Which string gauge should i use low tension strings and easier bends on Eb tuning?

i've been using elixir .10 but they are too stiff, can't i get anything softer?

i play metal

Go down a gauge to 0.09's and if they're still too stiff then go down to 0.008's but that's a last resort try using a 9-42 or 9-46 and see how they feel.

hmm, i'm just afraid to lose the power to cut through even though im lead... my band's type of sound is kinda of dirty black metal you know..

but thanks anyway i'll give it a try

when playing metal I say use at least .12's. work on your finger strength.
