I love DR Hi Beams on my Fender Jazz but when I put them on my Stingray, I hated them. I thought they were way too bright and clacky sounding. When I had had a Stingray before, my favorite strings were actually Ernie Ball Slinkys. So I guess the point of my post is, some strings sound better on some basses than others. There isn't an across the board best string for all basses if your picky about it.
