But then I got a constant pull machine, and I started in addition, upping the tension b/c I was having trouble keeping the ball in. Then I discovered GPro and realized that I got the same soft, cushy, ball-pockety feeling from it even strung fairly high on a constant pull (m:61,x:59).

That's the tension I've been using consistently with it. I've considered even nudging it a tad higher but haven't tried it yet.
The Exo Tour has a flex rating of 52. It just does not have any pop, so you need the lower tension to compensate for the high flex. KCraig is using gut/poly in the low 50s with the same racket.
