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.

Good info. Archers are finally getting to "know" their equipment and have the resources to make good choices based on their needs.

LAST 2 STRINGS THAT I HAD WHERE ZEBRAS AND THEY TWISTED BAD AFTER ABOUT 100 SHOTS

THANKS FOR THE LINK F1


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.



i had the strings installed by a reputable mathews dealer and they installed the peep when they put on the string


Well, there's the start of your problems. The shop should have had you shoot your bow 50-100 times before actually installing the peep in your string. I would almost be willing to bet that your Zebra's/Barracuda's would have been just fine had that been done.

I have shoot several hundreds shots thru a zebra string and it still moved , when I got rid of the bow it was on the bow and the stupid thing was still creeping.

I have been told by a string manufacturer to put the peeop and loop on before shooting it in and finish tweeking after it has had 50-100 shots. With string that has no/little creep I think it may be a time saver to just put accessories on the string and dial it in, zebra strings a completely different story. IMO

VERY GOOD STRINGS..... Fast friendly service... I used to shoot only Winners Choice, until I read about VT and tried one... With proper care, I think you can shoot as much s you possibly can and wouldnt need to replace the string nearly as often as other brands!
