Been buying these since 1978... Still the best roundwound strings. Why change when they sound so good?

I'd never used Rotosounds before but decided to buy them through Artist Guitars because of the great price. They arrived very quickly and give me the crunchy, high mid sounds I've been after (think Chris Squire, Geddy Lee).
