Great concept, awful tone
I bought a few sets of these after reading about it's concept on the internet, I brought it to my luthier, along with a set of new pickups for my MIJ strat. The pickup itself Is considered 'boutique' and I never read a single negative comment about it.
I was disappointed with the initial result, the tone is just wrong, low end is too boomy and muddy, high string is too harsh. I almost put the pickups for sale after 2 weeks playing.
Until finally I change the string with d'addario of the same size (11-49). Wow, The difference is almost like changing pickups, suddenly he frequency fell into the right place, and the tone is amazing, bright, airy, and low end is deep but not muddy.
I don't understand how a set of string can affect the tone to such extent. But I currently have my other fender bullet strings for sale, I won't bother using it on my guitar ever again.

1. Bullet string end looks kinda cool sitting in the trem block.
|Didn't like ||
1. Bad tone. Muddy low strings, shrill high strings, less sustain.
2. It's really high tension, compared to d'addario/ernie ball.
3. They are slightly more expensive than d'adadrio or ernie ball.
Stay away from these strings, folks!
