I like the heavier strings on my acoustic, (.13s) but I tend to go light on my electrics, because I bend alot, and with a family history of arthritis, I like to take it easy on my joints. I use .009s on my tele and .010s on my Epi DOT, although I may try .011s with a plain G sometime just to see.
I agree with Mr. Wendler that light strings are best if you let the amp do the work, but some people seem to think that doing so makes you a lesser player. Not so!!! A players choice of notes and expressive abilities are what make his/her worth, not weather or not he/she can push them big strings around!
