    I know there's a string section - but hardly anyone goes there!
    Stingray 5 fretless - I like the roundwound strings but they'll chew up the rosewood fretboard (yep, not pau ferro).
    I like GHS grounds but they dont do 5's. Fender flats I hate.
    A nickel roundwound?
    A coated roundwound?
    D'Addario halfwound?
    DR Sunbeams?
    I can't afford to try them all .. .help!!

    nickel rounds will still chew your fretboard.

    D'Addario Chromes are great flats with a very ringing tone (for flats) but if you hate other flats, they may not be your thing.

    or...You could get the GHS grounds that you like, and just get the B string from another set. juststrings.com has single strings.

    Haven't tried the D'addario half-rounds...
