I was playing someone's bass, i'm not exactly sure who's.... But, the strings were completely smooth, like, they were one solid piece of metal. And they felt like they were covered in plastic or something. What were they?

hmm...it could be plastic covered flatwounds...my friend had this bass and i asked him why there were plastic covers on the strings and he said that the strings lasted him over a year so he used them

Flatwounds man, they feel good but I find that they need to be changed VERY often.

flatwounds for sure. stick to rounds, they fit more places, imo.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

Faltwounds. If you put roundwounds on a fretless board that hasn't been coated then you'd chew the wood to hell.
