    Paradigm Strings even more loose?

    I got a few packs of 10-46 Paradigms recently, but they buzz a little more and feel a lot more floppy than 10-46 Slinkys when I tune to Eb (what I usually use). Is this normal? I went a little nutty thinking the weather had changed the relief of my neck for a bit, but I'm thinking it's the strings now. Maybe this is a side effect of their strength.. I saw that Andertons/Paul Gilbert vid where he tuned up like 2 notes above normal slinkys before the string snapped. I assume this means they're just a little more floppy in normal tuning as well.

    Kind of unfortunate since they seem like a cool product otherwise.

    Interestingly, I felt like the Paradigms had a little more tension than my Super Slinkys. I ran them for a few months and went back to my standard Super Slinkys. It was more because I've never really had a problem with breakage and didn't feel like they were worth the extra expense than anything else, though.
    My stuff:
    2007 Axis Pacific Blue Burst (9/25/07)
    2016 Axis SS Starry Night PDN (11/23/16)
    2016 Axis SS Semi-Hollow Trans Teal one-off (6/8/16)
    2018 Axis BFR Steel Blue No. 45 (9/18/18)
    2010 JP6 Mystic Dream (6/22/10)
    1989 Fender HM Strat HSS Blackstone
    2016 Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe Caribbean Night
    1995 Washburn N2 Padauk Stain
    2017 Taylor 224ce-K DLX Koa

    Strange! Perhaps we're both right, where the tension on Paradigm Pink vs Super Slinkies is more, but the tension on Paradigm Green vs Slinky Regular is less.
