I was wondering, does anybody else who uses coated strings think they cut the highs too much, thanks, mum maybe I should go back to the uncoated. What do you think? Are medium guage strings really that much heavier than lights?
not too thick,
and not too light,
i think these gauges,
are just about right!

For me, coated strings are only used on guitars that I don't play that often. I like them on acoustics and tolerate them on electrics. Overall I think we are getting close to a good coated string that doesn't diminish tone and responsiveness. Think of the early offerings a few years back they kinda felt like they were dipped in wax and stiff.
Now we just see a little tone change and a little stiff.
