LaBella Arabic is for F-f' tuning and Pyramid Orange is C-c', so it's a bit strange to compare them.
The average tension for both is pretty similar, but the LaBella set is slightly higher overall I believe.
But if you got the optional high f'f' pair for Pyramid orange and tuned it F-f' I think they are very close.

Got it. In that case, I think the Pyramid set is pretty similar, maybe a little lighter than LaBella overall.
