It's not much about increased power, IMHO. It just totally quite characteristic of natural material you'll get used to (and fall in love with).
I needed about 20 hours of playing time to get used to it. And after that, I had to try a few different tensions to fine tune it. In my case, it was 5-10% higher tension than nylons.
