If I was you, I would call him first to find out the lead time.
Here's another good one..http://www.archerytalk.com/vb/showthread.php?t=439879, Bucknasty..
OK, now I'm confused. So "Crackers" has two websites??
And I tried to make sense out of his tuning tip (ATA vs brace height vs draw length) but couldn't. I just gave up. Maybe you can make sense of it for me? I'm using my 30" DL module and twisting the cable to get the ATA to spec (32 1/4"). Just ignoring brace height. So that's wrong??
I did understand the part where he said to twist one side of the yoke to get your idler parallel with the string. That's contrary to what I've read elsewhere: you want the arrow laid alongside the idler to intersect the string at your D-Loop. Which is right?
PS. I pulled out my extra Martin factory cable and replaced the suspicious one with that and everything seems to be working better. Except that the Martin cable grew 1/4" after only about 30 shots. So I twisted the 1/4" out of it, but haven't shot it since. Kind of a pain to have to do that every 30 shots. At least I'm figuring out that I need to get another cable. I'll put the Martin one away when I get the new one.

The website that you put up in your thread is not Crackers website. Its another, "Mike".. I have bought from the web site that you put in your thread, an he does make a good string also.
So, now that I have completely confused ya'... either "Mike" is a good string maker.
Yep! Low stretch material I like, creep in a string I don't. 452x doesn't seem to have any stretch at all, putting more stress on the bow. Ok for cables but not for strings imho. I believe creep is to do with how well the string is made, not what its made from
If 452x doesn't have any stretch and in addition it's pre-stretched, that seems ideal for both cables and strings. I don't want my ATA to change, neither do I want my draw length to change or my peep to rotate.
Thought I might send this to ya'...http://www.bcyfibers.com/tech_forum.php
Info that maybe you haven't read on BCY's strings... I buy only string sets that are 452X, an tell the string maker what nock & arrow I am using(they usually ask anyway). Hope this helps some...
