    I've used BHB 17 in my Aerogel 300s at 65# and have liked it much. I just got an AG200 and was thinking doing the same. Now what has me worried is will the tighter string patter of the 200 make the strings feel a lot harder at 65#. I don't want arm trouble. I am trying to string this up before I go to sleep so quick responses welcome.

    Yes, the tighter pattern will make it feel a little "harder."

    Lower the tension.

    I say drop 3-5 lbs on the 18x20 pattern.

    you know what guys just remembered I had Klipper mate synthetic gut 16 ultra-fibre, came with my machine, it feels so soft and good I'm gonna put that at 66#. Yeah great idea cause the AG200 came strung with Dunlop max touch hybrid 17 and it felt weird and harsh besides I was never going to break it!
