    Hate to be short but here goes- lots of people like them and lots of people hate them. I have used Ernie Ball and like them just fine. They only way YOU will know is to buy and use them. Plenty of people will tell you they die in a matter of hours. That was not my experience and they seemed to last as long as most of the major brands of nickel strings. It's not like they cost a lot of money so I say go with them.

    I've just bought 5 (4 string sets), to try on my basses. So far I'm comparing them really close to D'Addario XL1710's. A little bit more tension I think.
