Hey, Jim... Someoe else must help you with the bridge tension or whatever, 'cause that's not my area... Can tell you though, I bought a set of the thickest brand of D'Addario roundwounds three months ago, and after slapping and poping (quite hard) at least one hour every day, plus, a couple of hours of ordinary plucking to that, all strings are still intact. I'm very satisfied with them, I think they are easy plaid and still sounds great. I always use a rag to wipe the strings clean when I've practiced for the day too, that makes them last longer. But you say that they break after just a couple of days?!? That seems very unnormal to me, maybe you should watch over your technique. It could very well be that you slap/pop too hard. And as said, if anyone got any cents to the bridge matter, speak up...
Keep the beat
