    Hey
    Does anybody know the differences between elixir NANOWEB strings and POLYWEB strings?
    Which type is better for a electric fretted bass, using the thumb technique.
    Thanks

    nano has a thin coating, poly has a thick coating.

    me i prefer poly cause its smooth and feels great under my fingers.

    nano feels more like regular un coated strings.

    I read somewhere they are actually Daddario nickel.
