    They are very different in that the DR coating is some sort of lacquer, as opposed to the microfine webbing on Elixirs. The lacquer will wear off in spots with playing, but of course doesn't fray. Also, it doesn't impede the harmonics much, which I found the Elixir coating did. For more opinions, search the forum for e.g. "Black Beauties" or "Bootzillas".
