Also, what is the advantage of using 16 gauge over 18? All pros useRpm 16 or 17 and not the 18 why is that?
18 snaps quickly, i would just stick to the 16 or 17. 17 is still durable though. And for tension i would go low 40-50 because rpm looses its tension quite fast. My rpm on my pd2012 is strung at 50lbs. I demoed the apd 2013 and loved rpm at 48 lbs.
