    I wonder if the changed the SK75 dyneema component in the dyneema/vectran 452X blend to the SK90 dyneema used in 8190 or something?

    Isn't 452X already a blended string material? Now they added an extra material the 8190? How is it any better than just 452X? That already is pretty good itself.
    Everyone is gifted. Some open the package sooner.

    In the event this post was worthless. Be happy I bumped up yours.

    I quess BCY forgot to mention this new product when I talked to them in Darrington. I told the owner that I was using 8190 from a spool that I won from them at Redding. I went on to say that it has been holding it's length real well in the 115 degree plus temperatures in AZ and that I liked it better than the 452X I had been using.

    He stated that he was glad to hear that as he would have reccomended the 452X for the high heat. Since this was only a few weeks ago I would think that he might have said something to me about the new material as I would have been interested.

    I recently picked up some 8190 threads from 60X for my shoot-thru Martin Slayer. I wanted something that didn't fray as easy as 452X since the cables cross and rub each other. They work great, and I haven't noticed any stretch or peep movement thus far after about 400-500 shots. The bow was ridiculously easy to tune and is shooting darts... I just wish the grip on it didn't suck so bad. I've only lightly waxed the strings ONCE. I'm totally impressed.

    Can't wait to see what this BCY-X is all about.

    Can't wait to try some out

    Hopefully no gore! Thats what i don't like about trophy and 8190. A 452x type with lower vectran and higher grade Dyneema should be awesome. Hopefully less greasy wax too. I will try it.

    Also i wonder why they suggest 24 strands and 452x they say 20-24. Maybe its smaller strand size like Xcel.

    because depending on poundage you can use that range of strand count, the 452x is so strong. ask Whack N stack how many strands he has on his Xroid 100+ # bow......
