I bought a set of these strings to try tame the tuning on my Ibanez RG 2550z GK (late 2009 model). It has the typical Ibanez RG appointments. Double locking whammy with the Z system, this has a thumb adjuster on the back instead of needing a screwdriver to adjust a clay like in a standard Floyd Rose or a Fender style whammy.
After looking around at different strings I thought these looked impressive. Promotional material showed the strings preforming well during "exterme" playing, whammy bar dives, big bends and so on.
Overall the strings are good. They are a standard 10 - 52. I found my Ibanez stayed in tune a little better compared to other strings I had tried. One issue I did have was that the strings do not feel as "slick" under my fingers. This is a personal thing, some people, me included, prefer super slick feeling strings.
These strings are fairly expensive, you could buy 2 sets of a competitors strings for the same money. It all comes down to what your budget is and ow often you need to change them. Are they worth the money? My answer is possibly, you have to try for yourself. I've never seen one break, which is impressive.
I have fallen in love with these strings. What made fall in love with them was that it is highly durable, doesn't get corroded or rusted quickly with my highly corrosive sweaty hands, and the sound is very clear!
I've been using Eric Johnson Nickel Rockers for a while as It has a great warm tone but the drawback for me was that it was easily corroded as I had corrosive sweat (If you don't then you should check them out).
As I have already said, these strings are highly durable. I practice a lot everyday and normal strings would have to be replaced every 2 weeks but these strings last me a good whole month without much tone loss. I bend strings a lot as well and these are still energetic.
The sound of these strings are very clear and lasts a long time. Unlike coated strings, these strings don't make any loss of tone which is great! So basically it's like a coated string without tone loss!
The best thing about these strings for me were again, the fact that it didn't corrode much with my sweaty hands and that it really gives life to my guitar as it boosts the volume (I think due to stronger magnetism) and has better sustain and resonance than other strings I have used before.
The price is a bit more expensive than regular strings but in the long run it is very worth it. Try them out yourself! I highly recommend it.
