I had used the SP 12s prior to buying these and liked them sound wise, but found them a bit too heavy on my D-18. The D'Darrio 10s I normally use were too light for the way the neck is set up and these 11s are the perfect match for the guitar. I had tried the Elixir strings in the past which were ok on the 3rd, 2nd and 1st., but the lower strings, especially the bottom E, never sounded as bright. No such problem with these Martin strings with every note ringing out loud and crystal clear. Finger noise on the strings is perfectly manageable too. I recommend trying these to anyone looking for a long-lasting string in this gauge.

Got these (lights 12-54) for my Taylor GS Mini. I was initially concerned about the gauge being too light/heavy as acoustic string gauge seems to vary from one manufactor to the next but they sound and feel perfect for me once strung on the guitar - loud, rich, balanced and not too bright.
I've previously always used Ernie Ball Earthwood PBs on my acoustics but needed something a little heavier as the neck on the guitar is a shorter scale and these strings had come recommended from various Gs mini owners- I'm not disappointed either, the tone seems enhanced and they deliver ease of playability too, not hard on the fingers at all, the guitar seemed to come to life.
Can't comment on the lifespan at this point sorry, will keep posted.
Would recommend you give these a go if in any doubt.

Very impressed with these strings, they ring like elexir strings but don't have that slippery feel to them so you don't find them slipping from under your fingers when you are bending. At under £8 a set a bargain.

I haven't tried coated strings before until now so can't compare these Martins against other brands. I bought a Martin LX1E that came with these on. I bought a backup set of strings just in case. I have played the guitar regular and still haven't changed the strings it came with after approximately 6 months. The strings still sound pretty good. Standard phosphor bronze martins are usually dead after a month and require changing so I guess the coating really works and is worth paying extra for. I don't think the tone is as crisp and bell like as standard Martin strings, but I'm willing to sacrifice that for the extra playing time. I still wipe down the strings after playing which I'm not sure if you are meant to. I would be interested to know if anyone doesn't clean these strings after playing and how it affects string life.

I kind of discovered these strings by accident after using all the usual suspects (Daddario EXP's, Elixirs etc) These are 80/20's rather than the phospher bronze I'd always used and I have to say I prefer the brightness of these. They are extremely well balanced strings and I now use them on both my electro acoustic guitars (A Martin OMC 16GTE and a Lowden O12) They are 'reasonably' long lasting, much more so than say the standard Daddarios and I play quite a bit.

The service from this seller is truly excellent, I have now bought these on three or four occasions and they have never taken more than 3 working days to be delivered and the price is very good (my local shop can't buy these strings from his wholesaler at these prices) I will continue to use this seller...(wish they did a deal on bulk buying, might suggest it!!)

I bought these as an experiment to see what they were like as I usually use Elixirs. To be honest they have been very good on the guitar they went on. Dont know whether they are on a par for longevity as the guitar they are on does not get used as much as my other one.

Pleased with these. Though I think guitar strings are very subjective and what appeal to one does not always suit another.
They work fine on my Martin, Collings and Northwood acoustic guitars.
They last quite well, but are expensive.
My alternatives are 80/20 bronze custom light, which are nearly as good and much cheaper.

Have been an elixir user almost exclusively for the best part of the decade... But recently found they haven't been as good as previous years... Lost their brilliance and haven't been long lasting at all especially at their higher price.

I've found the Martin Lifespans great immediately and also found them easier to fret + discovered I could do full tone bends no problem on the highest 2 strings on my 000 28,something I found almost impossible with the same gauge strings of elixirs.
As for how long they will last... Too early to tell but I'm very happy with them and will be buying again.
