I was looking on the at the custom basses on the Conklin website and I was thinking, "I wonder if you ever get scared that those high strings will just hit you in the face one day, for no good reason?" So. Do your high strings break easily, they look teeny, and they are under some serious tension. I've done some popping and slapping on some 6 strings and I was scared that the high C was going to break. I assume that strings higher than that would be in greater danger of some serious breakage, might even send someone to the hospital. I dunno, maybe I'm paranoid. Also, what guages do you use for the strings beyond the C?
