Well it sounds like the PPA may last longer? The RIP has not busted on me yet (2 hours in). The last RIP I used lasted 4 hours, but it was 17 gauge.
If I get 12-19 hours out of it, I'm going to be very very happy and buy a reel. If It breaks after 4-8, I already have my list:
my 6.1 gut mains/msv poly setup.
And this PPA that seems to be rather durable. I know Mikeler is a string breaker as well.
I break strings faster now that I went to a lighter stick, but my control and pace and spin AND serve is all better so it is worth it.
Up&Comer have you used 16 gauge rip in a full job before? Just wondering if you did and how long you got out of it.
