Best of both worlds - great price!
Got these for a fretless bass I made. I thought they were the flat wound style like the black Rotos but in fact they are round wound strings of a slightly lower gauge that have been coated with black nylon. So they are smooth and won't scar your fingerboard but are brighter sounding than the normal flat wounds. They look cool too! Groovy baby!

cool strings
Haven't used with the band but I like the not-flat feel. Need to hear them LOUD.

Very bright and warm too!
Roundwound brightness inside, nylon smoothness outside. Low tension so you'll have to get used to that, but really cool sounding, not to mention the cool black appearance against the maple board on my Jazz.

Interesting compromise...
These are basically (to my fingers and ears) rounds with a nylon coating. Sure, that's the typical tape-wound formula, but Fender uses a rather thin (and dense) coating that preserves a lot of the roundwound character in the string, mostly killing the highs and string noise but to nowhere near the extent it can be said of other tape-wound strings. Probably the "crunchiest" tape-wound you'll ever play. I don't really like how they feel, a bit stiff, but I'm sure it's something you can get used to. For fret or fingerboard preservation with a medium round-wound growl these might be just what the doctor ordered. As for me, I'll probably never return to them... but not bad.

Hard to find set; Great Price!
Awesome strings! Much brighter than flatwounds.
Seem to me they clean easier as well. My flatwounds feel tacky or sticky to me after a few shows; and I am a freak about wiping down my basses after I play. The nylons slide better under my fingers.
