So I've been using Super Slinkys in my Gibson Explorer for about 4-5 months and I'm going to my local music store today to pick up a set or two of new strings. I'm wondering if I should stick with the Super Slinkys or move to a different Slinky, or brand of strings?

I was thinking about D'Addario XL strings. I'm also using DR Black Beauties in my Jackson right now. Thoughts?
*A list of all my gear*

Varg/J Mascis/GG Allin are all the same person.

There are two types of people in this world: people who like Bolt Thrower, and people who suck.

Stay away from D'Addario, very boring sounding strings.


Check out Dean Markley Blue Steels or Elixirs.

Really? Are you hacking away at them or something?


The nines on my Strat last ages.


The 10s on my Les Paul are like cockroaches.

Hmmm.....I don't really know what I'm trying to do here, guess I'm trying to see what opinions other people have.

I bought a set of D'addarios, EB Reinforced Reg Slinks, and Elixir Nanoweb Lights. Giving the D'addarios a spin first.
