Hey, I used to also own a Cordoba Orchestra CE... Loved the sound, but just couldn't bond with the narrower width nut on it. My left hand felt cramped at time when trying to play some stretches. I've had my Cordoba GK Pro for almost 4 years and still love it.
The high tension Savarez Alliance are my favorites right now. The Oasis GPX normal tension trebles are also very nice. I switch between them depending on my mood.
There hasn't seemed to be much difference in longevity between Savarez and Oasis trebles for me.
I've tried the Oasis GPX high tension trebles and my left hand wasn't happy with the feel. While the diameter isn't very different between Savarez and Oasis, my hunch is that they're much harder than the Alliances.
A while ago, I tried the high tension Cantiga Basses and just wasn't happy with the sound on the GK Pro. It seemed that they made sound much more "bassier" than with normal tensions.
Lot's of folk seem to like high tension strings on their Cordoba's.

"Savarez Cantiga Normal tension basses with high tension Alliance strings seem to be my favorite right now."
I play a Cordoba Orchestra CE and have used the same set up you mentioned and found them to have excellent tone and feel too. Right now I have the Cantiga Normal tension basses paired with Oasis GPX high tension trebles. I like them as well or better than the high tension Alliance. Still trying to see if either seems to be the more durable string.
Noticed that you play a GK Pro. Seems that the Cordoba crossover types do well with high tension carbons. I wasn't really satisfied with the output of nylons on this guitar.
