I've used Rotosounds on my acoustics and electrics for as long as I can remember. I can't imagine any other brand being better for me because they sound good, they're not as expensive as some and I've never snapped one. True! Plus there are often discounted packs of three online or free straps. I've got a packet of Newtones .013s for my resonator that I haven't tried yet because I'm still using Roto .011s on it and they refuse to wear out.
