Just got a fretless guitar so should I put flatwound strings on it?

Flatwounds sound and feel smoother than roundwound strings. And that's what people are generally aiming for with a fretless. But i can't see why you can't you use roundwounds and try and retain some brightness, maybe you can get some fretboard buzz with roundwounds?

I love flatwounds...for certain applications. On my gretsch, awesome, my teles, not so much.

Plus, they are damned expensive.

Seriously, I'm not a fan of iphones and guitars mixing.
for the love of god yes, roundwounds raep your fretboard. Saw it happen on my buddy's bass. He strung it with roundwounds, played it for a day or two and they were already starting to gouge the fretboard. Bass is obviously different (thicker strings duh) but i would imagine the same thing would happen to your guitar, maybe not as dramatically and quickly but still
