    Question Cable & String replacement

    I have real quick question regarding bow strings and cables. I think the Hammerhead string and cables are pretty good and I have had no issue with pep rotation and or string fray. In the past I have used Vapor Trail (great price for the quality) and Octane (pricy but the quality is outstanding) replacements but Iím curious too what others use and why. I will be replacing a Fire Cat 400 string and cables soon; the Fire Cat has the Nitro cams. Thxs for any input.

    I am also using Hutch's strings. I ran into a situation where my string broke and I needed a replacement. I placed the order with Hutch and it arrived incredibly quick. I wasn't sure how to put them on, so I went to a shop to have it done and it took me longer to get a time with the guy at the shop than it took for the strings to arrive. I started with a tubed peep, and after shooting it for a little while, the tube popped off, and I didn't like getting slapped in the face, so I tried a tubeless peep and since I installed it at the end of summer, it has not moved at all.

    IF YOU DONT USE HUTCH STRINGS YOU CAN GO HOME. LMAO Just kidding, I also use his strings after issues with the last set i had from another
    string maker. Hutches strings were exact to specs of martins strings and ive had 0 peep rotation. The guys at Sportsmans Warehouse thought his
    strings were off with specs turns out the others guys was 1/2inch too short so my bow shoots better than ever now. If you go with Hutch theres no way u can go wrong.

    With Hutch still running his special, it's a no brainer, excellent string and cables, at a very affordable price. I can't wait to get my set!

    Thanks for the input. If Hutch is listening I need a set for a fire cat 400 nitro 2011, hopefully lime green and black, if not will try to get with him on line. If he has a # and or web please help. Iím starting my January mule deer and javelin hunt 1 Jan-31Jan. The Rut is just starting here in N. Az and hoping that the work I put in pre hunt helps out. I hope the fire cat delivers. Thxs for the input and will get with Hutch. I hope the holiday deliver for all of you, my holiday starts on 1 Jan hunt.
