Pardon my friends he is from India, English is not his first luggage, and his spell-check is broken.
What he meant to say was,
"They make a .140 gauge string but I am not sure if that's going to ???? ?? ?? ????? I am thinking about getting a .182 from Circle K Strings."
To that I say, that .182 makes a great F# string, that is what I used for years. I am currently using a .142 for my F# (this will not work well on most basses, my bass was designed for low tension strings) this gives me a tone somewhere between Fieldy and Claypool (think Korn shaking hands with beef). If you don't want "that tone" I suggest balancing the tension on your F#,B, and E-strings.
To get the most mileage out of your low notes you have to be able to walk down an octave and have it still sound like the same instrument. Circle K does this very well not only in tension but in design (string formula) as well.
I once heard a demo of the Dark Lord bass tuned F#BEA
maybe it had a bad set-up but I did not care for the sound of the F#-string.
Adam Nolly's Dingwall with Circle K Strings on the other hand has a F# that makes me jealous http://youtu.be/lMxbP1V3WBo
