Just picking up the following bits of the conversation:

I think this is actually quite a valid point. As David pointed out,
many forcefields have been parameterized with respect to density and
energy data. So there is actually no guarantee that atomistic
forcefields do particularly well with respect to pulling simulations
(although many people have used them for such simulations).
The gold standard should probably be to compare CG pull simulations
directly to corresponding experimental data whenever possible.
So have even more fun :)
