    Hey Bass Folk-
    quick question -
    are the Thomastik super flexibles LOWER in tension than the Orchestra guage thomastik Spirocores ??
    I hate the weich G and threw on an orchestra on my new Juzek but the tension is a wee bit heavey and feeling tight - is the super flexible my answer??

    The Superflexibles are about the same tension as the Weichs.
