I've used these strings for about 8 years now and they've always been my favorite. I've gone through Ernie Ball, DR, GHS, Dunlop, Elixir and these have always lasted the longest and sounded the best. They stay bright and sound new for weeks if not months. They have a rougher feel than most which I happen to like, I like to be able to really feel the strings under my fingers. Recently I moved to Florida so I've been getting problems with them rusting within a week or so. Since then I have switched to coated strings, I tried Elixir but ultimately sided with Daddario again.
Strings are all a personal preference so not much use in recommending them, but I'll just say I've stuck with them for a reason.
