I'd be tempted to loosen it a little next time - but would probably have more control issues.
I noticed on Smasher08's thread on this topic - he is in the low 50's in this setup.
He's also using a prestige mid 18x20 pattern. Small headsize with a tight pattern takes his 17g natural gut very well. Open patterns should play with a thicker gauge and increase the tension accordingly. What was just right when I used the Yonex 89 tour is a little too powerful on my 95d.
