I have been using Aquila strings on my Koa Tenor Flea for the last couple of years. I just picked up a set of Living Water Clear Strings.
The thickness looks similar to the Aquila's. Has anyone tried them on a Flea or a Fluke and if so what is your opinion.

I have Living Waters on my Fluke (a concert though, not a tenor) and I love them!
They liven up the sound and are great for fingerpicking. :)

I have Living Water strings on my concert flea and really like them! I had D'Addario and Aquila strings, but they were just too bright for me. The Living Waters are a little mellower (still plenty vibrant), which I wanted. Others that have heard me practice with each set of strings have commented on liking the Living Waters best. Also, I had to double-knot the G and A string because a single-knot eventually slipped through from the tension.

I visited Magic Fluke yesterday while traveling home from a work trip. I saw the Koa and it looked great! Though, they mentioned it's becoming a little more difficult to source.
