Hmmmm...according to the USRSA, "...a 17 gauge string will be about twice as elastic (100%) as a 15 gauge string, all other factors being equal. This increased elasticity results in lower dynamic stiffness (meaning the strings will feel more elastic) during ball contact".

My tendency is to believe the USRSA. They've done a tremendous amount of scientific study of what goes on when ball meets strings.
