I have posted my String Gauge Chart for 22.5" Scale Length Lap Steel Guitars that sounds best IMHO.

The biggest challenge was finding the right gauge for best sustain on the Bottom end after the 12th fret but still remaining clear when playing below the 12th fret and avoiding the "MUD" sound.

I really like the Options finally as it offers very crisp pedal sounds due to string tension while offering a smooth mellow sound with a simple roll of the Tone Knob.
