Could be wrong, but I seem to remember the the D'addario Reso-Phonic set is made up for that high G Dobro tuning, like Mycroft said.

If you want to play just slide, then a 16 on top is fine, but if you're fretting too, that may be a bit much. All down to how it feels on your guitar and your fingers though, it's good to experiment.

One brand of strings that are definitely worth a try on resonator guitars are Newtone round core resonator (MM) sets. They are marketed as having a slightly lower tension than what you'd expect with the string gauges, and I certainly find them comfortable. May have to be ordered direct from the Uk, but they're great, they get my vote.
