Your best bet here is to optimize for doubles by moving 5/3 (2)

1. Cubeful 3-ply 5/3(2) Eq.: -0.863
0.068 0.000 0.000 - 0.932 0.000 0.000

2. Cubeful 3-ply 5/2 5/4 Eq.: -0.865 ( -0.001)
0.068 0.000 0.000 - 0.932 0.000 0.000

3. Cubeful 3-ply 4/off Eq.: -0.888 ( -0.025)
0.056 0.000 0.000 - 0.944 0.000 0.000
