A set of great string
01.03.2017
Ernie Ball's .11 - .48 is definitely one of my favorite guitar string sets. I've always enjoyed having the high E string a bit thicker while the bottom E medium. The purity in the sound of the strings last a long time, so I highly suggest these.

Pros.
1. Long lasting sound purity. Like I said in the beginning the sound lasts a good amount of time. When doing shows and having rehearsals, a single set lasted me about solid 3 months before I started to notice that the sounds purity is wearing down.
2. Comfortable. Definitely comfortable and plays well. As a guy with thick fingers, these played really well and really comfortably.
3. Durable. I used to play in a Glam Metal band with these, so solo's with intensive bends was an everyday thing. I am still surprised that not once any of these strings broke while playing and doing high bends.

Cons.
1. I don't seem to have any, haha.

Overall, definitely a great set of strings. Ernie Ball strings is my personal "Go To" string manufacturer, if I do not found my personal favorites in a guitar store. If you are trying out different types of strings, try these as well.

Strings that I have used for the last 10 years
ModestJ, 10.08.2020
Have used these strings in various applications (from studio recordings to playing live) for maybe the last 10 years now. Simple, nothing too fancy, yet great sounding. Makes my high-gain sound to be even more chunky and sharp (have not found any other strings that would make it to sound the same). Even though they are quite thick (11-48), it is pretty easy to play, even lead parts. The only negative thing could be the durability. You will not have the same amount of freshness after playing a few weeks as you would have with Elixirs (i.e). Anyways, it is considered a good hygiene to change your strings every month or at least 2 (depending on how much you play). All in all, a pretty great pack of guitar strings, especially if you want a bit darker and heavier tone (because of the thickness). Totally wins considering the cost/quality ratio.

Ready to rock and roll!
nidzaliman, 13.03.2018
If you are into rock and roll, punk, metal, blues and similar styles where you need powerful and punchy tone Ernie Ball Power Slinky Electric Strings will do the job.

I have used these strings on various guitars over the years and I can say that Ernie Ball have been on of the most consistent in quality of their products. You literally can't go wrong with a pack of Power Slinky's...

My favorite string gauge is 0.11 but I have used Power Slinky 0.10 strings and I am pleased with them as well.

A lot of my friends and band mates use them as well, and everybody is pleased for the most part. We all know that guitar strings will eventually break at some point, loose their initial bright sound, but I am very pleased at the time it takes to break or muffle Ernie Ball Power Slinky strings.

Ernie Ball Power Slinky's have been my allies in rocking out for years and will remain so in the future!

Perfect
krisvad, 11.09.2020
What is there to say? I have always played 10s but have felt my guitars with Gibson scale length have felt a little floppy. The Power Slinky set has 11s to 48s so the lighter strings get more heavy without the heavy strings getting much heavier. I love the tone of the power slinkies, but it is the feel which is most improved compared to my normal 10-46 sets. For strats - to me - the longer scale lenght means the strings get too tight, but for Gibsons these are perfect to me. I know string gauge is subjective, so I'd argue that if you feel you're slightly overbending 10s but like the feel of the heavier strings - the Power Slinky is the way to go.
