So I need some new strings for my Stingray V, the one's it came with are far too heavy for my liking, so I'm looking for a good set of Hybrids, without really breaking the budget so, not more that £30 really

Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinkies are always a good choice, and a great price too. Sound good with Stingers in my experience.

Actually, I'd try Rotosound Swing Bass 665.

These are what I'm currently using on my bass. WhyLater flip-flopped on me though so I better go get some Rotosounds.

Nah! Keep those Slinkies on! I'm keeping mine on! That way, we can stick it to these Rotosound-using elitist scumbags together!

...

I just didn't want to be alone...

(That's right I called you elitist scumbags.)

I may be an elitist, and I may be a scumbag, but I am NOT Rotosound-usi... erm, nevermind.

I have rotosounds on my fender and squier and hybrid slinkies on my sterling. After switching back and forth between my basses I really prefer the feel of slinkies. Since you have a stingray I say go for some slinkies

Just going to throw Warwick strings into the mix. Very long life, a well balenced response and a touch of growl.

I am too, except for that pickguard.

Go with Ernie Ball Hyrbid Slinkies, TS.

GHS BOOMERS

G-H-S BASS BOOMERS are some of the best strings out there. lots don't like them but they really sound and feel great. barring that, the d'addario XL nickelwounds are a good safe choice.

^Don't Boomers last like 15 seconds?

No I believe GHS Boomers go dead right out of the package, as soon as you uncoil them.

EBs are good, but if you are used to Rotos, EBs also have a shorter life as well. I used to go through a set in about 4 weeks in daily play.
