    I use Roto RS66N nickel swing bass strings and like them alot. I think the ones you got are pretty much the same string without the silk ends. I play in a classic/80's rock band have them on my Jazz bass going through a GK rig. I find them to have medium tension, smooth feel, and that classic Roto sound out of the box, but they warm up very nicely. I play just about every day and reherse with the band once a week. I have had them on for a month or so and they are still going strong. IMHO, a very good string for rock.

    I hope this helps.
