Question Multi vs Syn hybrid increased durability?

I use Syn gut 16 in mains and in crosses. I only get about 1 hour of life from the Syn, under various tension combinations and the mains always notch and break. I cant move to poly because of tennis elbow problems. I am thinking of trying a multi in the crosses - does anybody think this will increase the life of the Syn mains? Theory being that the Syn will be rubbing against a softer cross string and may last a bit longer. If so, what tensions do you recommend? I also though of using a 17 gage Syn in the crosses but that might not help as the thinner crosses might carve up the mains faster. Any help appreciated, I need to get more than an hour out of a string job.

Multi will break a little bit faster than Syn gut. You could try using a thicker gauge multi, syn gut or a soft poly. Also maybe if you still use syn gut or multi, you could string at a higher tension, so it doesn't pocket the ball as much.
