    I wouldn't expect ANY strings to improve your speed, but lighter guaged strings tend to take a lighter touch, which is sometimes more conducive to playing faster lines with more ease.

    High F strings are available, but not in stock at most corner music stores. Try any reputable online dealer. I can usually find those things at www.juststrings.com

    I use La Bella Slappers on my Jerzy Drozd. I'm not gonna make any claim that I'm faster with them, but I will say the fingers on my right hand don't feel like they're fighting with the strings as much as they do on other brands.

    I don't know why...it could be any number of reasons, but they feel so damned good!:D
