I like to use Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinky Bass strings on my bass, but I prefer to use the E string from an Ernie Ball Power Slinky Bass string set (I'm not really sure why, I just prefer it), does this matter?

Ibanez K5
Warwick Rockbass Vampyre 4

Line 6 Bass Pod XT Live
Epiphone Les Paul Custom
It won't really matter as long as the set of gauges isn't too far off. The only thing that matters is the potential cost of having to buy 2 sets of strings every time you restring and using only one string from one of the sets. It won't matter to the bass at all though.
