I use these Ernie Ball strings for my Fender Stratocaster. I use the .10 gage (or the bright neon yellow package). I have used these strings for years. I used to use Fender strings, but I like these a whole lot better. I use these strings for both liver performances and recording in my basement.

I bought these from Guitar Center for about $6.

I love the feel and tone of these strings. They have a very smooth feel and are very easy to slide around on. They also sound great and hold their tune well. Obviously another plus is that they only cost about $6 per pack.

I don't really have any big complaints with this product. They are great strings.

I have only broken a few of these strings, but it was always after tons of use. They never snap right away and hold up very well. Also, I have never received a mangled or disfigured string from them. All the strings are always exactly the way they should be.

Overall, I have always been satisfied with using Ernie Balls. They are cheap strings that sound and feel anything but cheap. I will continue using Ernie Balls long into the future, and it will take a pretty great string to convince me otherwise.
