I've had just the opposite experience with them. I find that for a day or two the highs are a little harsh, but then after they are broken in they are good. They seem to stay bright longer than other brands like GHS Boomers, too. Since I don't like to change strings any more than necessary, they are the strings I use. I guess I don't like my strings quit as bright as you do, but these compare favorably with Boomers as far as brightness, but stay bright longer. I've never in 25 years broken a string, and I've never had Blue Steel strings go rubbery after one week. I play a variety of styles, with a pick, with my fingers, and slap, and have never had a problem. I understand that some people have more acid or something in their sweat, so their strings don't last as long. Maybe that is what happened to you.
