8 months for poly mains? Not sure if your used to hitting with a sledge hammer or what? Most poly goes dead rather quickly, especially if it's in the mains, feels like hitting with a board. Not sure how you don't feel that?

Gut crosses are better than syn gut or multi crosses but since the mains determine about 75-80% of how a racket plays, it seems like a big waste of money to me.

Gut mains/poly cross is a great stringbed for me, but too expensive. I now use multi mains or syn gut mains with poly crosses.
I actually cut my crosses out when the poly goes dead and just restring the crosses to get another 2-3 weeks out of my gut mains. I don't break strings all that often so I can get away with it. I've also used syn gut mains when things get tight and it's not bad at all.
