    Thumbs up for 8190X !

    I've just restrung the current Mrs Exarchers Contender with a set of strings and cables made of the new 8190X string material.

    IMHO it's as good as the manufacturers claim ...... half a dozen shots to 'bed things in' and absolutely no movement since. It's a bit thinner than 8125 or 452X so you will need to up the strand count by a couple
    3 are a group, 2 are just a coincidence.

    Any change in speed or the feel of the shot?

    The speed increased by 2,5 fps (archers advantage) on a bow set at 43 lbs at the moment. There was no obvious change in the feel of the shot.

    Winners Choice ! they are supplying all their strings in 8190X now unless specified otherwise. I paid a similar price for 452X Hoyt string and cables last year and paid a $10 supplement for a new set for my Maitland Session... they have to have cables served with thin Halo due to the cam.

    How many strands are the Winners Choice ? I had to use a thinner center 0.19 serving with 26 strands for a good nock fit wth G nocks
    so went back to 24 strands and .21 centre serving
