Most durable poly/copoly

Just wondering what are some of the longest lasting poly/copoly strings available? I don’t particularily have any preference as far as the feel is concerned. Just need some strings that will give me more hours of playing.

Lux 4G if you don't mind losing an arm! lol

I can't remember what gauge you were using, but if you like that string, try going one gauge thicker.

I use Wilson Revolve. It’s not super fancy or expensive string, but I get great power and soon from it. I use 16 gauge on my Wilson Ultra 100 CV and have strung at 55lbs

Thank you, guys. I normally use 16G and don’t mind at all going thicker. Is about 8 hours the maximum I would get from poly strings? I guess I should be looking into getting a machine.

Mhkeuns, I just recently got back into tennis last year in August. Since then I learned a lot more about the technical side of tennis, strings, racquets, shoes, racquet weight, etc. I consider myself a strong 3.5 to 4.0 player. I strung my racquets a few months ago and rotate them when I play. I’ve been reading this thread and I can’t make sense of it. Everyone says the strings are dead and are no good after 10-12 hours of playing? My strings are just fine and I play 3-4 times a week. There’s very little to no loss of tension on my strings, I can slice and topspin with no problems. I inspected them, they’re not fraying or anything. Before anyone chimes in. Yes I do hit hard, my forehand and serve are some of my strongest weapons when I play. I haven’t felt any pain in my elbow either. I know other strings are supposed to be better and higher quality, but I’m gonna just stick with my Wilson Revolve because they work and are obviously durable.

Not only strings are a factor in durability, but your racquet, stringing tension and playing style are important too.
 
I honestly love my Yonex PolyTour Fires. But it depends what you are looking to get out of your strings. I was using 130s, but switched to 125s and use 70# full bed with 10% pre stretch. I am a power hitter and still get good time out of them as they are quite slippery.

Strings go dead for sure. Arm pain builds over time.

I broke RPM Blast and Volkl Cyclone quite often but I was pleasantly surprised with IsoSpeed Baseline. I have not broken it after dozens of string jobs. Very flexible and durable in 16.

Absolutely Lux 4G. Loved it as a cross w/ natural gut mains. In a full bed, not my cup of tea. But it lasted long as heck, and longer than any string even when I tried them in a Wilson spin effect stick (Pro Staff 95S). Maintained tension incredibly well until it broke.

RPM team. Holds tension pretty well also. I’m not a string breaker. It’s a firm string and I can’t use it anymore because my elbow whinges but I felt it did everything well especially freshly strung.
