Thanks for the help!
I have found all those strings to perform well anywhere in the 50-60 pound range.

Pass, too expensive.

Thanks for the kudos. Good to see you back here. I don't drink beer anymore so I can't help you there.

I think some of these ladies are using synthetic gut and would benefit from a good arm friendly, value priced multifilament. My reference tension question more relates to a target starting point with the multifilaments you'all are using that will help me in getting the girls going.

Thanks again.
I think Maxim Touch Classic is the perfect string for this scenario since it is very soft and also has a lot of power. Another one to look at may be Genesis Xplosion.
