they over charge you for a mericore string, i still suggest you try it though, like they say different strokes for different folks

Live Wire (not to be confused with Live Wire XP) is a very soft multi with good playability, comfort & power. Durability and tension maintenance are average . Price has recently dropped to $7.95 on many sites making it a better value. A good alternative string is Dunlop Max Comfort for $6.95. In the same catagory is Wilson Sensation. All are worth a try if you are not a big string breaker.

Regular Live Wire is an excellent deal for 8 bucks. At that price, I would not consider the more expensive versions of LW. Instead, I would recommend LaserFibre Supernatural Pro Stock or XRC Phenom. I haven't tried Supreme, but I hope to one of these days. NRG2 is pretty good, too, powerful, elastic, but loses tension faster than LF.
