I think your solution is on the right track, but for the wrong reasons. Like Mikeler, I don't think the string pattern is the cause of your string bed feeling boardy. There are many other uncontrolled variables, e.g. racket stiffness, head shape (not all 95's are of the same shape), stringing errors, and so forth.
In short, you have a few options:
1. Lower tension, as you mentioned. Many folks here string gut/poly in low- to mid-50's.
2. Go higher in gauge (thinner strings).
