Threw on a set of XT strings on my Strat a few days ago to replace the good ole Ernie Balls. Both 10-52. So far the XT’s are REALLY thin and brittle. Do these things warm over time? They have a few hours of play after a lot of initial stretching. Kinda missing my bargain bin strings. XT’s def have some chime. Will give em that. Maybe a great string for overwound pups. Fat 50’s trying to spit them out so far.
