      These fill the void since fender stopped offering the 9-40 set, I think they are balanced but I'm still not sure if I like them better than the fender 150xl.

        These strings are perfect. I find the balanced tension makes bending a lot easier and consistent, and my intonation is a lot easier to dial in.

            Comments about D'Addario EXL120BT Balanced Tension X-Lite Electric Guitar Strings 10-Pack:

            I think these strings will be great for me at some point. I have been playing for over 50 years and I normally play 11s or 12s. For many years I have been trying to change my playing style so I can use lighter gauge strings. I play SRV, Hendrix, Trower stuff and that style of playing for the most part whether I am covering those people or playing other classic rock and blues.

            My finger joints are starting to feel the pain of the heavier gauge strings after gigs. I tried 8s and they were way too soft (I read the Billy Gibbons stories). I went back to heavy core 11s (fabulous strings). I recently tried these .009 strings but probably should have went to 10s instead. I think these are great strings but I still have to train myself to play on lighter strings....using a lighter touch on both hands. Tweaking my amp and pickups, I have been able to get the same sound as I get with the heavy strings (close anyway...people won't notice). Sound is not a problem It is a matter of me getting used to the lighter strings. I will keep at it. I have used D'addario strings for lots of years in the past and they are great strings.

                Been using these forever, never let me down. I never have strings break and the consistency of these strings over the 15 years I have used them exclusively is simply the best. They are always the same!
