    Anyone knows the difference between the old D'addario Prism and the actual pro Steels?

    Prisms had been my favorite strings for years. ProSteels are nice strings, too, but they have less high-end. They have common "feel", their tension is the same.

    Prisims sounded better but ate your frets more.

    I herd D’addario was going for the old Roto sound string vibe with the pro steels. I like the pro steels but prefer DR low riders.
