Original Post:

I just installed [handbuilt] Markbass Ultimate Nickle Rounds 45-105 on my Fender Ultra Precision. [Had Fender 7250M from factory]

First impression out of package;
The soft touch claim is accurate and although being HEX core they are pliable and bend nicely with a well balanced tension. Slightly less than Fenders.

Fresh; the overall sound is somewhat warmer than Fenders or other Nickle's I have used when new.
They are very coherent and articulate; E string tone is deep, tight and focused all strings have a nice articulate grind and bite.

I will see how they progress during break in but as of now I am pleased, are they worth more than twice the price as some excellent production strings [$40] ; maybe not looking at it that way but for $2-4 a month depending on how long they last I am fine with that; a small investment if it makes my playing experience a little better.
