    I have been wanting to place an order with juststrings.com, and I am researching what type of string I'd like.

    I want a LOW tension string.

    I am leaning towards Ken Smith Slap Masters for my 4 string (35-95 I think) and SR5 (40-120).

    Any low tension string recommendations?

    Zon Ultrasonic Lights are about the lowest tension string that I've played. Actually the TI stuff is really low tension too.
