Gamma Professional is my personal favorite string (although the 18g wouldn't last me two hours).
If you want to try something similar but just a touch stiffer, try Live Wire XP. It's very very close to Professional but more bang for the buck.
Also, if you're thinking you might like poly, try a hybrid of Gamma iO or Gamma RZR Rx (both softer, very playable polys) with either Professional or LW XP.
