I have had the Mari’s on for a few days and really like them. They are very smooth and feel great on the fingers. They have a really meaty tone. So far intonation is good. Wish I tried these sooner.

Yes, you should try Mari 100p, or 100pL if you like lighter tension (not that I feel much difference between the two). I can't think of a La Bella I'd play in preference. Their best nylon might be the 10PH series, but they feel
higher in tension.
Greetings, just put some 10PH trebles on a guitar, I only have one guitar so by the time I change 'em to compare them to something that
was on 3 or 4 sets ago, not a very accurate comparison but from what I remember the 10PHs feel & sound similar to what I remember
Augustine Classics being like...despite whatever differences their published diameters and tensions are. Am I crazy?

No, not crazy.

I would have thought 10PH would sound closer to Imperials than Classics, but that’s only from my memory bank, which is ageing!

Heh, yeah I think it's the feel maybe more so...the Imperials are a little more manly man, might be throwing my sense of tone off.
