String Satisfaction

I haven’t been looking for playing satisfaction in my strings for over 3 years now since moving to Texas.   I have been quite pleased by my mix of Flexocor solo strings and Flexocor (G/D) and Orig. Flex. (A/E) for most of my playing.   Just over a month ago I re-strung my bass with some previously used Original Flatchrome’s with a Permanent extended-E, and boy do they sound great!   When I used this setup in the past I had a heavier tailpiece and a chunky stock end-pin on my bass, also heavier.   I can see an immediate improvement to my sound now and the response is great.  Has anybody tried the new Passione strings?   I also missed the Evah Pirazzi fad a few years ago when those were first released.  Feel free to leave feedback with your favorite strings of choice.
