I have strings measuring low 40s on RT that snap back into place and play like new. To be honest, I like the way this frame feels with aged strings and hand lotion better than when freshly strung.

The lotion also greatly reduces wear.

So, perhaps this same trick applied with this much softer ZX will allow the string to have a respectable life in the 99S........I shall have to try this.
Hand lotion? Should i wash tennis balls with a soap afterwards?
And for 2HBH players, what about left hand?
