Neither, get .011's. Just kidding, get what you want. Also depends on what you want to play with them.

are the super slinky good?

Yes they are very good strings, i've been playing on them for a year and a half, and their the best stings i've ever used.

I would recommend the lighter ones for blues and such. And trust me here: get D'Addarios, not Ernie Ball. D'Addario last a lot longer, and are a lot more durable from my experience.

I've used GHS Boomers for 10 odd years, I've never had any complaints and new boomers sound ace. I know I did use D'Addario's at one stage, I used to have problems with them slipping from the pegs that used to piss me off to no end.

If you play blues you should be ashamed of considering such light gauge strings, start with 10's and work up to 11's man the tone is just so uncomparabley better with heavier strings, and anyone who says light have just as good tone is wrong. Most people (with obvious exceptions) use light gauges becasue they are too weiny to build up to heavier gauges, you can't say anyone thinks light strings have better tone by comparison. And esspecialley blues, blues is ALL about the tone man. Srv used ****ing 18's at one point he couldn't get heavy enough, and just listen to his tone.

good thicker is better, you should work your way up to atleast 11's. and dude thick strings isn't for just blues. it increases your tone no matter what it'll alway sound better. Most metal guys use heavy strings too. And if you don't like them don't base it on the gauge that isn't it, try same gauge differnt brand. If you like the sound but the strings are too hard to play just wait a few days play a lot and you'll get as used to them as you were the light gauges.

yeh like once then he bruised his fingers then went back to what he normally uses .14s

.13s is the highest you really want to ever go , SRV wasnt human, unless you have hands of iron

I agree I was jsut giving an example, 13's are the highest you'll ever want to go. I'm defenitly not going above what I use now 12's. I couldn't imagine how hard 14's would be to play.
