Hey guys...
I usually use Super Slinkys... but I want to experiment with different gauges/makes.
I've been looking at the Elixir Anti Rust Strings 10-46... Though I could get 3 sets of Ernie Ball strings for the same price, and I'm not sure of the reliability of the Elexirs...

Basically I wan't something to solo fast with... And have awesome sounding riffage

That 1 set of Elixir strings could probably last longer than all 3 sets of the Ernie Ball strings.

I use GHS Dimebag .10's, nice n' light but crunchy as a cockroach! lol.

elixirs are the best i have ever used. the polyweb is good and doesnt rust with proper care! ernie ball strings are good but not as smooth feeling for solos as the elixirs!go wth the elixir

Stop dissing EB's, they are the best quality strings on the market, just are known for a shorter life span... BUT NOT THAT MUCH, they still last 2 weeks, maybe you should look in the fact your sweating to much or something (obese?) and fix that problem.

Well I've just ordered some Elixirs and bought some Fast Fret just to be safe...
And I will admit I have sweaty hands

I didn't really like the Elixir's when I played them, seemed a bit slippy, so I'm sticking with Ernie Balls.

I don't like coated strings. they feel too slippery for me, so I say look into some GHS Boomers. They last longer than EB's and are about the same price, and they're just as bright.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

+1 to that, GHS boomers are highly recommended for guitarists in the metal genres, wouldn't suggest them for too much more besides hard rock though.

+1 for boomers, they have a great sound that is bright yet still manages to be full. They are designed to be loud and as a result they even sound great unplugged. Although I use them for nearly everything but metal haha.

ELIXIRS FTW!!! seriously, wonderful strings. not only the best feeling in my personal opinion but also the longest lasting. i've had a set on my jet king for getting close to 3 or 4 months now. granted...they've needed changing for about a month of that time, but i'm too lazy to do anything about that....

sir, i would like to inform you that you are now my favorite UGer. Not only did you use the word y'all, which is native to my homeland, but you correctly punctuated it using the apostrophe.
