I'm not sure about a way to reliably test it but have also found this to be true. The 120tpi carcass provides a more comfortable ride but it may well come at a price, as Deniz mentioned.  While attending a tire release event in the past – when brands would get us together with engineers etc to ride and grill each other on the new product – I was told they didn't go with a higher TPI because it wasn't as durable. A well-known rider and product developer echoed that sentiment. It's food for thought at least.
