Drop Tune Guitar Strings.

Hello I've been playing guitar for 3 years now and I am looking to get new strings for my Schecter C-1+. I have been looking at the DR Drop Down Tuning strings and the Ernie Ball Not Even Slinky strings and im not sure which would be better for playing down in drop A to drop C. I searched though the forums trying to find a direct comparison but could not find what I was looking for. I have used the DR strings before and they were decent at best in my opinion but I have always been a fan of Ernie Ball strings so I was wondering if anyone out there have tried both sets of strings and could tell me how the Not Even Slinky's compare to the Drop Down Tuning strings. Thank you.

If you are alternating tunings that much you probably won't find the perfect set of strings as they will be too tight at C and too loose at A

However I would look at 12s
