    I´m playing with the 16L love de power, control, spin and durability but i check that the 17 version has this properties compared with 16L
    17 16L
    Stifness 189 230
    Energy Return 83 88
    Spin 6.6 5.9

    Are those numbers real i mean does anyone feel the diference? also which one last more?

    Thanks

    I have been using the 17 gauge, but have used a a few sets of 16L a few months back. From what I remember:

    The 17 had a bit more power, spin, and was softer.
    The 16L was a bit more controlled (predictable response), and lasted longer.

    The difference is noticeable, but only if you play with the 2 different strings back to back. Both are great

    I prefer the 17. I also played with the 18 gauge. Excellent for the first 3 weeks..after that it went dead. I strung it at 45 lbs.
