I shoot a Ross which came with the WC strings. Can't knock the string, they are very good. They are also over priced in my opinion.

Vapor Trail strings I have never used but their reputation seems to be very good. I have done some research and they use their own string material and shipping time for custom strings is very short. About $75 from what I have been hearing with your choice of colors.

I have used the Bucknasty strings on more than one ocassion and will probably reorder them for my Ross when needed. I currently have a set on my Mathews and honestly I can not tell the difference from the WC strings on the Ross. Shipping may take a bit longer but an excellent string in my opinion. Cost $60 string and cables.

Two quick examples, 8125 is a bit faster string than the 452x. Both if prestretched have very little peep rotation after being shot in. The 452x material is a bit slower but more durable and has more resistance to drastic heat changes. In my opinion 8125 would be better for those shooting 3d and 452 would be a better all around "general purpose" string.

Basically CP, it all goes back to the ole "Individual prefrence".

Bucknasty, i had them on my old Mathews, were great strings. I will be ordering some for my Ross when my winners choice needs to be replaced.

I dont know what could be the difference, but there is. I have had bad luck with Barracuda strings, can never get the peep to line up consistantly

If you shoot a tube peep like I do, is there any difference in these strings at all? I would like to shoot a Tru Peep, but can never get it to stay put on my cuda's, as well.

I've put thousands of shots through my barracuda strings and have absolutely no complaints whatsoever.

If I were going with custom strings I think both that are mentioned would perform equally as well. Another difference between string makers is coatings that are used on the loops and other little details like that.
