I've been playing guitar for a couple of years now, and have been using the same strings.
They're d'addario XL nickel wound(with the orange circle on the pack)
Anyway, i love the strings ,but haven't used any others since ive started.
I play and Ibanez and usually play blues, heavy metal, deep purple kind of stuff and so on.
I'm looking for a string that is easy to slide on and bend(especially bend).
Any recommendations or thoughts would be great and appreciated.

Oh and I have a Floyd Rose, so should I be buying strings that are longer or heavier or lighter?

nah just use whatever you find comfortable (for the floyd).

it's up to you really regarding the strings, the easiest thing to do (if you can be bothered changing strings a bunch of times) is to buy a bunch of different strings and see what you like.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

^Agreed, strings are a very personal preference. It's worth trying different strings although if you've been happy with the strings you've been using for the last couple of years you may end up going back to them. The major difference would be getting full steel, core and winding, good for a bit of top-end and an overall old-school sound. I quite like them, would recommend trying them, though they're not everyone's cuppa.
