They all work well and last me at least 10 hours (with thicker strings staying playable longer). I think the 16L would be my favorite of the bunch, but that's personal preference as much as anything objective.
The weird thing is that I come from dunlop black widow @ 53/51lbs and I found a lot of spin besides softness. Now I'm trying TB 17 (1.20) and I do not find the same amount of spin of black widow, plus the stringbed is really stiff as hell. I would imagine 16L gauge :O
Maybe I like more live strings, BUT I don't like hybrid, too soft. I'm curious about other TB gauges, but maybe the best thing to do is try TB soft.
