    I use two depending on my release choice. With a wrist strap release like my rx1 or rhino XT I like Gibbs original super loop. It's stiffer then BCY 24 and wears better. However if I am using a hand held I prefer the limpness of the BCY material.

    I have both BCY 24 and Gibb's super loop. I can easily tie in the BCY, but man that Gibb's stuff is like using wire. Still shooting the BCY with a drawer full of Gibb's.

    I've been using BCY 23 and have been happy with it. Slightly smaller in diameter than 24 so it seems to bite into the center serving a little easier. On these ABB strings the center serving is so tight I was having issues with some loops rotating no matter how hard I cinched them down. Since switching to BCY 23 it hasn't been an issue.
