So I ask you folks, for those who hit pretty heavy and break strings..can you get 10 hours out of any 1.30-1.35 gauge poly string? I read that no one really likes black magic in this stick so I have yet to try.

I am looking for nice pocketing, even a bit of launch, nice spin to control it, and price around 7-$11 a set.

I like to string the 99s at 50#s. I can say that the prince xc seemed low powered even at that tension for a while. The ball came off the strings without much pop compared to other setups. The feel is not bad though. It is a very comfy setup. I just am not sold yet to where I want to buy a reel. Still experimenting.

Something like Black Widow in a 16 gauge could be awesome..I have no experience with it though, just going by description.
For some decent pop and good ball pocketing, I would recommend either Sonic Pro 16 or Poly Star Energy 16. Tension maintenance is not great with Poly Star, but that shouldn't as much of an issue on this racquet.
