fender and labella flats tension
i currently use fender 9050L and i'd like to try out labellas perchance. now i find the fenders quit sloppy so id like some heavier strings.
how do labella 760FL compare to the fenders tension wise? or should i go with the FS for an increase in tension and size compared to the fender 9050L?

I have P Basses with both of those strings and a third with Roto flats. The Fenders and LaBellas are roughly the same tension as far as I can tell with a slight edge to the LaBellas as being a little stiffer. The Rotos are in a different league altogether. A lot stiffer but work great for the bass that they're on. They all sound different too. In order of brightness Rotos, Fender, Labella. Hope this helps.

Forgot to mention that all three sets are .45-.105

It's not a lot but my LaBellas feel stiffer than the Fenders.

Yeah, LaBella FL are quite, but not overly, stiff - as mentioned above they are quite dark/deep sounding in my opinion and that seems to increase a little over time. Great if that's the sound you're looking for :-)

I've got the LaBella FLs on my P and the Fenders on my Jazz. I used to have the LaBellas on the Jazz but found them a bit too stiff for my taste at the bridge, where I spend a lot of my time on the Jazz. On the Precision, they're perfect.
