Lately i have been stringing my Mfil 300s with maxim touch 16 in the mains and big ace 16 in the crosses. However, i've started to play a little more and now break that combo within a week to 10 days for both racquets alternating days. They both broke in a tournament over the weekend which left me with no racquet to use. I obviously couldnt have that so i strung it up with Big Ace 16 in the mains and Spiral Flex 16 in the crosses but today i used it and it brutalized by wrist/arm. Is there anyway i could increase the durability of my Maxim Touch/Big Ace combo, or are there any similar, more durable setups?

EDIT: by the way i strung the maxim touch/Big Ace setup at 61/57 while the Big Ace/ Spiral Flex setup at 59/55

You could try string savers. Babolat makes them, as well as Unique and Gamma. I believe Wilson makes them also but I don't know where to get that one. Also, try stringing the poly a little looser, that may help. Also, try a more durable string in the mains, Maxim Touch is a multi that is known for not being that durable.

Try switching it up. Big Ace is a very unique poly and it will probably feel just as good. It may feel different, but it will work out. If you don't like that, then like it says above, just use string savers. Gamma's are the thickest, Babolat's are the easiest to put in, and Unique's is sorta both.

Try Pro Supex Titan in the crosses instead. Should be alot softer than the Spiral Flex

Actually, Maxim Touch is known for its durability which is much better than most other multi strings.
