I put a set of these flatwounds on my Spector Q5 today. I bought them for $35 + shipping from Lakland. First thing i noticed about them is the feel. I like the feel of them better than D'Addario Chromes. They are a little less sticky feeling, and dont have the 'metallic dust' on them that rubbed off of the D'Addarios. They sound good. I wanted to get a less aggressive sound from the Spector, since the EMG HZs have an aggressive, growly tone. They have a really even tone. Basicaly if anyones looking for flatwounds other than D'Addarios and a little less expensive than TI flats, these are great strings.
