Tell us more about the setup in terms of string height at the 12th fret.

Is this a lack of callus issue or joint pain?

The medium high strings offer a bit more resistance for slide, so avoid fret bonk.

You can also just tune any strings down a half step, or even a whole step.

Much easier on the fretting hand and wrist.

Good luck and happy picking

I find Elixers are nice on the hands, so long as you dont like bending too much. I use bends/vibrato alot and because Elixers are so slippery I need to grip them really tight, resulting in more hand fatigue and finger abuse. All said and done I find EB Earthwood PB's to be about as playble as anything else I've tried, unfortunately I've come to prefer the sound of the 80/20's, which arent as nice.
