Clawhammer Strings

Time for drastic action -- I haven't changed my strings since Clinton was in office. Can anyone recommend banjo strings that work well for clawhammer style? I play a Deering 'Little Wonder' and need strings that snap and pop and project, so I can stop beating the shit out of my hands when I jam with others.

Earthwood Frailing Strings were quite good. (I think they are a sub-set of the Ernie Ball company).
