How long does your full bed of polyester strings last you before it snaps or you voluntarily choose to cut it out? And for the purposes of this poll lets just include the strings that you use most of the time and ignore your experience with strings that you do not use often.

I just wanted a ball park figure across the board for polyesters in general to guage the stringing habits of polyester users out there.

So pick a choice regardless of your polyester string type.

Let's get those votes in. The more the merrier as you know with all these polls.

It all depends on the string, I cut it out when it feels dead. As far as play time goes, the worst was Tour Bite 18ga which was around 4 hrs (probably just too thin for this material) and the best was Focus Hex & Co-Focus 1.18ga or thicker at 8-10hrs.

Usually I cut it out after about 4 hours. Though I leave it in longer if I'm doing a proper review of the string for somebody.
