Monel strings?

Has anyone tried these Martin "Retro" "monel" strings? I have them on a short-scale 12-fret D-hole guitar (with the 1st and 2nd strings changed to the same as Argie 011s). I enjoy their "rebound" and tone.

    Yes, I use them on my archtops...40s L7 and a 50s Levin. I also used them on a Gibson J200 and I really liked the sound. Overall more mellow than bronze strings. Can't say I considered them on a selmac style guitar because for me, the strings make a large part of the manouche sound.
