    I think Flexocor Dlx is a great arco string and also a good hybrid choice. But on my 110cm scale bass they are feeling too stiff for jazz pizz. I asked Pirastro if they have any plans making a weich version. This is what they answered:

    "Thank you for your email and your interest in our double bass Flexocor Deluxe strings in a "weich" version.

    Could you please give us a round figure of how many bass players would prefer such a string?

    We are looking forward to receiving your reply."

    Kind regards,

    So what do you folks think? Am I the only one who is interested :) ?

    I don't know about a smaller gauge, the regulars feel thinner than spiros or Evahs.

    It's more about the tightness. Would be nice if they had more elasticity, a little more give.

    And I agree not thinner in gauge, just lighter in feel. Maybe it'll get a new brand name.

    Flexocor Premium
