NRG @ 58 stiffer than Forten Sweet @ 50??
According to RSI, NRG17 rates 190 and Forten Sweet 17 rates 194 in stiffness. I am going for max comfort and thought to try some multis but it seems with the such a small difference that NRG at 58 wouldn't be any more comfortable than FS at 50.

Anyone have an opinion on whether these numbers hold true or does the multi still play softer? If the difference is minimal I'll stick with the $3 Forten!!

Only way to know for sure is to try it.

NRG is a soft string, but it seems to string up fairly tight. Haven't used Forten Sweet in a while, and wouldn't guess as to which of your choices would produce the most power, but as far as stringbed stiffness, I'd bet on the NRG at 58 being the tightest.

Forten Sweet does not play as stiff as the numbers would lead you to believe.
It's a good guideline, but high test stiffness does not always mean harsh nor does a low number always mean comfortable.

Remember, all RSI tests are done on a single string @62 lbs.
