XS Nickel coated electric guitar strings provide the longest life of any D'Addario electric guitar string. Coated with their groundbreaking XS coating, these premium electric strings attain maximum life and a smooth, fast feel without dampening their outstanding tone. Constructed with a NY Steel core, reformulated nickel-plated steel wrap wire, and Fusion Twist technology, XS Nickel strings boast superior strength and tuning stability, plus richer harmonics, greater clarity, and remarkable definition with every sweep, slide, and bend. This 09-46 Super Light Top/Reg Bottom gauge set has more low-end tone than Super Light, while staying flexible for bends.

Features
• Longest life of any D'Addario electric string, plus a smooth, fast feel, with no fraying, peeling, or dampening, thanks to the ultra-thin XS film coating
• Reformulated nickel-plated steel wrap wire provides a bright tone with increased output, bite, and sustain
• Greater break strength and unmatched tuning stability with a NY Steel core and Fusion Twist technology, staying in tune 131% better than standard electric strings
• Made in the USA at D'Addario's New York production facility

I was always a fan of the old EXP strings and was sad to see them go because I never liked the NYXLs they replaced them with. I just put a set of these strings on my Tele and based on the first week and a half, I have to say I like them! They feel smoother than the Elixir Optiweb strings, more like the Nanoweb strings, but with the punchier sound. Are they worth the price? Do I get 8-12 weeks out of them, or do I get 8-12 months out of them like Elixirs; only time will tell.
