GHS Boomers. 10s on Eb and 9s on E.
Bullet 10's prefer nickel but hard to get at the moment. On some strats I'll try to sneak a 16 in place of the 17. Hardtails I use slinky 10's
Actually not sure, have not replaced what came with it yet, and not sure what these are.
I've been an Ernie Ball fan forever. (It's a dream of mine to have my name on the pack) Right now I've got 10 sets of Super Slinkys (9-42), 3 sets of Hybrid Slinkys (9-46), 2 sets of Regular Slinkys (10-46), 2 sets of Extra Slinkys (8-38), one set of Classic Rock n Roll Regular Slinkys (10-46) and 1 set of Ultra Slinkys (10-48).
I like the Super Slinky 9-42's on Strats, but any will do in a pinch.
9-42 Fender pure nickel here….
I recently did this switch using ernie balls product and really like the lighter strings on my strat. I also added 2 oem Fender springs to make five and like that too! Much easier to tune now without the springs stretching in response to tightening the strings!
Gibson Vintage Reissue
9-42, pure nickel wrap
11's on Strat tuned to Eb, currently.
I like 10s or 9.5 when I play Standard.
About to try 10.5 tuned to Eb because it's what I got left.
Like 10 for shorter scale, but have only a Strat now.
I use Webstrings. They're good.
I use super slinky cobalt 10’s or 9’s if I have them.
Unearthed a set of these in the string box...pre-internet:
I got a set of 10's on mine.
I've been using Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinkys (9-46) for a couple years. I went to them after injuring my hand and struggling with the 10-46 a little.
Though my hand is better now I just really really like them.
I tried the E.B. 9.5-46 and didn't like them at all.
There is a difference and if you've never tried 'em check out Stringjoy.com where you can have a "custom gauges" set made to your liking. I play hard on these Nashville made strings and they last. Still bright after 16 hours of gigs. I have a Strat with a 9.5 1st string...then 11, 16, 26, 38, 48.
Guitar players make these strings and the quality is just the best. The person putting the set together for you actually signs the box the strings come in. Twang !!
Heard about this brand for a while, i think the shipping fees were setting me back a little bit on Canadian land
My Strat still has the original strings, of course! I'm waiting until they go out of tune before I change them.
Those strings help your guitar go down stairs, alone or in pairs.
I tried Super Slinky 10-46. They bend easier than D'Addario 10-46.

I keep a spreadsheet of string changes.
Playing for many yrs. can't anymore. Bummer
Discovered DR 9.5's a few yrs before I had to quit. They sound fat on a strat. Last a good while. It helps if you wipe 'em down after every gig or long practice. They aren't as stretchy as 9's but I always figured my fingers would strengthen. Either they did or the DR's are stretchier than most. I was sold on the 1st set.
I use 10-48 on my Silver Sky
