I have been unhappy with what seems to be a very high tension on my Saga DG-250M so I thought I would try another kind of strings. I got some of the Galli G-SL10 (Silk & Steel, light) It made some what of a difference and the tension feels better. Not great but better and the sound is okay. Still very snappy and a bit harsh but better then with other strings I have used. So if there are any others out there that have had the same problem this might be a way to help out.
