For a few decades I used .010-.046" strings on my electric guitars. I decided to go to something heavier and tried a few different gauges. Then I saw these .011-.054" DR strings and got a set. They are now on 8 of my guitars. They're intended for drop tuning, but I use them with standard tuning. It's a little harder to bend (just a little) but that's a small price to play for the tone! There's also lots of bottom end when you get down to the 5th and 6th string.
