I've currently got a mix of Hybrids and Obligatos on my bass, so I can't take you up on your trade. But my experience with the Obligatos is that they don't last as long as Helicores (or Spirocores, still my favorites). I scrapped my first set of Obligatos after about 10 months. I don't change strings often so I don't think that was the issue. It may be that the synthetic cores just don't hold up as well as metal. But they sound great when they're new!
