Sticky, tight strings?

    So a problem has come up with my Epiphone EB-3 bass. The strings I currently have on it feel very sticky and stiff, but the strings aren't very old at all. Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

    What kind of strings are they? Rotosound maybe?

    Sounds like the definition for new Chromes.

    The stickiness goes away after a day or two of solid playing.
