Hi I'm using 10's now and I'm basicly having problems bending the high e string... My guitar has 21 frets and sometimes I really need that 22 frete note to play scales...

Should I get new strings or am I just not applying enough strength?
Fapping is considered as strumming training

well yeah I'm kinda paranoid when bending the high e string thinking it might break

It won't break. End of.

I can bend 2 1/2 steps on 9's easily, so a full step should be easy enough on 10's, a half step should be no problem at all.

Man, I can vibrato half-steps with .10s.

[/silliness]

In all seriousness, though, don't worry. It won't break on a half-step bend, and if it does, you're probably not really using .10s.

That or the string is tuned too high.
