What string gauge would be equal to = 9 gauges tuned a whole step UP?

I have a les paul with 9s on them. I dont like the loose feel. I tuned the 9s a whole step up and thats perfect for me. What string gauge would equal that tension, 10s or 11s? Thanks

are you sure that tension is good for your guitar's neck? it's gonna have about 20% more tension on it like that.

it looks like 10's will work for ya though.
