The AGF thread puts forth comparisons to string sets that are not even the same gauge diameter of the SCGC strings.  They are comparing .012-.052 or .053 not the larger diameters of an EJ17 or EJ19.  Below is where I compare the gauge and the tension of comparable D'Addario strings and the total tension of the EJ17/19 for comparison.  Assuming the AGF thread numbers are correct, and there is little reason to doubt them (?), the differences in core diameter and windings can make a significant difference. 

Edit:  Sorry that the table alignment lost its structure during the paste...  The numbers on the left are Santa Cruz's numbers, the numbers in the middle column are tension comparisons of D'Addario strings of the same or near gauge size, and the numbers on the right are the gauge diameters of the actual EJ19 and EJ17 sets with their tension totals at the bottom.

Another review...

https://sixstringhub.com/2015/11/10/santa-cruz-parabolic-tension-acoustic-guitar-strings-review/

P.S.  They are expensive at $18.  I ordered a set from Chicago Music Exchange and will put them on a bluegrass guitar to test...

Hey George , would you mind checking your figures again. Thanks for posting it

Here is where the numbers came from, I just put them in a spreadsheet...  I cannot attest to their accuracy, this link was sent to me by someone that uses them.

https://www.acousticguitarforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=468898

Lots of discussion on this AGF thread about the validity of the numbers too

I found a tension chart with gauges and put them into an Excel sheet...  Quite a bit less than D'Addario EJ equivalents...

You've piqued my curiosity.

Those T5 guitars and copies of them were all the rage for a while.

Santa Cruz swears that tension outweighs gauge to the point where there are no charts that compare either one that I can find.  Have we had discussions about the merits and or cons of these strings?  Any experience with them out there?
