    Damn, Pat uses 10-46's in C? That's very thin for 2 steps down.

    i use .9s and tune to drop D down half step...light strings are the way to go man, they feel so much better than thicker strings

    I don't understand how you all can play with such thick strings!!!! I have one guitar with a floyd that is tuned to standard qith 10-46s and one fixed bridge with 11-52' that is usually C standard or D standard.

    It's all just personal preference. In Flames uses 13-60's in C tuning and Stevie Ray Vaughn used 13-56's in Eb.
