    This will be the last time i post about this.
    Anyone use these strings?
    I've searched the site,and all i find are my posts,and threads on the blue steels.
    And i already have a set on order.
    I guess i just want to know what to expect.And if possible,how do they compare to XL's?
    Anyone?

    They are comparable to the XL's with a somewhat brighter sound. I like 'em. They sound especially good on a modern P or Gibson T Bird. They have blue silks (if that matters to you) and I bought like 10 sets when they were on sale a while back at AMS. Day in, day out, I prefer XL's, however, due to what I perceive as a more consistent top-to-bottom tonal range. But that may just be my obsessive ears. YMMV.
