A bit short (if you use a huge scale length) but otherwise quite good!
great strings, but they were sadly too short for me. I play an Agile Septor 830 with the reverse headstock, so my low F# string needs to be really long, sadly these were just about an inch too short! I strung my top 6 with them and used the older bottom strings. They were great for that though! Reasonably balanced tension across the fretboard and a round tone. MILES BETTER THAN EARNIE BALL. EB have horrific tension across the fretboard and corrode easily. I'd take these any day of the week if I used a normal 8 string. The tone of these is Great for rock, but possibly not for Djent. That said, you can Djent them, you just have to work the EQ settings out properly and live with a little less attack than you would otherwise have from a Hex core set of strings. Personally, I'm going to wait and hope that Elixr or Cleartone bring out an 8 string set in sensible gauges. However I would use these if I played a shorter 8 string, like Schecter or Ibanez.
They sound great, and last almost as long as D'addarios. I have a slight issue with the bottom string, as it's not tapered off enough for me to get it through the machine head - thus, I have to unravel the wrap by hand when I use these. Bit of a hassle, but they're worth it for the price.
