Similar string like Head Lynx or Yonex pro poly tour

It's embarrassing but i'm here again overwhelmed by so many strings..it's a pain!

I like this two strings, Lynx or the Yonex pro poly tour and i used them full bed, but the issue here is that the mains start moving big time all over the frame around the 3 hours mark especially when doing drilling high intensity. I'm a decent 4.5 with a good forehand with a good amount of spin and a decent two HBH more flat thought I strug them around 44-46 all the time.

Question for you guys is:
are there strings similar to those mentioned that won't move so soon? I would consider also some shaped poly ( mainly 7 edges) as the new big hitter tour or similar.
Thanks

How long do you usually go between string jobs? No poly lasts more than 10 hours of play, even if it hasn't broken. In thinking your strings are notching and that is preventing the mains from snapping back. You could try a more slippery cross like Wilson revolve, or a harder cross like redcode wax to encourage snap back.

I cut the string about 4 hours as now. Once they start moving the first time it's all down hill. I try to play a little longer but every exchange is creating a mess of strings out of place and holes. After 4 hours of hitting( 2 hours mild hitting 2 hours of hard hitting) i can barely move the crosses due to the notching. Maybe i'm stringing them wrong? Mains 46 and crosses 45. Could it be the issue here?

Polytour strike? I think it's slightly firmer and not as springy as PolyTour Pro, but I think it is considerably better than Pro in terms of tension maintenance and movement. It's slightly more expensive though.

Yeah you are paying the price for being a good player. Nothing you can do here.

i think the strings move around because the slippery coating wears off...YPTP does not have much of a coating on the string

id give signum pro poly plasma a try...really good feel, maybe use hextreme if u want a shaped string for better bite. I have 1.20mm in orange and white as well as a boat load of tourna s7t in 16/17g if you’re interested in a deal, just PM me

Thanks guys!
I remember that few years ago I used to string my racquet with Alu Power and it would not move at all. It would go dead but still playable for 10 hours for me.
Maybe as suggested Soznie is about of the string being softer rather than firmer.

-a couple lbs is what I like (on a FB poly), but this is all dependant on the racquet string pattern, 4me!
-on a 16/19, I like to be 2lbs less on the cross
-on a 16/20, I like to be 3lbs less on the cross
-you seem to be describing a locked string-bed!!, where the mains are not slidding back easily!! maybe "1lb" is not enough??!!,
-would be something to try and see

I might be interested in trying the tourna.

I think that could be a good reason why the strings get locked so bad.
I will definitely do down 2-3 lbs to see if make a difference!
