New TI Flats on my ASAT-Question...

    Yesterday I put some TI Flats on my new ASAT. I know the TI flats are a lower tension string. After I put the TI's on I needed to adjust the neck alittle because there wasn't enough string tension to pull the neck back to its previous position. I gave it alittle bow. Actually its pretty flat, like it was setup when the previous factory G&L strings were on. I seem to get more fret buzz now with the TI's.
    Is this normal because they are alittle more "floppy" and looser tension? They feel amazing.
    Maybe alittle more neck relief? I don't really want to raise the action.
    Maybe just leave it alone?

    Give it a day; if it still buzz tomorrow, give it a tweak.
