Webstrings, .010 - .056. 4 springs on the trem.

I would love to go .011 - .060ish

I use .011's on the 6 string guitars.

On my Universe UV7BK: D'Addario XL130 (.008 - .03 with a D'Addario or Dean Markley .048 for the low B.

On my RG7-620GN: D'Addario XL130+ (.0085 - .039) with a D'Addario or Dean Markley .048 for the low B.

(On my 6-strings I use D'Addario XL120 (.009 - .042).)

Light, I know, and a fair variance. But it's intended to make them all feel as close to completely equal in string tension as possible.
I manage to get a decent sound out of them, it seems - I have a light touch, I guess.
I currently have an MP3 available in the Multimedia: Upload Pictures and Sounds section. It was recorded using my RG7 straight into my POD 2.3, and straight into a recorder, in case someone wants to hear these oddball strings for themselves.

Used to use Earnie Ball .009 - .052 but now switched to Dean Markley .009 - .054. The low B now feels better.

On my Universe, I use a set of Dean Markley Lite .009-.042 plus a D'Angelico .054 string for the low B.

On my RG7 - which is equipped with a back stop device - it's a set of GHS Boomers .009-.046 plus a D'Angelico .056.

I use ernie ball 10's with a 56 low B, but i might start using a 72 ofr my low B, my guitar teacher uses that for his 7 string and it sounds soo much better.
