What is your opinion of this product?
I've been experimenting wiht different coated strings since gettng my Taylor 310ce last year.
Tried Elixers a couple of times and not impressed - find the tone (right out of the package) to be dull. Martin Lifespans were much brighter but I had constant breakage issues - may have been old stock I picked up on sale. SO I thought I'd give EXPs a shot. Much brighter than the Elixers to start out with, but took a little more play to 'break them in' - where they would hold their tuning. But it only took me a little while to realize the 'coating' is minimal on these: string squeek is back, which I have never had with the Martins or Elixers (or Cleartones I used before). Elimination of string squeek is hte principle reason I use coated strings, so these do not pass the test.
