string and cable replacement.

Postby mag30079 » Sat Jan 29, 2011 8:47 am

Now that the season is over it time to get all my equipment ready for next season. Starting with my bow, my sting and cables are first on my list. In the past I have always bought Winners choice stings and cables, but the price is high. I've been looking at other brands such as Zebra. Also a bow tech friend of mine mentioned custom strings and cables a friend of his makes.
What does everyone like to use?

Thanks

No factory strings hold a candle to a quality custom set of strings. I have used several different types and the ones I always go back to is the Vapor Trail strings. Order them in the colors you want and they are delivered within a week. Set of string and cables runs about $75. Can't beat em.

I use factory only as well, the bow tech I go to tells me when I need them replaced. Only thing I can think of if your not using factory is the warrenty sometimes companies won't fix limbs if custom strings are added gotta look online and see what people have said.

Thank you everyone. I agree the factory stuff is the way to go, but I'm gonna try the Vapor trail string and cables. Nice quality stuff.
In 2 years maybe I'll order again.
