I have read all of posts related to strings and wanted to ask for more opinions since I have started a renewed search for the ultimate slap string set (interest in brand and gauge preferences). I found a couple of unused sets I had been saving from a few years back (Superwound 606, 030-090) that I strung up on my newly acquired Status. These strings sound and play great even if the the wrap goes thru the nut (they are long scale and I require extra long scale for the Status). Anyway the Superwounds by Rotosound are discontinued (I'm not sure why...I'd be interested if anyone knows why). I've heard that Elites and DR's are excellent choices, although Elites are hard to come by in the States. Any help from the FunkMasters out there would be greatly appreciated.
