    You'll be amazed at the thicker sound these strings give you, and they are still plenty manageable when it comes to bends/chokes...

        I have been using D'Addario for ages and recently decided to shake things up a bit. I have to say that I am quite impressed. These strings are consistent from set to set, have a good lifespan, feel & sound great. Very good strings

              Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit HT-9.5 Half-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

              10 is too hard, 9 is too weak for a Strat. At least for many players. 9.5 gauge solves the problem. DR strings never disappoints me.

                  Been playing for 17 years and have used many strings. I play mostly rock and metal. The DR Halftites are a great in between. They have the fatter sound and sustain of the 10's while retaining the ease of playing the 9's are known for. They also do well with half step or drop D tunings.
                  The only thing I would change is to beef up the 3rd and 4th strings a little more, but its about as perfect as it will get without doing custom orders.
                  Congratulations you have found your new strings.

                      I've always found 9's to feel spongy while 10's don't sound right. These are the right balance. They feel great and sound great.

                      used 9s and they seem to always break the high e. used 10's and seem to be a little to much on bending these 9.5 set for me are just right. still easy to bend and im not breaking strings

                      DR Strings are killer, the 9.5 set is excellent. They're a nice compromise between 9's and 10s.The 9.5s are more balanced in tension making them great for Floyd Rose style bridge. They sound great too, bright and warm.

                      For me, these strings are the PERFECT diameter. I like light gauge strings, and used nines, but sometimes they were a little too slinky and I would fumble around fingering. Tens always felt "too much". This diameter is perfect middle of the road. I can hear the high E better playing slide guitar, with the nines the sound would decay faster.
