    I Give up, Arggggh:mad:

    I have been looking for strings and extensively read hundreds of posts in the string forum and all I have learned is that every string is Flat, Bright, Dead, Growly, thumpy, tight, sloppy, rough, smooth, and every other descriptive term used to describe a Bass string.

    This must be the most unagreed upon subject on the planet:confused:

    Oh well, tomorrow I go and dump big bucks and find out for myself:D

    I feel you..its so subjective. Everytime I get a new bass it's a month long, $200.00 string quest!

    Opinions on strings are just a very personnal matter. I suggest you shop around till you find a brand you're happy with!!

    I like the Blue Steels, but they're seriously coarse: blistertown USA. And they die rather quickly. But boy do they sound great.
