    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.

    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'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?
