Like I said in the OP, I prefer the 17 gauge version of this string. But even the 16g will add much comfort to your volleys. The 16 gauge has a very «dead» feel to me, but it helps if you want to control your power. It has less «spin potential» than the 17g version, but spin is much more function of your technique than your strings.
I used to have both my racquets strung with RPM blast/RIP, but one with the poly on the mains, and one with the opposite. I hated practicing volleys for half an hour with poly on mains...
