I am not a 5.0, but do hit with a lot of 4.5 guys on my 8.5 combo teams and 8.0 mixed teams, so suggest you try B5E/ Tecnifibre HDX 130mm or 135 mm if you can get it.
I used BE5/X-One 16g for four years - bought both by the reel and only needed 16 for the crosses.
HDX Is soft like X-One and NRG2 but last longer.
