Not very good...
onet 05.06.2019
I've never used coated strings before so I cannot compare these to the more renowned brands such as Elixirs, but one thing's for sure: these strings sound completely different than your ordinary nickel-plated strings.
Quality-wise the strings are fine, none of them snapped during use, they felt quite normal to play and they did stay rust-free for a long time, as you'd expect.
Now about their sound. The very moment I strung up my guitar and hit the first chord, I was quite shocked, the strings sounded like the oldest and most heavily used nickel plated strings that I've played. Imagine a normal set of strings that was played for months, very dull and lacking any clarity, that's the kind of sound I got with these.
Now, some people might enjoy the sound, I however certainly don't.
For the money it was worth the try though, no big loss. If you're really on a budget, I recommend the standard nickel-plated strings from HB, they're dirt cheap and certainly more usable.

Bargain price for strings

I tried these strings with a Les Paul type guitar. Compared to the other strings I've used by other brands, these sounded a little dull, but apart from that they are very durable. As the price is about the lowest I can find, and thats the best part of the set, I still rate these good strings for electric guitar. But personally I will buy more expensive strings in the future - in order to get the desired clear sound.

Packaging looks great...and that's about it

I've bought these and a set of 9's to try out.
Tried nines on my fender telecaster, high e and b snapped in three days of putting them on. I've tried these on a Les Paul, they lasted 4 days. Just a poor quality of the string itself

Great if you run them in
Mr Greggles 12.10.2018
I thought I would try these because they are coated strings for the price of uncoated. I bought 9s first but have since bought 10s as well.
I was a bit disappointed to start with, they are noticeably less bright than uncoated strings - with Elixirs I struggle to hear the difference (with my gear and my old ears). The worst thing was they feel odd, a little rough to the touch when sliding up and down the fretboard. I nearly took them off again.
Due to circumstances (I couldn't be arsed to change them) I persisted and found that, once worn in, they develop a really good feel - as good as Elixirs. I've continued to use them and they are lasting really well. I've never had any problems with the 10s though I did break a 9 but that was my fault.
If you are prepared to spend a little time running them in and don't want the very brightest tone these strings will repay you with a great experience and a long life at an amazing price.
