I"ve been using Elixers lately as well.
But try and go back to an uncoated string, and youre looking at an adjustment period again.. since youre used to extra "slippage"

Ernie Ball Regular Slinkys (10-46). Used to play D'Addarrio's but I found they broke easily. I tried EB's on a recommendation from a friend & love them.

I've only been playing for a few years now so I'm still experimenting. On my electric, it's D'Addario. I had the super light (.009 to .042) and I now have the regular light (.010 to .046). I just picked up the Super tops/reg bottom (9 to 46) so I'll see how that feels.

On my acoustic, I had on the Martin's bronze medium (.013 to .056) but my guitar is all mahogany and it was *missing* higher ends. I've got on now D'Addario Phosphor Bronze light (.012 to .053) and I might go a little lighter.

I play strings much thicker than you guys. :p

I used D'Addario Nickel rounds for about 20 years. Tried ErnieBalls last year and didn't really like them.

Now I use Stainless or Nickel rounds from here http://www.webstrings.com/. Easily half the price of D'addarios at the store.
