Understand, but if you're a 3.5 durability wouldn't be an issue really. I'm not saying you are, but if in fact you're somewhere in the 3.0/3.5 range, maybe play twice a week or so, it's not a bad option. Many factors are involved in determining whether or not a string works for you. No one's seen you hit, so it's a guessing game really.
Lastly, if you think you're a tennis lifer, consider getting your own stringer.
