I like .095s
Lighter strings do break easily if you're not careful w/ them. I never had that issue cause I keep the bridge & nut lubricated w/ pencil graphite.Actually, does anyone use .008s anymore? I remember them being popular for a while when I was getting started playing. I tried them too, way back when in the 70s for a while...but ultimately decided they broke too frequently and I liked the sound better with the "heavier" strings.
