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.

Solid feel and sound

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.

Very good strings, the low .80 makes a huge difference compared to the usual .74's you get in other packs. I use them on a 26.5" 7 string in drop E and it sounds and plays perfectly with great tension. Only issue is that the string is only tapered for about an inch at the top so my tuner needed drilling to accommodate the thickness, an easy job though if you have a drill.

Good sound... But,

These strings feel pretty much like any regular set from the E to the B string. Now, when you get to the F#, that string feels like it came from another set of heavier strings. I don't know how they go from 56 to 80. It would've been better if they spaced the gauges more evenly. Like making the B string something in the high 60s or 64s.
