Not sure if I agree with your premise. How would one even go about testing for weave tightness? Imo no 8 carrier braid is going to be "stiffer" than 4 carrier braids of the same diameter. I think you should be looking for the roundest 4x braid you can find, and see if it works for you in your applications.
