I had some .09s on my strat and I really liked the way the action felt, and the overall feel as well but the high strings were a little flimsy for me so I figured I'd go up one guage with those keeping the low strings thin.

On my strat is standard: .10, .13, .17, .24, .32, .42

On my SG in Open E or Standard: .09, .11, .16, .26, .36, .46

This is the first time I've tried messing with the guages of my strings, does anyone see any problems with it?

Thanks!

No

Everyone has their preference, as long as you adjust the truss rod and action to suit and what not, if necessary.

^ agreed. watch out for your action on the strat if it has a floating bridge, the heavier gauge can pull the bridge up a tad. that happened on my strat when i went up to 10's.
I've been imitated so well I've heard people copy my mistakes.

I used Fender Super Lights on my Strat and carried on with my Gibsons for a while.
.008, .011, ..014, .022, .030, .038
But the heavier my music became the more I wanted to go up.
