I can't recommend anything though as I've only tried DR, D'addario, Vinci and Ernie's Balls, I had some Ernie's Balls somthing to-054 lasted for 2-3 months, and problaby would even longer if I didn't change them. They start ringing in some weeks though but they sound really good even when they're old. Might be my pickups though that can't pickup any difference though as well.
I also tried to break them on purpose, nearly impossible, I sat for 5-15 minutes and picked as hard as I could, tuned as high as I could be bothered, held the guitar by the strings, and lots more bullshit, because I was going to try DR one last time, which of course broke within the week.

I'm using DRs and they most definately do not break fast. I've probably have had the same strings on my Charvel for probably 6 months. I'm way over due for a string change. I must say i enjoy DR 11s quite much.
