These strings are, in fact, the cat's meow. They have the smooth feel of rollerwound strings (GHS) and the snap crackle and pop of pure nickel (E Ball) and they seem never to get old as long as you don't scrap on the coating.
Note this does not apply to the Nanoweb strings which are but a poor imitation and not worth the money.

I have played a lot of coated and non-coated strings and I must say that these babies last the longest and do not lose their clarity after 6 months of playing. I have really acidic hands when I sweat after playing so I would change strings ever 3 weeks or so at home and almost every night on tour. These strings really hit the spot and save me a lot of time and money! These are my strings of choice by far! I would recommend these strings to anyone for any playing styles without a doubt! :)

Elixir Polyweb - electric
June 9, 2014
I have tried a lot of different brands in the endless search for good tone. I have been a dedicated fan of pure nickel strings since I tried Snake Oil Brand a few years ago. I've tried all of the different pure nickel strings from GHS to Curt Mangan.
I never even considered 'coated' strings because I am such a tone snob, but since the search for great tone is endless I figured I'd give Elixir a try ( on the advice of Patrick Cummings from Brian Moore Guitars). Well, I'm really glad I did because these strings are warm, punchy, easy to bend and stay in tune incredibly well right from the very moment you put them on. All those things I love about them still hold true over a month later, these strings still sound and feel brand new. I now have Elixirs on almost all of my guitars (the Poly-web, NOT Nano-web). Give them a try, you won't regret it!

Elixir Electric PolyWeb Guitar strings .10-.46
October 18, 2010
I have just started using these strings and they are great.
I used D'Addarios & Dunlops before these and the don't compare, although I never used the XLP D'Adarrios.
I would normally break an E or B string every couple of weeks, which was good because the strings were so dirty and rusty and dead sounding that I had to change them any way.
I love the sound of a new set of strings and these Elixirs keep that sound a lot longer and STAY CLEAN.
AWESOME Strings.

Elixer Electric Guitar Strings - Polyweb

The only strings I use on my electric jazz guitars. They maintain a smooth even tone and hold up exceptionally well. I prefer the tone of the original polyweb to the new brighter nanoweb coating.

These are the only strings that I use on my electrics. I love the feel of the strings and they hold up well to lots of bending. They keep an even tone over their long life.

"Whether chicken-pickin', slingin' the blues, or rockin' the house, Elixir Strings Electric Guitar Strings deliver!

"Every time you play your guitar, tiny bits of you are left to invade the windings to contaminate your strings and kill your tone. Elixir Strings are the only strings that keep dirt out of the windings by coating the entire string. Our original POLYWEB Coating provides a warm tone that players tell us lasts longer than any other string, uncoated or coated. This means you buy fewer sets of strings, change them less often and trust your guitar is ready to go whenever you are.
