These strings are pretty cool. They have what's called a PolyWeb coating, which is supposed to make the strings last a lot longer. Mine did, but not long enough to warrant paying the ridiculous price they want to charge for them. They do sound really good, though. Buy them if you're a pro or a millionaire, if not, hell, give 'em a try anyway.

I like the Elixirs for many diferent reasons, easy on the fingers , less string "noise", extended life, easy to maintain. The only seeming drawback is the price but when the durability of the strings is taken into account compared to other quality strings they are cheap in the long run. For occasional players , a set of these may last a lifetime......
