I usually define it as the former being longevity and the latter being durability.
Those are good distinctions.

For me generally I mean "does the string feel dead or boardy" when I talk about durability. I do break gut mains when using poly crosses but not on a consistent basis. In most cases the poly cross feels dead to me or gets too springy before that point.

When I tried full poly it was always in the mid to high 40s at most. never hit with one long enough to judge either string breakage or "going dead" since I didn't really like how they felt.
