i currently use 9-46 on my fender guitars, recently played a friends wildwood 10 strat which had 11's on it. i liked the increase in tone, and they were easy to bend. however, that might have been due to the bigger frets. my fenders have 9.5 radius and medium jumbo frets, and i have a feeling they won't be as easy to bend on my guitars. i bought a pack of 11's to try on the next string change, i know this would mess up my guitar going from 9-46 to 11's but i can always go back to the original gauge without changing anything right? the thing i don't like about the 9-46 is that the 9's feel really skinny under my fingers, and i prefer to have more string there. i used to use 10-46, but it seemed like they weren't suited for fender guitars. 10-46 on my tele made the guitar really stiff, but when i changed to 9-46, the 9's on the GBE strings made it a lot easier to play. I'm afraid 11's would make the tele impossible to play. i'd like to try 9.5's but i want to switch to using elixer's since i hate changing strings, and elixer doesn't do 9.5 so i'm left with 9-46, 10-46, or 11-49 if i end up liking them.
