    Bass could benefit from a radius.

    Only stating from my own experience, but I don't have any issues with the string bending.
    I think my hand seems more comfortable with the radius but it's not that great a difference.

    Charles Mingus could certainly put some speed into his.
    So why not the electric basses?

    I know it's subjective, but 'daphne blue' (absurd title as Daphnes are not blue) would attract a similar polarising viewpoint.
