I bought my player strat mid-summer, and recently got the free setup the store offers done, which replaced the out-of-box strings with some Ernie ball 9’s. It could be my imagination but the Ernie balls felt much more… well…. Slinky…perhaps more plastics (even though they’re not plastic obviously). All the reviews of strings and brands that I’ve read have talked about their effect on tone, their durability, etc, but not much on the tactile feel of the strings. Is that a thing? Do people pick strings based on how they feel on your fingertips? Again this is all assuming we’re comparing the same gauge. If so, would love to hear people’s opinions on how different brands of strings feel.
