If you like the power slinkys, then I'd say just stick with them. That's what I tend to use for standard/drop D.

I personally can't stand Ernie Balls, they corrode very quickly for me while a set of D'Addarios last several gigs. Everyone has different skin chemistry though.

Try a set of GHS Boomers.
