10 was too hot, 9 was too cold, 9.5 was just right!
I used to use GHS Boomers 9-42 or 10-46 since the mid '80s. I really yearned for an in between! I discovered the 9.5.-44! BUT, I was a bit concerned that the D' Addario's would lack the power of the Boomers. NO problem! The D' Addario's crunch and punch just as well as the Boomers did! And they seem to last a bit longer (esp. the 9.5!). Great stuff! (Cool manufacturing video too!) Incidentally, SWEETWATER constantly has the BEST price in the world on them!
