    I use/used Viper X on the SCM Twinbow Six Pack, Excal Vortex, V 175, TRT Ultra Lite and Strykeforce. Great string and cables with the least amount of center serving problems of any custom string I've used.

    The new Strykezone 350 and 380 have a totally unique double string claw, which, at least in theory (my theory:-) shortens "lock time" because the string does not move either up or down a bit in the process of clearing the claw as with a conventional crossbow claw. The 350's and 380's string is released instantly and straight away from the opposing/opening claws. How that will affect center serving wear....I don't know:-) It should be great for accuracy consistency.

    Most new crossbow designs have some string/cable problems initially but they typically get ironed out quickly. The new Stryker crossbows' strings and cables are very nice looking but shooting will tell the story.

    If my memory is correct, the new Winchester bows will have the same design. In theory, this design should improve many aspects. As you stated, time will be the test.

    And people are talking about how nice their triggers are too. I didn't know they are doing the double claw concept too. Might be trendsetters:-) How about that.....coming on $549 and $749 crossbows (SZ's)

    I've used Viper X on my GT Mag (sold) and on my current Turbo XLT.
