Which Snare Wires?

Can I get some opinions on Blaster wires vs. 42 strand? I'm getting a maple snare and I wanna get the most for my money. I tend to crank the top head very tight, but not so tight that a medium strength hit will send the stick flying back and my face. It's just loose enough to give me control.

Well the first question is the snare bed wide enough to accommodate 42 strand? if not it will buzz and sound like crap. if it will accommodate them you will just have to experiment and see for yourself, but remember more wires more snare sound less wires more drum tone, personalty I would go for the Blasters on a maple drum.
