I am not sure if I am answering your questions but I think I have about as close a situation to what you want. I have a Gamma 6004 and a Wise. I can tell the difference in the sound of the string bed and feel of my racquets when I use a crank. I used to tend to have a favorite racquet.
When I switched to the Wise, the sound of the string bed and feel of my racquets are identical. No more favorite racquets, and I just use them on a daily rotation to get even wear ( I use gut). By the way, I am a dentist too, so I am very anal about every little thing. The best thing about the Wise is the consistency.
