Well... from experience, SOTX strings seem to be more durable.

Is the numbering for SOTX strings equivalent to that of Yonex strings?

Yonex BG-65 for example is a 0.68mm string, wheras the SOTX 1040-Ti65 is 0.65mm.
Personally, I feel that the Yonex BG-65 is a bit more durable than SOTX 1040-Ti65... The 1040-Ti65 feels a lot better though, especially at high tensions. I used the 1040-Ti 65 because it feels better than BG-65, but can be found for roughly the same price. It offers the performance of higher priced Yonex strings such as the BG-80 and BG-85, and they're at least as durable-- cheaper cost though!

The feel of SOTX 1040-Ti65 is definetly very good at higher tensions. But the power seems to be lacking. At lower tensions, the power is very good, but the feel is lacking. I think it's a very tempermental string... changing the tension a few pounds has a huge effect on how it plays, much more so than the yonex strings I've used. Its also the most slippery. I have only used it on two occasions however, so I may still change my mind when I use it a few more times.
