    I love and appreciate them both.I like the idea that at any time i choose off goes one type on goes the other.Right now my Jazz has Flats my Stingray has rounds (i dare not post brands lol...)I love and respect that old school sound the flats offer me and just say yeah baby to that growly sound the rounds offer me win win man... Maybe next i will swap hemt around the other way...

    Having multiple basses makes it easier to use both. I have a 5 string Jazz and thunderbird with rounds and a precision and eb-3 with flats. I take one of each to my 60s 70s gigs.

    There is no VS, use whatever you prefer.

    In my experience, flats = bad, rounds = OK.

    It's possible I need more experience.
