Take note of the Knobloch CXs and the Rubinos as to how well/poorly they progress as you fret towards the body. Do they lose their energy over the body? Do the trebles maintain 'juice' all the way to the end of the fretboard or begin to sound thin? I expect the Rubinos will maintain their energy to the end. There are #3 strings that are unacceptably dull/tubby, and others that have enough clarity for me to judge them as being 'smoky', which is ok, if there is an acceptably smooth progression across the strings.
