<
How do they match up against other proprietry brands?>>

I've been using these for several years. Before that I always used D'addario Phosphor Bronze and I could not tell the difference between them and the WebStrings -- except for the price. I would add that when buying many sets at once (to get the lowest price) I found that the last sets I got around to using did develop a bit of tarnish and didn't last quite as long as they did when new. (I never thought of 'freshness' counting for strings.) There's probably a way to store the unused sets to avoid that problem. Or -- go in on an order with another player and share.
I'm over in England right now and the price of guitar strings is mind-blowingly expensive! I'm glad I brought a dozen cheap sets with me.
Cheers.
