Try the cryogenic strings from American Made Banjo. They last as long if not longer than Elixirs, they sound just great, and they will make you a custom guage set it you want.

I have them on back order thru Janet Davis..elderly sells them but they are out of stock right now with no answer when they'll be in stock..I may go and get another brand and eventually get some elixirs when they come in..but thank you a bunch for the links...I'll be saving them..

Are these for your open back? If so, ever consider nylon? That's mostly what I use. I like the mellow sound and feel.
