^^^^ I liked excel in the pd. It is very comfortable. However, if tension falls to low it gets too springy.
FXP at 54 should be about right. Yes it seemed to be a very low powered multi. Evidently it is a co-poly core wrapped with syn fibers, so that would explain it. I also agree that the fxp tour does not have that trampoline affect.
