GUEST, 85/15 Guitar Strings (4) 85/15 Guitar Strings 23 Jan 00

I decided some time ago that I perfer 80/20 Bronze strings to Phospher Bronze for my guitar. I was in a small town recently and there was a little music shop up an alley with a strange assortment of strings. One of them is a line of strings (I think D'Adarrio) that claim to be 85/15 Bronze. They have the stars and stripes on the package. Does anyone know what the advantages of more copper and less tin (or is it the reverse?). Has anyone tried this mixture?

I would be interested in comments and experiences.

BTW the guy in the store said he got them at an auction and he is selling them at a good price, so I am tempted to try them anyway.
