Recommend me some strings for my Honey Dipper.

It came with 12-53 gauge bronze strings. I'm finding that the top E is to sloppy for slide as is the low E and A strings.

I want to play a combi style of blues and slide. Michael Messers strings look pretty good with his hybrid 13-56 range, but I can only find them available in nickel on ebay (Strings Direct are out of stock).  The blurb on his strings state they are lower tension, so I was considering perhaps the 16-59 but I suspect even with the lower tension, these might be too 'tight' for finger-style work.

Are any of you chaps resonator players and if so, can you recommend me a suitable set of strings?
