Re: Basic - Long Lasting Strings? (Newbie Advice Please)

If you are playing competitively and want a durable string something like polyester, or a hybrid combo of polyester and standard synthetic gut is a pretty good option.

However, if you are playing very recreational and you basically literally never break strings I'd just buy Prince Synthetic Gut (with Duraflex works) 16 or 17. It's a very standard, solid, widely available, and fairly cheap string. I'd string it at around 55 or 56 lbs. if you want something in the middle and don't play competitively. Obviously lower is more power, higher is more control.
