Default More Precise Green Zone

So I completed the green zone spl again in a 50LCM pool. My suggested range is 36-46.
Tuned up with a 500 rotating focal points every 50m. Time was 8:54 avg 1:47/100m and stroke count was an average of 44spl for a tempo of 1.13. I did not use the TT during this tuneup.
TT spl time
1.15 41 1:44
1.13 40 1:42
1.11 43 1:42 Lost focus for one length
1.09 40 1:41
1:07 42 1:40
1.05 42 1:40
1.03 43 1:39
1.01 44 1:38
0.99 44 1:37
0.97 46 1:35 Lost focus - thinking about keeping up with beep
0.95 44 1:35
0.93 45 1:34
1.00 44 1:39
RPE was approx in the 6-7 range at .93. Decided to go back to 1.00 to slow down and see how many spl I could gain back and watch the time. I was close to the first time I passed 1.0 speeding the tempo trainer up.
Today I swam 5 x 500 and maintained stroke count at 42-44 and tempo was between .97 and 1.00. I only wore the tempo trainer on 1 500 at 1.00. So seems like for me 42-44 is a more precise green zone.
