Good Strings
LeeOliveira, 03.01.2018
Bought these strings for a student of mine.
She uses a Fender Shot Scale Jaguar, the 5250XL suits her bass very very well.
Sound:
The 5250XL gives the bass a good round and the big sound. Maybe a little bit too much, these are not sthe strings if you are into slap, i'd put these strings on the pop/rock side.

Durability:
I guess the lasted as much as any bass strings with normal everyday use.

Conclusion:
Not the best but also not the worst strings on the market, for the price they are very good indeed

I will keep them
Dirk9070, 25.02.2014
I needed to change the cheap factory strings from my short scale bass
So i was curious if there is a difference when i change to the Fender 5250XL
Now i can say yes, there is a difference, it is a much better feeling for my fingers with the Fender 5250XL and also the sound is better.

There is not many strings you can choose for a short scale, so i dont now if can find better strings than the Fender 5250XL. I think it is not easy to find the perfect strings for a short scale bass. Every instrument will sound different, so my first test was the Fender 5250XL. They are much better than the factory strings from my short scale Harley Benton Bass and i will keep them on it.

Nice strings!
HiltrudIR, 19.05.2014
I bought the Fender 5250XL Short Scale for my Precision by Harley Benton. What can I say? They fit this instrument perfectly. They are easy on the fingers and they ring out. They also last a long time. The sound is punchy and also can growl by adjusting the tone control appropriately. These strings sound less agressive than pure steel strings. That is what I like about them. I also like the the surface of the Fender strings: Not too rough. Moreover they are not expensive at all! Usually I prefer flatwound strings on my other Precison bass. Unfortunately Fender only has long scale flatwound strings. To sum up, I can say that these short scale strings are worth to give them a try. You won't be disappointed. Very good value for money!

Fender Bass Strings
17.07.2016
Fender Short scale 5250SL strings were measured by my Tech as +/-.080 (should have been .095). Strings were already fitted to my bass and had to be discarded as could not be returned to Thomann.
Lesson here - Fender make good guitars but their strings are woefully poor. I reverted to a set of DR Bass Strings - cost a lot more but their sizing was accurate!!
