    LM Radical Tour setup

    I have a LM radical Tour with Head's FXP power 16g at 54lbs. Its not a great string and it is showing sign of breaking after 1 month of use (4-5 hours per week). Durability is not as great as said. I am looking for a new setup. I did use Wilson's enduro pro on a K surge which I did not break...
