    Anybody here use flats on a six string? Seems like nobody makes a six string flat set with low tension...

    Currently using XLR and Infelds, depending on the bass

    You can “build” a set of Chrome with a .030 from a guitar set, they fit on my 35'' 6 string. Infelds also as a 6 string set with low tension.

    I've got TI Jazz Flats on my fretless 6 and I love the sound. Pricey, but worth it, IMO, and they last forever.
