I normally use 17g poly at 55lbs and I'm string 4G 16g at 58lbs in my Steams and its working well.
If you know what the racquet is designed to do then you should be able to match a good string based on the racquets attributes and your abilities.
I stick with my polys probably a bit longer than I should...That said, i've never broken a poly string...only guts and multis (guess i'm not such a huge hitter). So i'll see how it lasts
