Post 2011 SP101 .22LR Wolff springs #17114

Has anyone used the spring kit made for the post 2011 .22LR SP101?
It comes with a 8# trigger spring and a 13# 14# and 15# hammer spring.
I think the difference from the #17113 is the springs are stiffer but shorter so maybe less pre-load or stacking?
I tried the 13# hammer spring and thought it would be OK but when I went to the range last weekend I had more FTF's than expected in DA. 0 FTF's in SA.
I really hate to change to a stiffer spring!
Let me hear from you!
Which hammer spring works for you?

Just got my SP101 the other day, tested it, swapped springs to the lightest on each, then tested again and had to go heavier. The 13 pound was too light on the hammer, had two FTFs out of 50 rounds. Haven't tested the 14 lb yet. I didn't polish any internals though, just cleaned and checked for burrs.

The Wolff 13 lb felt really light to me (real easy to install), the 14 lb felt noticeably stiffer when compressing. Trigger pull is still much improved.

After I've put quite a few rounds through the 22, I might swap in the lighter spring again (assuming the 14 lb is at or close to 100%). I typically won't polish the internals, I let them do their own polishing over time.

I had more FTF's than you had.
My SP101 is in for repair (spitting lead) I will install the 14# spring when it's returned and see how that feels. I hope increasing the spring rate won't be that noticeable. I compared the 13# to the 14# spring, same wire thickness but a couple coils longer (for a little more push?)
I'm really disappointed how stiff these guns are!
