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.
I love PPA. I had it strung on my spare Ki 5x, and if it plays like it did on my APDGT it will probably be my go to multi. I only played with it for about 5 hours on my APDGT, but I knew from looking at it that it would probably go another 5 hours.
However, for pure durability my money is on RIP Control 16. I've played with it long enough to know it's tough as nails. It would have gone 20 hours if I let it, but I was getting sick of looking at it for so long I cut it at 19!
