11s. I find the strings are a bit floppy on the low side though.. so I might go 12s next. Good for finger strength too

10's and 11's.
I actually have found that a 10-46 set with an 11 on the high E string is what I like the most on my strat.

I have 9's on both of my electrics, and 10's on my acoustic. But I'm considering changing to 10's on my electrics.

11s. I play slide, and I need the extra string tension. Plus, I think the larger strings just suit a semi-hollow better.
Do YOU know who Les Paul is?

11's for the good sustain

9's on my Fender, Blackjack, and Tele-copy. 10's on my Hellraiser and semi-hollow. I'll probably end up putting 11's on the semi-hollow. Can't remember what's on the acoustic. Either 12's or 13's.

Unless otherwise stated, assume everything I say is in my opinion.
Perfect for metal. Easy to shred on but also gives a titanic low-end sound.

i use bass strings on my electric... how manlys that!

nah jks... i use 11's
I play 12's, but I've still got my stock strings on my SG right now... haven't really had much reason to change them yet. My tonality's kinda dimming down a little bit though so I think I'll change them in the near future.
