Best Strings for a Hollow Body?

What would you suggest are the best strings for a hollow body styled electric guitar? I was going to get Elixrs as usual but I would like some other opinions. When I first bought the guitar there were flatwound strings but I didn't really like them that much.

I have flat wound strings on my ES-375 and will probably never put round wound strings on it ever again.

Unless you want a jazz sound just use whatever string you put on solid body guitars.

Use heavier guage strings than you would use on a solid body to help make the top vibrate more, improving tone.
