9s are very easy to bend on, in fact they are so light that they are uncomfortable to me, for both fretting and picking. But give them a try, everyone is different.

Yeah, they are. You're able to get the bends a bit wider, though some may say they feel too thin, so try a pack and see. I think the smoothest feeling and longest lasting .09s are DR myself.

I switched to 10's recently on my alexi. I find them much better for alternate picking and heavier stuff. I dont feel that they are too much harder to bend.

Yeah, they're easier to bend.

I find them uncomfortable.

I use .11's.

9 = eaier to break adn anything below Standard D tuning they will flop like a bitch
10 = not much harder to bend and give a slightly "fuller" tone (ghs ROCK-ITS 10's are grrrrreeeat)

I use hybrid slinkys cause I like my low strings thicker for heavier sounding power chords and for tuning to drop d and my high strings are 9s so i can bend the **** out of them

I started with 9s and it was good for learning techniques etc, but I switched to 10s (Standard tuning) about 2 years ago and I very much prefer them now. The bends aren't much harder and really once you get used to them it won't make much of a difference for your playing.
