Right, so in that case I would assume there is a typo and go with whatever tension is quoted on the sets that also have diameter info.
It is not so easy. They put diameters in all places. The diameters are the same on their website for the Corum 500CR trebles and for the Corum 510CR and the Classic 540CR trebles. Just that the packs (and Cantiga web tables) have lowere tension figures.
The situation around high tension trebles and Alliance trebles is very similar.
For the HT classic basses (540 line) it seems the changed the diameters of the 5A and 6E strings.
I am inclined to believe the Cantiga figures since these are their newest strings. For Corum 500 AJ (Corum Alliance high tension) they quote figures on their website that are compatible to Corum 510 AJ. Based on that I believe their current Corum red basses to have similar tension to the HT and Cantiga basses and that the higher figures one finds in various places relate to old products not sold any longer (or they changed the way they measure things).
Savarez tension figures are a mess. This was discussed here before. I hope they clarify that at some point.
