    Winners choice makes some of the best strings. If you want to wait a little longer, I can give you the name of a gentleman that will make you excellent strings cheaper then winners choice.

    If that iss what you like, then I am sure they will work for you.

    Last thing, since you are going to go with some good strings, get rid of the peep tube. Those things are unnecessary and dangerous! The Hoyt strings you had on it originally suck, that is the reason why it was set up with one. As long as your string is not moving and twisting, the peep if set up correctly and tight will turn correctly all the time.

    quote:Winners choice makes some of the best strings.

    I disagree on that, I have Winners choice now, got it before the 08 season started, my peep is still rotating. I'll never buy WC again. Try Stone Creek or Bucknasty. I hear and read a lot of good about bucknasty but I haven't had a personal experience with them yet.

    Try a Montana Black Gold Flashpoint sight (, you won't be disappointed, the photochromatic shell keeps the pins bright as all get out with out the halo. the shell adjusts to let in the perfect amount of light. They are so bright you'll swear its a lighted system but its not. Its not a 1 pin but thats all I use on it is 1.
    Drop away, I've got nothin for ya there. I have a Rip cord, its ok at best. I agree with shoff on the peep and tube deal, get rid of that before ya get hurt. Stab, I like the S-coil small, simple, effective. do replace strings and cables together, I try to change them out every 2 years. thats just me tho.

    Sweeeeet! can't wait for the pics..
    Going over budget is something that seems to happen a lot when you mess with these things. [;)]

    FYI...I meant to say Stone Mountain, not Stone Creek. Not that it matters now [:D]
