    ^^^^^^ Uh i dunno what you're smokin.....
    Anyways, I would guess 17, since they mostly use polys? And they don't care about durability..... Maybe 16. Someone else care to comment?

    i would like to believe its a bell shaped curve with both ends (15g or 18g) being less popular. Nothing much can determined with this stats.

    That would be 16L or 1.25mm.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    I would just like to know what is the common gauge used by the pros. If its still 16g's. During the late 80's 15g is the most common. Now, there are gauge 18 or even 19's.
