Yep, re-strung today with DR "Rare" PB's. Much better; definetely less tension resulting in a much nicer feel plus, a much more warm and rounded sound than the Everly's.
Having wanted to move away from coated, I think I've found my
string, and I hope this little experiment may help others!
P.S. thanks Jim for the bits you sent me and for your continued help and advice.
