I got a lot of extra cash at x-mas and I feel like splurging on something nice for my bass. I saw these http://www.juststrings.com/drs-sib5-45.html and http://www.juststrings.com/drs-mr5-bk-45.html and I thought it would be cool to have like a black-white-black-white-black pattern going on, but if i'm going to spend that much money on strings, does anyone know if they really are "extra-life"? If I get these I want to know that they are going to last a good while. Thanks for any help.

thank you for stoping this RIDICULOUS argument.
and standing on the side of truth.
but your princess is in another castle
if there anything like the elixir coated strings they'll last a decent amount of time. keeps all the crap out that comes from ur sweaty dirty fingers and keeps them sounding nice and new for a while... even tho ive noticed if u play with a pick coated strings actually get the coating frayed around ur picking area and dulls the sound a little bit.
Keep On Keepen' On
some people don't like coated strings (like myself)

but u might like those.

Its all opinion, the only way you'll know for you if if you try them
In my opinion i think its a waste of money, those strings are really expensive and most people dont like coated strings, go try some before you buy them.
