I just wanted to share by experience with 60X strings. It was great!! I jumped on their website Monday morning (memorial day) and saw they did a 3 colored string, which I thought was great b/c I wanted to do Red/White/Blue for my new RX1. I wrote an email to ask about turn around time, etc. expecting to not receive a reply until Tuesday, but nope, I received a reply within minutes, even on a holiday. Submitted an order and selected the express shipping and just received my strings today! I even made some last minute changes to serving color and they were prompt and pleasurable with dealing with my pickiness.. I haven't put them on yet, but they look great and very quality! I am getting them strung on Friday, so pics to follow. But if their performance is anything like their customer service, I am positive they will be top notch!

Good to know. I've never heard of 3-color strings, but sounds cool. Post pic when you're done.

60x is great all around. Price value service the whole deal

I have many strings from 60x. Bcy X on a compound, and two Brownell Fury recurve strings. Top quality.

Padded loop recurve strings would be the icing on the cake. I over-served by hand over their loop serve to fatten the loops.

They also made me a couple dacron recurve strings. All top notch stuff.

I've tried them all. 60x is the best I have used by far.

Great strings. I have 60X on all of my bows but one (my compound). Great customer service and great color selection along with choices of string material. I have a three color string-red and white string with blue loops and blue serving on an American made Bear bow.

No doubt, good color selection and great customer service.

I was about to start my own post!

Not only is there value and service... the quality is outstanding.

I installed the full set, had a full tune done and shot my bow.

Zero stretch, I mean Zero.

Thx 60x once again.

I switched to 60X strings after using Winner's choice for years. The quality of strings from 60X is very hard to beat. I'm using BCY X on my recurves and love the performance I'm getting. Because of the heat in Arizona, I was very worried about stretch, but these strings never stretched on me. A great string...

And... Since I changed the strings I figured I should pull out the ol' fletching jig too

ya but how do the servings hold up?

^^^^ This. That is the bad luck I had with them. Took three tries to get good loop end servings on a control cable, and then the main serving around the cam separated within a few weeks.

Just stating what my experience was. Went to a totally diff string builder for the cables three weeks prior to an elk hunt and then put the string on after it was over.

HDE, who do you use? I like JBK but am tired of waiting 5 or 6 weeks.
