    Looks like Hogwire is no longer in business. Shame, Rob did some fine work. So, whose a good maker of strings /cables now?

    I'll need a set for my Elite Synergy.

    Catfish Customs string, mike does some great work.

    JBK is good also and been building sets forever. Has good service and reputation

    I have a sets on my Kure and Energy 35 from Wicked Twisted Bowstrings. They offer BCY and Bloodline materials. I’m particularly impressed with the Bloodline and the craftsmanship of their serving. Feel free to use my 10% off discount code “DC” at checkout.

    My last couple strings have been from Mike at Catfish Customs, been real pleased with them. Lengths are spot on and nice serving work.

    I’ve been happy with 2 sets I bought from 60x. Great strings and fast shipping

    In no specific order. 60x, catfish, twisted x, breathern/ Johns custom archery, gas, ABB. So many to choose from!

    Twisted X is good quality, I have two bows and always purchase my sets well before needed. Normally purchase them a year or so before needed so I always have a new set on hand for either bow, for emergency or so I do not have to wait when needed. Just put a set of twisted X on my halon I bought a year or so ago, and first attempt on a Mathews 5-piece set, yokes and all, specs were dead on, ATA, brace. etc. Shot it a few dozen times set the peep, and was perfect the first time, just got lucky there, but hasn't moved, since.

    My last few sets have been Twisted X which all have been flawless. I hear a lot of talk of Catfish Customs, so did pick up a set to try for my other bow, but these will not be installed to next Season, with the exception if needed before hand?

    So eventually I'll be able to compare Catfish to Twisted X, but as of now cannot comment on Catfish yet, but as stated I know Twisted X are top quality sets.
