The thicker gauge does feel a little stiffer than the thinner gauge, but it didn't make a whole lot of difference to us. The racquet is so lively that we wanted a little more stiffness/control out of the stringbed. We played with it at a very high tension for the same reason. When we tested the racquet, we were stringing it in the low-to-mid-60s.
