FDP Forum / Fender Bass Guitars and Bass Amps / Infeld IN-344 strings???

I was travelling and saw a set of Infeld IN344's.... bright yellow package -- heavier than the usual TI Flat sets, this one goes 105 to 45. But the packaging didn't categorically describe them as flats or rounds!!

Does anyone know, and what is the tension like compared to TI Flats? They were significantly less expensive than TI Flats, but not so much that I'd buy a set without more knowledge.... TI Flats go for about 80 dollars Canadian, and these were 50.

Yes I did see that shortly afterward - so they are, seemingly, rounds that are softer. But I'm still wondering if anyone has played them, and how they compare for tension....

I tried them years ago when they first came out and didn't like the brightness but that may be your thing.

According to digiboy they are hex core. Hex core will always feel stiffer but hold tuning well while round core allows the outer wrap to slide some making them feel easier to press.

TI site says (about Jazz Flats): " T-I Jazz Flats use a highly pliable steel core wrapped with silk. The outer winding is a true ribbon flat wound constructed of a special nickel alloy resulting in an incredible depth of tone and enhanced fundamentals."

No mention of hex or round core. Anyone know? If they are stiffer than TI Flats.

As for holding tune well, I have never had TI Flats do anything but hold tune. Perfectly, often for months at a time!
