I have a '77 D-35 that I have been using the Martin phosphor-bronze on for some time now. I've bought some others but never found anything else that lasted any longer or sounded any better than the Martins (I haven't tried the Newtones however). I did change a number of years ago from medium to light weights and that seemed to brighten the D-35 a bit (that model is notoriously bass-y and boomy due to the body size). I probably sacrificed a little life by the weight change but the bass lets the treble blend better.
