Great strings

Providing I don't get another bad batch of strings, these are my go to strings.
They have an awesome sound and seem to last longer than other brand strings I've used.
I mark them as a rating of eight, but generally it would be a ten. I usually buy these strings in three 3-packs (9 sets) and normally have no trouble with them. The previous nine sets I brought, about six sets that were of poor quality. Now, that is extremely odd. I've gone years without getting a bad set. I guess I just got a bad batch of strings. This time I purchased two 3-packs and so far I've put a set on my LP and my Ibanez and haven't noticed anything wrong with them. As noted, hopefully that was just a bad batch. I've been using Erine Ball for years. (previously Hybrid Skinkys, now Regular Slinkys)
Value wise, I have never played with a better string and for the price. It's a steal in my opinion.

These strings keep e unraveling back near the bridge, hardly getting a few days out of them, I have been playing for fun for 30 yrs, and cannot recall strings lasting this short of time.....hopefully just a bad run?

Going to try another brand for awhile.....

                  I've used these strings plenty of times before, they sound good and have a great feel. I like them on my Strat and my Les Paul. They last as well as any others, and much better than some that I've had rust on me after a very short time (humid climate here in the Houston area). The deal I got on the 3-pack was great, so if you see them on sale be sure to grab some.
