I have a set of 200GMW and I have one strung with Klip detonator at 59#/57 in a 17 gauge. Plays very nicely, but wanted to firm up the string bed a bit so I figured I'd try the same set up in a 16 gauge. I strung with the same strings in a 16 gauge on the other 200GMW at 60#/58#. The 16 gauge was much more powerful than the 17 gauge, even at a higher tension. So my question is: given the same string and racquet, is a 16 gauge more powerful than the same string set up in a 17 gauge?
