Good strings for low-end bass?

    I have a Squire P that needs some new strings. I still have the Fender stock strings on them and they are about 1 1/2 years old.

    I would like some *flatwounds* for a warmer feeling but I like to practice hard rock. Is there a happy medium. Price is really not an issue.

    *edit: whoopse. roundwounds arn't too warm...

    What about brand? I hear EB Slinky breaks too easy. I was looking at Rotosound but I can't find descriptions of the strings to see which would best suit me.
