I have found that poly gets a lot worse from steady hitting rather than just sitting in my bag. I know that it still loses tension from sitting but it does not lose the playability as much as from banging with it steady.
I never heard that if you don't break poly in a week that you should not be using them. All I do know is that they play great when fresh and after a few times out they go down quickly.
That must be why the pro players only use a string job for a little more than a half hour.
