i used to use them in standard all the time. i ended up switching to power slinkys, but while i used the sthb they served me well

no not the hybrids. the strings in the orange-red package, not the bright orange.

yeah they'll be fine for standard tuning, go ahead and get some. they are great for drop tunings though, perfect.

yes they are fine for standard tuning. 12's can get in standard so they definitely can, im using them now aswell.

I personally hate Ernie Ball's i've tried them many times and they've either corroded within a week or broke right out of the package... I'm more of a Dunlop guy. I've used the Zakk Wylde 10 - 46s for 2 years now and have never broken one despite tuning from Standard to Drop C. That's just me... tons of people swear by EB's though.

Theyr great for standard, I used to use them on my 25.5" scale ibanez in E standard, drop D and drop b on low 3 / standard on high 3. I've just gone back to daddario recently tho and probs wont be going back any time soon, forgot how good they sound/feel and theyr cheaper.

You're serious? Daddarios feel bad in about 3 days, EB's last for weeks.

Yeah, they're great.

D'Addario makes practically the same strings by the way, you might want to check them out. They're the EXL140 Light Top/Heavy Bottom's.
