I am not knowledgeable enough about strings to know the answer and I searched for posts to see if anyone talks of round polys that last more than 10 hours - but, I couldn’t easily find any. I tried ALU Power in a hybrid and it lasted only 7-8 hours and I asked my stringer for other round polys that would last longer. He said that most round polys will not last longer than 10 hours for me before they go dead and if they did, they would not provide as much power/bite as ALU Power - he is usually a knowledgeable, honest guy and so, I assumed this was the case. Just wanted to ask here to see if some other players had some suggestions that I could ask my stringer about in the future. Otherwise, I’ll keep stringing VS/HyperG and get about 12-15 hours out of the hybrid. I’m also planning to try a Volkl set that I bought that has 17g Volkl gut and Cyclone.Could it not be the round poly but the round poly you used that was at issue?
Round or shaped if a poly is not good at holding tension then it is not good at holding tension....
The TWU string specs database doesn’t specify if a poly is round or not and many of their string descriptions don’t even specify this. So, if I do a search of poly strings with good tension maintenance, I don’t know if they are round or not unless I do a separate google search on each string.
