    They are some of the better factory strings out right now. I like mine better though .

    Paul.....no doubt, yours Rock!

    But allow me to state that Martin Double-Helix strings are made, by Martin, from a proprietary material produced exclusively for us by BCY. We call it Double Helix and it is a special blend of materials that provides performance while eliminating stretch and creep.

    As much as i like making my own stuff, I have to admitt none of the factory strings have given a bit of trouble and the workmanship has been excellent. The end servings are very tight and neat.

    I just got these green and gold Stone Mountain strings slapped on my C4 Cougar. I think they are pretty tough!

    the cables on my 05 shadowcat (I recently bought this bow as nearly unused)are served with a very tiny clear serving,looks a bit like dental flos to me)
    I haven't seen something like this before on a bow.
    is this standart on these helix strings?

    Not to my knowledge, DBL Helix is something new for 06. It sounds like someone put a custom set on there served with Halo or something similar, is it flat or round ?. I use a very fine serving as well but it is not clear.

    Hey Paul,
    maybe the pic can tell you wether its are factory strings or custom build strings.
    I think the end servings are #62 0.021
    the thin serving that is wraped around the cables (not on the string) became clear by the tension of the serv. if I would take it of, i geuss it would be white like dental floss.
