Half bad, Half good
At first I really liked these strings. They sounded great, better than most coated strings. However, the coating on the plain strings excessively corroded after just a couple of weeks.

I played my mandolin for about a week every other day or so after restringing with DR set, then took a week off. When I picked it back up again, the plain strings had corroded where the pick makes contact between the end of the fingerboard and the bridge.

This is a deal breaker for me. I like to buy coated strings so I don't have to change strings often. If you do buy these strings, I highly recommend buying additional plain strings to replace them when they corrode. Or, just keep putting a new set on every two weeks...
