

i pair it - the ash. kevlar with a forten syngut and it has help up great after hundreds of balls.

Nice analogy. If you want to stick with Syn guy go for a thicker gauge. It will last you a bit longer. If you really want more durability bump it to poly.
