    To anyone who has used both of these strings how would you say they match up? and the pros and cons of each?

    Only tried the 17g. I found it too harsh for me.

    I think the 16g is a little harsher feeling than the 17g. I like the color of the 17g better also.

    Most will prefer the feel and power of the thinner version. I've been known to use the 16 gauge in a Dunlop 200G at 45 lbs. The control and pop is very good and I simply can't break the string. Dynamite maintains good playing characteristics for a relatively long time, too.
