Well i've heart alot of things about elixir strings . I use them on one of my basses. They are good strings and never had toubles with them. But some friends of mine who also use them they say that the broke really often. Maybe i dont play as hard as they do?... hmm... mut i play metal!! why do theirs are breaking then?

I've heard that Elixir guitar strings are the week, but any bass strings are difficult to break. Awesome strings, by the way

Sex, pizza, the smell of fresh washing and slap bass.

Breaking bass strings is a very rare occurance that in 99% of the cases has nothing to do with string quality. Most of the time it is due to failing to put on the strings properly, and the bulk of the remaining cases can be put down to faulty hardware like damaged bridges, nuts and tuners. Then there are some rare cases caused by people who practise particularly destructive playing styles and thats about it. Faulty strings hardly show up in the statistics, so if you put on strings that break twice as much as avarage you still wouldn't notice. I think your friends should look elsewhere for a cause of their problems and that you can confidently rely on the quality of Elixer strings.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

Chromosomes. =/

Sounds to me like your friends just have really bad technique or something. No matter what brand of string, it's really hard to break them.
