With which grommets on the rqts since I know you posted saying you we're swapping clear to black on the red version. Although I appreciate that the grommets shouldn't affect flex, only feel.

Is not 1 a tad? To me a tad is marginal, fractional or so. I know it's a different rqt but I felt that the 25th ed is stiffer than my red ones but not as stiff as the yet prestige mp, which iirc is 63(?). So, I'd agree with your perception.

I also need to check the data tha someone else has checked both rqts in stock form on an RDC and come up with different readings.

Either way, the 2 rqts feel slightly different to me, and the only difference between the 2 are the grommets.
