Help choosing strings please
I just recently demoed some racquets and loved the Wilson steam 99s. So i decided to buy it. The strings that I was playing with while demoing was the Luxilon 4g. The only problem is heard that since its a poly it needs to be replaced fairly often. I am a very competitive tennis player being number 1 or 2 singles on my high school team but I haven't ever really cared about the strings I have on my racquet. So i just wanted to know is it true that poly's need to be replaced a lot. And if so is there alternatives that play similar to Luxilon 4g that will last longer so I wont have to spend as much money during my last season of high scool tennis. I would really appreciate the help. Thanks.

Steam 99S has an extremely open string pattern. Multis/natty gut will break way too quickly. Polys don't break very quickly, but they lose play ability after a short period of time. The best bang for your buck will by synthetic gut.
