Default Savarez Strings

Have you used any of these Savarez strings:

Savarez 500AJ High Tension
Savarez 500AR Standard Tension
Savarez 510MJ High Tension

Do you like it or not? And why?

I tune far down. Low- CDAdgc, High- CFCfac

Noboru Nakayama Maestro, spruce/maple, 2010 (bone saddle)
"This guitar is very light. It offers great volume and response, crispy and crystal clear trebles, strong and raspy basses, great note clarity and separation and great sustain. All these traits definitely qualify this guitar to be used by flamenco player. It however can be used to play classical pieces as well as tunes in many other styles." - Victor
Savarez 500 AJ HT - in low, even, warm, rich, fretted notes good; increased volume in high, with clear fretted notes.

Yamaha No 120 Nipon Gakki, spruce/maple, 1964-1966 (bone saddle)
Savarez 500 AJ HT - slightly dry, clean fretting, overtones galore in low, out of this world in high.

The Burguet 1A I recently got came with 500ARJ (normal basses, high trebles) and they are a very bright and balanced set of strings that went very well with the new spruce top. Very good volume too. The intonation was also great until about a week/10 days when it started sounding really off around the 9th and 10th frets and I found myself spending a lot of time adjusting the tuning.

I was in a hurry to try the D'addario EJ45LP's I had so I changed the strings since the tuning/intonation was driving me nuts.

I intend to try them again because they sounded great but I want to experiment with some others first.
