Anyone here using 3 52mm springs in V config /|\ ?

Just curious if anyone is using 3 52mm springs inn the /|\ configuration on their guitars and how you like it...pros and cons. Currently I have a Js1000 using 3 47mm springs in ||| configuration. Is 3 52mm springs in the /|\ config going to be stiffer then 2 47mm in the /\ config?

I have my guitars in each of the configs and I don't really notice much difference. Not to mention I rarely use the whammy much anymore.

I've read that the /|\ shape stretches the springs out just enough to give a better feel.
I don't know for sure, I've never measured the distances.
