    Very odd numbers for Technifiber Black Code


    231 Tecnifibre Black Code 18 225.7 8.14 13.95 0.51 22.5 88.5
    236 Tecnifibre Black Code 17 270.9 8.27 11.35 0.47 20.1 90.2
    237 Tecnifibre Black Code 16 276.6 8.18 10.78 0.44 19.4 89.5

    Seems very odd that 18 gauge is that different in stiffness from the others. Perhaps transposed number from the total tension?
    If it is correct, do you have any idea why the 18 would be completely different than the other two? Would it really be made of different materials?

    Or maybe the 2 in front of the 31 is a typo?

    Oops, cut and pasted badly. Was referring to the difference in stiffness. The 16 gauge is 276.6, the 17 is 270.9 (difference of 5.7) and the 18 gauge is 225.7 (difference of 45.2). 45.2 doesn't seem to be a reasonable difference in stiffness due to gauge (unless there is something very different about the string make-up).
