You should do the high 40s, with that little head.

46/48 with VS gut 17g / SPPP 17L g. This hybrid feels fantastic in a PS85.

Agreed, Look I stung mine with legend 17g at 55lbs and that was simply too stiff imo, now if you have a really high SW and/or static it may be different.

Other wise you aren't going to have a sweet spot at all and enjoy hitting all flat and/or no pace with the higher tension stock

53 works for me and still keeps the ball in. tried 50 and got too many long balls.

Without knowing your swing style, I can't make a recommendation.
What tension have you tried with NXT ?. You really need to limit yourself to one variable at a time. It matters little what the Poly guys are stringing if you are a Multi_Man.:)
