Just my two cents here.
Carnivore 27.09.2020
Everything had been said already here, so there is only one thing that I feel like pointing out: hybrid sets could be a lifesaver. Ernie Ball or otherwise.

Let?s be honest here: As rule of thumb, you select your strings based on two general parameters: how they feel (your hand?s size, your fingers strength, your playing style and the like) and that their sound and durability are reasonably ok (let?s be honest again, not everybody could hear the slight difference in sound from brand to brand in sets of same gauge and materials). Ernie Ball fits the bill, no question.

BUT there is something else to consider. Hybrid strings could literally save certain certain guitars. Pay close attention to your guitar. If it sounds skinny, weak or loose in the bass response, hybrids could fix that at little cost and without a huge compromise in terms of action and playability.

For many of you, the afore mentioned is probably redundant and evident, but for novices might find this useful, so it did worth my while to mention this still.

Been using Ernie Ball 8-38's, 9-42's, 10-46's for a very long time and I have found that each has their strengths. [10-46} : 46-36-26 strings are great for driving thick rhythm. {9-42} : 11-16 strings are great for solid melody and rhythm. {8-38 : 8-11 strings are great for bending pedal steel licks to radical blues-rock bends. The best the three worlds = 8-11-16-26-36-46. From an economical stand point, the Hybrid Slinky with an .008 is a pretty affordable and fun experience. I've spent a lot of money on strings over the years and during my developmental and experimental phases I've come to enjoy this combination. The 10-46 forced me to be a better rhythm player with blue-jazz origins. The 9-42 turned me on to rock. The 8-38 taught me to create wicked country bends with speed. I feel now after 30 yrs or so of playing I've decided to take what I like from each set and make it my own. I'll call it, "Three Of A Kind"

Ernie Ball Hybrid

Ernie Ball strings always were my favorite ones for my electric guitars.
I experimented with various gauges and came across these last year, now I use them on my Strat. I use this set for practicing, small gigs.

Never had a string break.
Great sound, and it is so great that you still get the great slinky bending , but with a slightly heavier and clear bottom end. Ernie Ball strings keep their tone, fantastic sound.

Blues, Rock, Heavy Metal. Drop D, E Flat - that what I use these strings for.

To sum up:

Pros -
Pretty long-lasting
Strong
Consistent
Good Tone
Affordable
Reliable

Cons -
Still didn't found any

Give Ernie Ball 2222 a try and you'll be impressed! :)

An obvious favorite!
Simen Solberg 27.09.2021
These strings are easy to maintain, they last a long time on the sound of new strings and despite about five to eight hours of playing a day, they last for at least 3 weeks. The 2222 set gives a fat and crunchy sound, at the same time as it is easy and comfortable to bend. I recommend these strings, not only because of the price, but also the high quality. I use these strings on all of my guitars, two telecasters, a b-bender and a stratocaster because i really trust these strings, you can play them for hours and the guitar's still in tune. These strings on an acoustic guitar gives a bright and fantastic sound and the same opportunities as with an electric guitar when it comes to how to play it.
