Sorry. This is a duplicate. My mistake. Please see the original post from 2 hours ago.

I have been using Thomastik CF 27 for C string (Low G tuning) and quite happy with it. CF 27 is thinner and sometimes sits lower in the nut slot, in turn needs some nut adjustment. I was thinking if anyone has tried CF 30 for C string? That should eliminate the thinner string conundrum.

I know some players like CF 30 for low G. How about using CF 35 for the low G?

Last question. Will using two steel strings in a set put too much pressure on the bridge?

Any input will help. Thank you.

The bass strings aren't steel strings but nylon or fiber with metal, bronze/copper, nickel, etc. wrapped around the fibre core.
