Default Changing my string

Hi All,

I think that I am going to get rid of the factory string on my Hoyt Powertec, and need a little advice.

I used it for one year and its not that good....anyway my question to everyone is should I spend the money and get a new string and cables? Or should I just get a string?

I had a Winner's Choice before and liked it (on my Dynatec). However the BassPro near me, only carries a brand called Taylor Made???? and they dont have any cables.

Anyone have experience with Taylor Made?

Thanks
Jim

PS> I think I figured out what sizes I need based on this:




PowerTec XT1000

Cam / Wheel
% Letoff
Brace Height
Axle to Axle
Draw Length
Module Position
Base Cam
String
Control Cable
Buss Cable

Cam & 1/2 Adjustable

There's a member here named "gibblet" that makes strings and seems like everybody is very happy with his products. You might look him up and p.m. him.

They helped me make all conferencemyjuniorand senior year inhighschool, great golf clubs

I'd spend the money and get custom strings and cables. I'm glad I did.

Send Gibblet a PM. He makes excellent strings, variety of colors, string materials, etc. I just got a set and love them...finally out shooting the past two days.
