    Has this been discussed before? I hope the difference is just in the thickness, and not quality? Like to hear some comments on their relative tension holding ability, power level and durability.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, that's so. VS Team has more power at the same tension. Like other 16 gauges, though, VS Touch is holds its tension somewhat longer and is more durable. In fact, when switching from a 17 gauge synthetic to any natural gut you may want to consider going up a gauge, or at least adding string savers.
