Post subject:  95403 Strings - 1993 (10-42) vs 2018 (10-46)

In my Rickenbacker guitar Rev A manual it states that the string set 95403 are
"Compressed Round Wound 10-13-17-26-34-42"

My 1993 Rickenbacker 330 came with these strings on since I measured them with a digital caliper and they correlate well.


Looking at the current 95403 sets for sale, these now seem to be
"Nickel Round Wound 10p-13p-17p-26w-36w-46w" (http://www.rickenbacker.com/images/boutique/95403.jpg)

Referring to the Rev A manual again, that description corresponds to set 95104.

So, some questions for the knowledgeable people here:
1. When and why did the 95403 set change into the 95104 set?
2. Why didn't they just drop the 95403 set and only sell the 95104 set?
2. If anyone's tried both versions, how do they compare?
3. If anyone's tried RickySounds' "Compressed Round Wound 10-13-17-26-34-42" set, how do they compare to the Rickenbacker sets?

Cheers
