D'Addario banjo strings sets are 100% reliable. However, I have had recurring problems with loop ends breaking while fitting some of the Eagle Music-branded single strings I purchase. Gently putting the slightest bend in the loop to hold them on the tailpiece nub, normal practice when fitting, causes the loop to break in roughly 20% of Eagle Music single strings.
