Another vote for Dunlop Heavy Cores. They sound and feel really good. And they are cheap! They have an interesting attribute that they feel slightly more tense than most other strings of same size. IE its set of Heavy Core "Heavy" set of 10 feel like they are between 11 and 10 in tension. Is it a special attribute or are they just 10.5 thick in reality, no idea but it feels good.

Only thing I hope they would have a set more suitable for B standard and Drop A. Their Heavy Core "Heaviest" 12-54 are close but just does not cut it (Work really well with C and Drop B). They have written themselves into a corner by calling that set "Heaviest", so if they ever introduce Heavy Core strings for baritone tunings what would they call it? Br00tziest?

I used to use Ernie Ball Super Slinky's but now I use D'Addario XL (10-49) and I love them, although the Ernie Ball's felt nicer for bends the D'Addario's feel better overall to me

Yup, Dunlop 9's are my favorite as well. I play 10's as well, usually on Gibson scale or Floyd rose axes.

I heard Beard plays 7's. They sell a signature set.
