thicker= stiffer,. a stiffer string would decrease dwell time, reducing feel. generally, people tend to associate softer strings with having more feel. however, you can try out whatever you like.

From your last post, I gather you are confusing feel with "control", so maybe in your world, ya, thicker means more feel....

There are two factors at work. There is the big giant THUD that you hear and feel when you swing as hard as you possibly can.

And then there is the feel of being able to totally control the ball sometimes demonstrated in touch shots like a drop shot or a lob. I think that's what most people consider is "feel".

no i onderstand what feel is okay
its like the ability to have a total feel of the ball when you hit those drop shots and having the sensation of being able to feel that lob as you hit it

and i was just thinking if more gut hits the ball then more vibration...etc will be passed through

I think you should think of it as thinner strings transmitting the vibrations better. Thicker strings will dull it out a bit in comparison.

I think thicker would mean less feel.

With polys I get feel only when the gauge is quite thin. Would the same logic apply to gut: thicker gauges mean less feel; thinner gauges give more feel?

i also noticed i large difernce in feel between 18 and 16 gauge polys also
but poly have no feel so thinner more elastic is better
but gut has huge feel so what has mroe feel?
more gut
or
less gut but more elastic
