It' ll come back to papa with 2 more springs and 0.11 ernie ball strings. We went for d' adario first, but they told me that the ernie ball ones are easier to bend and stuff:D So.. Never had EB strings before, im curious:D

Don't just play it. Feel it!

EBs are great in my opinion. Very easy to bend and easy to get addicted to too. I got .09 super slinkeys on my guitar. I must say that I quite like them.

I use Ernie Balls all the time. They seem to be way more durable than any other kind of string i've tried.

I'm very fond of EB strings ! I have been using them for quite some time on my bass..They tend to keep the "new strings tone" for quite a long time (in comparison to other brands I tried)..So great choice mate!

I think I tried quite a lot brand so its safe to make an overview,

D'addario rings the best but corrodes faster than anyting else,
Elixir is the most durable but high priced one,
Ernie ball has a good durablity/sound/price performance but weak grip on new strings,
Most guitar brand strings (fender, ibanez, yamaha, esp(this one comes with an extra E) sucks but some player oriented ones may be better like Zack Wylde Signature Strings
Dunlop strings are good ones, but dunlop KFK series are better

Surely comfort is a subjective matter, but I prefer Dunlop KFK and Ernie Ball for live and D'addario for recording sessions.

Hope I could be of assistance...
