I want to buy some for my sopranino, but I don't know which ones are higher in tension.
These are the only ones so far, that I have found.

Any help or insight would be appreciated.

Try the Worth "Fats". They also come in browns depending on your preferences.

I ordered some on a whim and they were very high tension on my soprano; I was worried about bowing the top, they are that tight. Give them a shot if you are looking for tension.

Worth also do a variety called "hard" (CD or BD for Clear or Brown). They are high tension. I'm waiting for some at the moment for my longneck soprano.
