Got some strings in this week.  Put a low tension set on my  OM SS and BOOM!, the beast came alive!  Bass is there in spades but everything is nice and even across the fingerboard.  I also ordered a mid tension set and put in on my H&D dread and the power and volume is on another level.    And my concern about the low tension on a short scale were instantly dismissed.  No issues there.

Been playing Elixir PB nano strings for years so I’m having to relearn a little technique to minimize the finger squeak but the tone is 100% better.
