      Im 56 and have played guitar since I was a young teen. I've tried lots of other strings but now all I use are Slinky Pinks. As you get older, heavy string guages can mess with your finger joints. Do yourself a favor and go Pink. They have a great tone and pick and bend superbly!

      Love the super slinky. I have been on green for my whole life, but when I put these bad boys on my Gibson SG, it was like playing a whole different guitar. Smooth quick and a great shallow sound. I love them.

          I've used Super Slinky's since they first came out in the 60's. These strings are very consistent; but if your a regular working musician I would change them before each gig or weekly. They have a very good sound when they are fresh.

              I really like these strings, They have a great sound
              I have tried the 10's and they are not so slinky to me; a little hard to bend; and the 8's are easy
              to bend but I think some of the low end is lost
              So I recommend the the 9's the #2223 pink.

                  I beat up these strings and can't remember breaking one. I'm sure it's happened but I don't remember. When they're fresh no strings sound better IMO.

                            Got these for a family member, an occasional player. Works fine. Easier on her fingers, so they encourage her to play more. Still great tone out of a Gibson Blues Hawk. I love E B slinkys. I use them myself on several guitars. They bring out the best in harmonics and sustain. They are durable both for bends and longevity.

                            Take the time to read the Ernie Ball story. Their commitment to quality and service in an age of disposability is inspiring.

                                I have been playing for 35 plus years I have used Ernie Ball super Slinkys religiously since the very first day I started. I have from time to time switched or should I say tried other brands and occasionally I've used different gauges but super Slinkys have always been my standard my preference I always come back to them. They are simply the best strings I've ever used. I'm not down with the whole idea of having ridiculously huge strings on my guitar equals better tone, over the years I've learned that's a bunch of BS. The consistency of the feel, tone and reliability has always been there.

                                  9's Super Slinky's is all I've ever played on my Strat. Great tone and bend for days. I was almost tempted to go with the D'Addario's for the cheaper price but I swung back away from the dark side and stuck with what I know and I'm glad I did. Awesome strings. Ernie Ball's compliment the Fender tone so well.

                                    I initially tried Ernie Ball strings because my idol and main influence Robin Trower used them. I stayed with them because of how good they are. I've been a guitarist for over forty years and I've tried most of the others and have always gone back to Ernie Ball. They have great tone, punch, and clarity and they last for a long time. They are also very elastic - you can really bend 'em and they wont break or go out of tune. I hardly ever break an Ernie Ball string and will only change them when they've gotten worn out. Ernie Ball strings are used by Robin Trower, Jimmy Page, Angus Young, Eric Clapton, Slash, Keith Richards, etc.,etc.,etc. Need I say more?
