for me because i play so often, i find the syn lasts the longest whilst i feel comfortable with it. i was having my rackets restrung every 2 weeks.

luckily because i have a friend who strings, i only pay for the string sets and because he gets them at cost price it is dirt cheap.
Really then we are in the exact same position . Synthetic gut isn't the most durable, but for feel and durability I think it has the best combination. Plus, I string my own so I can also do it at dirt cheap (plus the string itself is already cheaper than most)

How should you be? You should be like a rocky promontory against which the restless surf continuously pounds.
It stands fast while the churning sea is lulled to sleep at its feet. I hear you say,
"How unlucky that this should happen to me."
But not at all.
Perhaps say instead how lucky I am that I am not broken by what has happened,
and I am not afraid of what is about to happen.
