    Thinking about buying Conklin Snakeskins but I can't find any reviews or even anyone who uses them, there a bit on the pricey side at $68 dollars for a 6 string pack

    Are they worth it?

    No specific experience with Conklin Snakeskins but.....I recall some folks saying that these were repackaged Dean Markley SR2000s with purple silk.

    Ah that's funny to hear I've been stuck between buying the two for a while now.
    Guess I'll just be getting the sr2000,'s

    I use a 7 string set on my Conklin and they're good. They do feel like Markleys. On a 6 there are a ton of string options, for a 7 not so much....
