Do d'addarios have significantly higher tension than other brands?

    I currently use ernie ball super slinkys on my geddy (45-100). They feel pretty loose. I've read that the d'addario XL's have a stiffer feel. I'm planning on getting the same gauge.

    Nope. Looser than circle Ks at the same guages. Go with CK if tension is what your after

    Chromes are the stiffest strings that I am aware of. Therefore, you may like them better.

    Stiffness and tension are not directly related.

    If this is the case, a bigger gauge should solve the problem?

    It's not a guarantee.
