This has nothing to do with the string twisting. Two components dictate how the string performs: the material being used and how the string is made (prestretching, etc.). Not sure why you don't want Zebra's or Baracuda's as I've used several of these over the years and have never had a problem with peep rotation. Anyway, I've also used strings from Mike at H&M Bowstrings, http://www.hmbowstrings.com, and have had good success as well. Mike will make your order on a timely basis and will make it any way you want it.

You're welcome.

Just out of curiosity, did you shoot your last two sets of Zebra strings 50-100 times before installing the peep? If not, that could have been your problem. All strings need to be broken in by shooting several times before actually installing the peep. I've done this with all of my strings, and strings I've installed for other archers, and I have yet to run into a problem with peep rotation.

The only string I know that I will never use is the zebra, I haven't used the baracuda so I can't comment. Most string Manufacturers are using the same materials and it comes down to choice. I have had serving seperation from all the strings I have used, it happens to all of them. I am sure quality on most is very good or they wouldn't have the reputations they do. I can honestly say I can't figure how someone likes one string over the other of equal quality materials used.

I know I prefer Winners Choice over all of them but that is because they are probably the largest custom bow string make around and I have had good luck with them. I ordered another brand and I hope it will last as long as my current string has. All things being equal I think it all comes down to how we take care of it. I wax my string all the time and try to keep dirt and grime out of it. I do not baby my gear but I take care of it.
I guess all I am trying to say is buy a good string from a reputable manufacturer, take care of it and enjoy.

Most of the good strings are made with 452X material that has very little creep . Besides the material used , I look for good wrapped harness ends , quality servings , etc.
