Never ordered aftermarket strings before, just ordered Vapor Trail Strings from Dan at MeanV. I experienced great service, a great price, and expect the product do be no different. I will write up a review when I get them on.

Winners Choice as Bowtechs come standard wit these fine strings. I put a Vapor Trail on one of my Hoyts and it was gr8 string. Whatever you get...make sure it is prestretched and creep free. I won't use a a rubber band peep on my bow and these features are important if I want my peep to align each time I draw my bow. There are of guys on AT that build custom strings too

I've never purchased strings. I make my own but if I were to, they would probably be straight from Bowtech or Vapor Trail.

I see no reason to pay Winner Choice price when M&R Strings are just as good (if not better) and half the price.

Gibblet, here on HNI makes some good strings. I bought a set and they are holding up great. Good prices and CS too.

They're called Bucknasty strings.

Not when it comes to bows. Been at it a long time, probably made 100 or more strings/cables. My 06 Ally has my own string on it.

I noticed I can't use the English language very well. See the purchase purchase remark? [8D] [&:]

BowTech strings are made in house, and are not Winners Choice.

I always like a spare string so I put on Vapor Trails and keep the BowTech OEM strings as backup. They are a fine string in their own right.
