I've had these for about two weeks now and are tearing my poor fingers apart and are startin to sound thin. The D and G sound good but the B is crap. Its giving me a strange overtone on my schecter elite 5. I personally don't like these strings, but i'm going to give them another 2 weeks and maybe they will settle in a little more. They are really bright and create a lot of string "talk". I think after I'm done with this set, which may be soon, i'm going to try some Ti power bass. They seem to be getting a good rep.
