i changed my strings today and i put on a set of elixers, i have been playin for about 4 or 5 years so i know how to properly change a string, anyway, i was tuning up about 4 hours after i had changed them and all the other strings were tuned and i got the the high e and it wouldn't tune and then all of a sudden it shot out of the tuning peg, i have a Fender Deluxe Player strat, this has never happen before and its the first time i've had elixers on, i was wondering if anyone else had this problem or if it was jsut a bad string

Probably just a bad string...don't buy another set of elixirs to replace it, the high strings are just plain steel. You won't notice a difference if you just get Ernie Balls or DR or whatever's cheapest.

There's a difference between elixers and dr ...

you probably wound it a bit wrong in the tuning peg, also being a deluxe strat owner i know the pegs are like a basses and the strings can sometimes pop out if your not careful when youre putting them on. also when youre putting one on make sure you cut quite a bit off cause otherwise there is FAR too much wrapped round the peg an this could also cause it to become loose.
