What type of string to recommend to a new customer when.........

The Wilson Ncode I was working with was a retail prestrung racket. My customer brought this in for restringing, the strings were the factory strings and the customer actually liked the way it felt. My first thought was the stringing at best would have been midrange so with this racket possibly a 50-55 lb range. I decided to go with a 16g Wilson Sensation string at 55 lbs. I wanted to provide enough control yet not take away too much power for the customer. Stringing the racket at a higher tension might have been to 'boardy' feeling. Also by using a multifilament string, some comfort was built into the string. I will be waiting the call from the customer to see what she thought.
