    Forza makes a .75 mm string that is virtually indestructable.

    If you're set on Yonex, then Yonex BG63 (0.74mm).

    Or you could go with tennis string but I doubt you will be able to share any grommets. :p

    BG 70Pro is very durable. More durable and holds the original tension longer than BG65. The only downside is that it's not as responsive.

    Hmm... no idea since I have never used BG63 before. How tight does your client want his racquet strung at? For me personally, BG70Pro is unresponsive unless strung higher than 25lbs. Same with BG80 although at a lesser degree (it felt very responsive at 23lbs). Of course, the higher the tension strung, the sooner the string will snap.

    dont ask me...he just doenst like to get it restrung every 2/3 weeks...he's a heavy slicer and wants it strung at +-19lbs (9kgs). firstly tried ashaway micropower or soemthing, but it was a rotten batch: some parts of the string were already damged when i got it out...
    now he's got a bg65, wond er how long it'll last...

    so maybe i shoudl rephrase: what is the most durable string when strung at low tensions. neglect playbility!
