Ok thanks everyone, I think Im going to stick to the Titanium (Ernie Ball Titanium RPS Reinforced Coated Electric Guitar Strings) strings since Cobalt's feel different. Titaniums feel exactly like normal EB slinky strings yet last longer, which is penultimately what I want. Call it nostalgia, I dont want strings feeling different.I tried them and thought they were fine. I really couldn't tell any difference in tone, but they feel different. They feel very smooth against your fingers which may create the sensation that you can play faster or bend easier. Honestly, I didn't think there was much difference between the cobalts and the regular EBs other than texture of the string itself. I went back to the regular EB because I couldn't justify the extra cost.
The problem with EB is that whenever they release a new product they tout it as some "revolutionary" discovery/invention that is going to change your world/your life will never be the same again...or some BS like that. They did the same thing with the game changer guitar. Dude, it's just guitar strings. Ok. Cobalts are fine, but I can't help but to feel disappointed in them after so much hype.
