    Nope, I've got some and the tension is too high, plus I don't like the sound. Thanks, though.

    I think it's pretty much agreed around here that Thomastik-Infeld jazz flats have the most sustain of any flats. The lowest tension too.

    Yup. Got them on one of my basses and I really like them. Played D'addario and Labella flats before too for a comparisson.

    I get good sustain out of mine.
