    Overall, these are nice strings...I like the playability and crisp tone. The only negative is that you have to change them more frequently. That's a good trade-off, though.
    I've been using the Marin M170's for about six years now and, no matter how I try, I can't find another string that works as well for acoustic guitar. They are bright, "phat", responsive, and have good overall tone. The only negative that I've found is that you have to change them a little more frequently; but at the price, that's not too painful.

                I use these strings on both of my acoustic guitars and even use them on my two solid bridge electrics. They have a great sound to them, and shine well with my play style. I usually keep a few new sets around for just in case I have a breakage during detuned sessions or over zealous playing, but they still usually last around four to six months of aggressive string attacks with a pick. Definately worth the money in my opinion.

                  These strings are so easy to fret and bend, while offering a consistant and bright tone.They are great for all players, especially those of us just playing at home for fun.It is getting hard to fret medium strings for me, so I switched to the extra light and now my fingertips don't hurt anymore.My Takamine now frets like a Taylor.

                        I bought these for a ~13 year old student of mine, for what appears to be a 1/2 size guitar, they are much easier to play for her than the more common gauges.

                          I got these string because they were cheap. I don't usually play an acoustic but I figured that if Martin made strings as well as they make guitars, I really couldn't go wrong. I really like the action with them and they stay pretty much in tune. All strings will lose their tune when you first put them on till you get the stretch out of them. But I have had to tune these less than the others. Great strings for the price. Can't go wrong.
