    I use GHS Bass boomers. I no longer play with a pick, but I used to pretty heavily, only broke a string once. I'm a very heavy plucker and these strings have always held up. There ya go.

    I tried dozzens of strings & broke more EB Slinkys than any other. I use DR's now.

    ...you could also just use a heavier gauge.
