So if you really wanted to, and you could control the increased power, you could actually continue to use PS Energy for many hours beyond the 6 hour mark, probably 10-12 hours or more without any other problems.
Good point. I found this when I strung up my N-Tour Two with Energy at 35lbs. It was godlike for the first two hours but still playable for a long time after and I didn't notice any discomfort like I do with other polys after leaving them in the racquet too long. A hybrid of PSE mains and syn gut crosses would also mitigate against the rocket launcher effect.
