Wilson Gut and Mantis Comfort are the two softest strings I've tried. The fact that Pacific Tough Gut has the word "tough" in it would lead me to believe without playtesting that it is more stiff.

Take these numbers with a grain of salt. I've found many cases where my arm disagrees with their limited test data.

Does it mean that Pacific Tough Gut 16 L is a bit SOFTER than the Wilson Gut 16 ?
