I should probably elaborate. I buy individual 6th strings to use for strings 7-11 on my 11-string alto guitar. That type of guitar uses a 6th string for all the lower bases, each being longer and longer to provide the extra tension necessary to make successively lower and lower notes. So I really only need 6th strings. I only buy compete sets to use for the regular first six strings of the guitar.
