Um, did you check to see what the tension IS in each?? Two different stringers, and shipping in cold airplane hulls have done more to cause questions than I'm up to typing about.... Before pondering it into oblivion, perhaps use a DT tester and also compare WHERE the sweetspot lies in each frame. You may find that your contact favors one frame over the other...

You have answered your own question as you are forgetting about Swing Weight (SW); heavier head will have more SW.

Guess I have to learn to read MORE carefully before posting. Thanks for the bail-out Tennez. I over-thought the problem. What would Sir Arthur Conan Doyle write about this? I think Sherlock MIGHT ream my deductive abilities LOL
