Default Resonators and String Tension

I'm just starting to play around a bit with resonators, but there aren't many available in the shops around me. I've been playing on a Mule and find that the string tension and weight are a lot heavier than my flattop and it takes noticeably more hand strength to play it cleanly. I'm curious about others' experiences with resonators. How do they compare in terms of their feel vs flattops and how much do you find that it varies across brands (e.g., National vs. Mule vs. Gretsch vs. Beard etc.)?
