    My question is what is the best string balance, in gauges, in your opinion? I like light gauges but I'm thinking what gauges I should use to get the best balance tensionwise? Isn't it the reason players have custom gauges?

    When I was a roundwounds guy I liked very much the feel of La Bella DTB in the .43-.106 gauge. At the moment I'm trying different sets of flatwounds ... DTB Flats .39-.96 seems to work well but next week I'll put for the first time a TI Flats set on.
