Here is TW Professors view on textured strings
Spin is caused mostly by the mains, so even if the cross string gets smooth by the main rubbing up and down its length, the main string will keep its texture (except in the groove where it is sliding). So, for as much as texture influences spin (sticky string-to-ball interaction is not as important as slippery string-to-string interaction), it shouldn't change much. But I have never tested that.
I don't test durability, but it is logical to assume that an acutely shaped or rough poly might wear through the gut faster.
