strings go dead. but the synguts will retain elasticity much longer. and yes, they will move alot while still quite playable. basically, if you don't break them they "last" alot longer than poly in general.
i can't relate to you guys that crush strings in 2 hours, so i can't speak to that. time to go pro, i'd say.
