I don't like changing my strings often because it's a hassle; and with Elixirs, I don't need to! They can last up to a third of a year for me under regular play which is great because I play daily and man can these things take a bashing! Also, I like how smooth and silky the strings feel under my fingers; it makes for quicker, more eloquent playing, I find.
