I would start at 54lbs since you have the 17 gauge which is a tad livelier. I'd add a total of 8" to the hoop of lead (2" either side of strings at 3&9) and counter with 8" wrapped around the top of the handle (under the grip) to keep the balance in check.

You should find the weight is going to add some depth to your ball, too, so that makes the 54lbs even more relevant.

Hope that helps,
Chris, TW
