Today my hybrid pattern was changed to provide more durability with Luxilon

I provide numerous custom hybrid combinations for my stringing clients based on several factors. Two factors that cannot be overlooked and that are important to some degree are 'Durability' and 'Cost'. Sometimes the phrase " if only cost was not a factor I could provide the ultimate string combo!" but ' Cost' is a big factor. I have tried various hybrid combinations in a Wilson Hyper Hammer 5.3 and found a great mix with using Wilson Hollowcore 16 in the Mains and Gosen Poly for the crosses. I strung the mains at 55 and the crosses at 52. My customer loved this combination but it broke after 1 month. We switched to the durable hybrid. The Luxilon Alu Power 125 in the mains and Prince Premier 17g in the crosses. It will have a tighter and less responsive feel, durability factor should be about double. What do you think.?
