Expensive but excellent.
3 out of 5 found the following review helpful

Pros: The range and depth of tone is the best I have ever had from a string. It is both powerful and responsive. Definitely better than the non-rigid Oliv label strings I have had.

Cons: It is even more expensive than the normal Oliv strings, and I expect that like them, it will only last a year before the tone begins to fade. So it's a pricey habit to get into.
