so ive got an opened pack of dadarios. my strings need replacing and i also have a fresh pack

however ive felt down the strings of the opened pack and cant feel any dirt or anything and they look fine

so should i use them or the new ones, bearing in mind my guitar is cheap and the bridge saddles are nasty and i need to file them smooth everytime i replace my strings

what do you guys think?, will the opened pack be ok?
It all depends on what you do with/need your guitar for,,,,If the strings feel alright to you then they are probably ok to put on.
i don't get it... the strings have no dirt on them because they are new...
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
the open strings will be fine as long as you dont touch them and get sweat or oil on them, they will stay good for a long time.
