I like them old- if I like them. If not they don't get a chance to be very old- but I like to stop noticing the strings and just play, making the sounds I like. When that happens it's golden. I've got a set of TI Jazz Flats on a Squier I put together with some help from folks here, and that's a fixture now. The day I change those will be a benchmark, I imagine.
