THEY JUST DON’T BREAK! I put these strings on my esp and even when I bent the strings and pulled the floyd it just wouldn’t break. Very expensive though

So these strings do sound/feel/play nice (not sure if its $10 nicer than regular strings) but the warranty bit is a waste of time. Do not buy these if your intention is to use the warranty. They ask you to print forms, mail in the strings + original packaging + original receipt, then you have to wait while they evaluate your claim and send you new strings Just buy regular Ernie Balls. Don't waste your time with trying to get them to honour the warranty

At $20 they are on the expensive side of strings, with that being said...they do sound exceptional good (to the trained ear) seeing as they last 2-4x longer than your regular slink's I'd say the value is decent. especially for Floating tremolo guitars. on a side note, they are CRAZY smooth on the 3 thinner strings, not quite as crazy as the Conspiracy theory that HAARP has an earthquake pointed at California...but still exceptionally crazy smooth. almost coated feeling.

They feel and sound like plain old slinkies. Yes they are hard to break but if you are constantly snapping strings it is probably your technique or your guitar that is the issue not the strings.
