The Balanced Tension Makes a Difference

Comments about D'Addario EXL170BT Balanced Tension 45-107 Long Scale Electric Bass String Set:

I was debating between these and a "normal" set of EXL170's (45-100). I've always been happy with D'Addario's strings, but I haven't played a balanced tension set before. After having done so, I have to admit that I like the change from "normal" sets. I'm not sure if I'll buy again in the future instead of going back to something cheaper and saving my money, but I'm definitely enjoying this set of strings while I've got them.
