Have you used it what if anything did like or dislike over using 452x and 450+ I still have some 452 and 450+ left but was thinking about trying the 8190 is it worth buying or just use up what I have then try it ??? I only make a couple sets a strings a year for my self and friends

Hey TEN RING, I have not used 8190 yet. But to let you know what most of the string makers are saying. Its faster and a good string material. But remember it is not perfectly stable. Like 450,452x, and Trophy. Bcy 8190g is 100% Dyneema and gore fiber it has the lowest amount of creep. But it still has creep which causes it to be less stable. I use trophy which is 100% stable. Depending on how much you shoot if you shoot a lot you might have some peep rotation after some time. But less time then Bcy 8125g, that material had a lot of creep. I would only get 6 to 7 months of shooting out of that.

I would not take the couple fps for added creep I tryed the 8125 a couple years ago pick up 2-3 fps but it had some creep not much but some guess i'm staying with the 450's and I still have 2 spool new spool of s-4 witch I like but not the colors that I have

452x and trophy are the best I have used, otherwise I would have changed but now. More speed add speed nocks and the least strands recommended for the string material.

22 strands of Trophy or 452x for the strings, 24 for the cables. Shorten up all servings as much as possible. Put on speed nocks and your good to go.

we call it speed tuning with a chronograph moving the speed nock up & down and adding one or take away til you fined the sweet spot

We've been seeing great results with the 8190. It's shows the same stability as 452x with a nice gain in speed, better durability and it's quieter on the shot. We also do alot of 8190 string with 452x combos for 'the best of both worlds'. This is the combination that I use on my personal bows.

How are you doing the combo sets, build wise?

Generally 8190 for the string and 452x for cables. I believe that is how Brad even does his personal bows.

I have two bows with 8190 and so far so good. No peep rotation yet and they-er fast. Have about 1000 or so shots on the Alpine Verdict w/ 8190 string and 452 on cables. I will say that I have a set of Trophy strings by Hutch on my Fire Cat 400 and after a 1 1/2 yrs no creep or peep rotation. So far I like both, I'm starting to like the speed as my broad heads fly much better on accuracy. (Slick Trick Mag 100)
