The installation of a set of Obligato on my bass put a term on my quest for acceptable strings. Obligato strings bow easily without scratch at all, and the pizz sound has a nice snap followed by a fine sustain. The volume is a bit lower than with helicores (hybrid medium) or spirocore (weich) but it does not matter since I play jazz tru a small GK. IMHO Obligato last more than a year (I pratice two hours per day, but I don't slap). Recently I have changed the E for a Thomastik Dominant for higher volume and better arco response.
I remain an enthusiastic user of Obligato strings.
