Bought a small lot of these from ebay and I put a set on my road worn tele this morning and I have to say that for some reason either my stretching technique has reached a masterful level or these Fender strings do not stretch as much.

They sound great and it intonated easily but everything went so fast from winding to jamming in 30 minutes. That never happens. I usually spend a couple hours retuning until it stops.

"...either my stretching technique has reached a masterful level or these Fender strings do not stretch as much..."

It depends on what is meant by "stretch." The tensile load on typical steel strings at normal pitch is not large enough to cause the metal to yield. What "stretching" strings really does is encourage the strings to quickly settle into their final position at the ball, over the saddle and nut, and, most important, in the wraps around the tuner post.

So I would say it's not the strings, it's your stringing technique.
