Question Fav string selections

In Hollywood Strings Gold, what are your favorite strings to use to make up a string section? I like the Leg Slur RR LT 3. I’m wondering if anyone uses other combinations to make up in their string sections.

I’m a solo legato man, preferably cello, so I can’t find personal solace in Hollywood Strings. I do like EW cello, though, but it’s not the best.
As for orchestral strings, there’s no library better than HS Diamond for sheer lushness.

My strings look something like this:

Marc Leg/Port (powerful system folder)
Sus 13 (powerful system folder)
Staccato
Staccatissimo
Stacc on Bow
Marcato
Spicc
Pizz
Tremolos
Trills
Repetitions
Playable Runs

I'm on CCX so I have access to the close mics as well - so I have both mic positions loaded up. Its overkill, but I have a slave computer setup and it is a pain to have to add additional patches on the fly.
