I bought my string and cable's from gibblet from this forum ,they're known as J.A.M. String's ,at half the cost of winner's choice and zebra you can't go wrong.John does a great job on his string's and the serving are second to none.Here's his e-mail he's a great guy to deal with .

I've used Zebra, various local string makers and Winners Choice. Winners Choice, you get what you pay for.

Whatever you do, don't even get close to a Zebra string. They creep forever. I've had very good results from Prostrings and Winner's Choice. There are a lot of other good string makers such as Vapor Trail, Berry and others. The difference between a lot of generic strings and good aftermarket is that even though made of the same material, most good string makers prestretch their strings to several hundred pounds. This removes a lot of the creep you get with the el-cheapo's and it and it evens out the strands so that each is doing equal work. Then most also serve their strings under tension which reduces or eliminates serving separation. The strings shoot in quicker, creep maybe 1/8" and are very stable after that, so that your bow doesn't change it's tune over time.

Sometimes you gain speed, sometimes not. You'll get an added benefit of very little or no peep rotation, which means you can scrap the heavy peep with the stupid rubber hose aligner.

Winner's Choice. They shot right in and haven't moved a hair since. I was able to switch to a two-strand peep and it is exactly in the same spot shot after shot.
