I know a lot of people advise aggainst these strings for these tunning but they seem to work fine for me. They give good sustain and don't flop all over the place.

I use Light N Heavy for the lower tunnings so I can have a tight bottom and lighter highs to make it easier to bend. A lot of artists use lighter strings for lower tunnings. The Berzerker (13-56 for A standard), Nile (10-52 for Drop A), didn't Carcass use 10-52 for B standard or did they use 12-54? I forget.

Nile uses a .70 gauge for the low A string
