    IMO they are great strings. I use them on my son's 4 banger.

    Iv'e tryed them I found the G and D strings to be a little stiff. I liked the Xl 165's.
    45,65,85,105. Recently however iv'e been using 45,65,80,100. in flatwounds. D'Addario CHROMES. Flats are generally stiffer so I go down a gauge to stay in the same ballpark tension wise.
