I have been trying out different sets of 9's and 10's and Hybrid sets for about the past three years now. This set is the perfect hybrid set. E,A,and D,are from a set of 10's and G,B,and E anr from a set of 9's. I did like the 91/2 set from GHS Boomers, but the bass strings were a bit too thin. This set is perfect. I first tried them quite a while back, but had to explore other options. I now realize after seeing what else there is out there, and realized this is my favorite set. The thinner treble strings help as I have had issues with my fretting hand before (carpal tunnel). These bend easily and sound nice and full. My favorite Rock strings. I recommend them to all Rock players.

      I love the slinkys best, but these have the same heavy strings, but the lighter strings are easier to bend. Same Ernie Ball quality as slinkys.

          Comments about Ernie Ball 2222 Nickel Hybrid Slinky Orange Electric Guitar Strings 3 Pack:

          The Ernie Ball 9-46 strings have a great tone. I have had a problem with the 1st string unraveling on me though. I emailed Ernie Ball and they actually called me back regarding the problem and sent me replacement strings. Rare and great customer service.
          I have been using Ernie Ball strings for many years and this is the first problem that has occurred. I will continue to use the Ernie Ball strings.
          The Ernie Ball Power Peg Pro is a great product also. I use it to wind new strings and replacing drum heads, as a drum key will fit in the winding slots.

              The Ernie Ball 2222 Nickel Hybrid Slinky Orange Electric Guitar Strings are the best strings that I've found for my blues style playing. The 9-46 gauge gives great bends and a solid bottom. Also, the strings have a great feel.
