Ernie Ball Compoud Radius D Bass String?

This must be new technology that I am dumb to not know about.Apparently I noticed it while doing setup on my student Bass.Rarely in my life I would tune the guitar or bass using the E string or other notes.

Ask all my students and they'll say Teacher Yus always say "Give me a D" prior to lesson.
I have been hearing the D note since 1984..so I know a D when I hear one.But on this bass its unlike any D I hear.In fact I never heard such mess up,all over the the place and tuner kind of D.

Checked the D string and found the problem,called my student to check whether its a stock string or new ones.

well..what do you know...its a New SET of Ernie Ball Bass string...bugger,first its the guitar pots and now the string??
Are we sleeping on the jobs now??is it made in China?Taiwan?

Any one from Ernie Ball care to reply here??Nathan Stiff?
