I am in a band dispute on bass vs 6 string regarding some professional bassists.

I would guess that it has to do with settings, obviously judging from what has happened with LINK REMOVED BY MODERATOR. But technical?

What technicalities are used in playing the bass guitar the are not involved in the bottom strings of a 6 string?

Thank you,
sweeping, tapping and playing economicly are much easier than on most 4 strings. Mostly because of the smaller strings and more available notes per fret. Do not get a guitar just because it has "professional amount". I made that mistake and although my 6er was better than my 4 string, I wasted a lot of money for less quality than I should have gotten.

Edit: Slapping can be very difficult on a 6er if you don't have the right guitar and setup.
