I bounce around depending on the Tele. Some have Stringjoy Broadways(pure nickels round core) others Daddario XL. Sometimes GHS Boomers. Even flats occasionally. I have the half round Daddarios on one pine Tele and they are awesome.
I bought a new Telecaster Professional II - roasted pine body month+ ago. Maple finger board. I guess it had Fender bullets on it? I recently put D'addarios pure nickel 9-41 set on it. Not sure of the differences - besides it's slightly lighter 9-41 set. (The lighter weight of the roasted pine Tele itself - is much appreciated)
I wonder if it would be worth trying the half round Daddarios? They do cost more. Or - dare I say - flat wounds. (I have D'addario flat wound chromes on my short scale bass - the smooth feel of them is great.)
