I had the guys at Lakland string a set of their flats on the 55-02 that I picked up from the factory and really have come to like the tone and smooth feel. These are the first flats I've used and find them very stiff - I had the medium gauge put on. I've read a lot about different flats recently but am not sure where the Laklands fit. How would the TI flats, DR Sunbeams, d'Addario chrome flats compare in tone and playability? I'm going to likely want a thinner gauge next time around.
