I've been using these strings for a few weeks. They are the first flatwound strings I try so I cannot really compare them to others... But their quality somehow refrains me from trying out other brands...
They give a jazzy or bluesy sound to my Lg Hmb Godin depending on the pickup and amp settings (Vox AD30VT). They are very comfortable to play with and hardly make any noise when I slide! They are "smooth" enough to easily play 1-tone bends on the 4th fret (if your fingers can take it!). I'm actually considering trying out their big sisters (gauge 12/52)...
Right now I cannot say anything about durability...
I give them 10/10! I have no reason to award them a lower mark at the moment...
