So I hit again today and boy it played so much better. The stringbed loosened up a bit (I tried applying some pressure to middle of stringbed) and played so much softer. I was actually enjoying hitting with it and didnt want to stop!

I guess next time I will string a bit lower or just let the tension settle in. But there were still hints of "boardiness" on some off center hits. But that's to be expected with any string.
