    Can't tell if you're waiting for a serious answer.

    They are low tension, to the point that slapping feels like cheating. D and G strings are great, but A and E especially lack definition and volume (which is why there's a set with a real gut E now, I presume).

    They sound kind of similar to real guts, but not entirely. They feel very plastic-y to me, not like guts at all.

    I have them on my backup bass right now, and they're really fun to play.
