JBK strings. Rogue are good too but higher priced.

60x

Why does 60x always get so many comments? I'm on my third Hout and always replaced with Hoyt strings. I shoot a lot. What am I missing. My archery pro says Hoyy is just fine, and I don't know the difference. ???

JBK strings makes the best strings and has the best customer service in the industry right now. Call and talk to Jeff over there and you will never look back. Get the new Rampage material. Super quiet, and super fast.

Thanks Elkman, definitely will give them a try.

May check out Catfish Customs as well. I have used these strings for several years now on my Xpeditions. Mike made me a set of strings out of rampage material and I picked up 7 fps over the factory strings. No stretch, no twist, no frays, no hassles. $80 choose your colors.

60X or if you want to pay up, Winner's Choice.

I have not had had good luck with my 60x strings. I've tried twice and the string has frayed very easily. Also, the serving on the ends separates where it wraps the cams.

My last few sets are from Archeryshack.com. They make some nice threads and have great CS. I had one set from 60X, yokes started coming apart after a few hundred shots. When contacted I was told warranty didn't cover the yokes. No more 60X for me.

I've used 60x many times and have always been happy, tried archeryshack on my last 2 sets and they are great, and the price was right!

Jbk has a 2 year warranty. That sold me. I bought a set but haven’t installed them yet. 60x doesn’t cover yokes? I wouldn’t touch a string company that pulled that bs.

DO NOT do winners choice at this point

I have JBK strings on all 3 of my bows. Great price, great product.

Wyobull has it right as usual. (You know that seems like a common theme around here... LOL!)

Another vote for 60X - the BEST!!

From: Shaft2Long

I bought some 60x and wasn't impressed. Just sayin.

Best strings I've ever purchased were from a guy on Archery Talk. His name is John something, goes by Breathn on AT, Johns customs is his business. You may have to wait awhile for the strings but the sets I've purchased were far and away better than anything else.

A few guys on AT that can hook you up with and excellent set. Ex wolverine( tom park and sons archery) Breathn ( johns custom archery). Also Bart Shortall Xfire Bowstrings. BSD, bow string depot. Bill Hutchinson

all these guys are top not, quality work and good prices. they don't churn of the numbers like 60x, WC, ABB which shows in the quality and CS

Trial is on the money here. Best part is they are usually cheaper!

I ran hogwire x-99. Had it made all one color no pinstripes or anything and the peep never moved and it held a tune all season.
