    No contest. That is like comparing a Yugo to a Jaguar.

    And I shoot Vapor Trail.

    Of the 2 mentioned winners choice is the clear winner. There are others out there just as good.

    Zebra stretch like crazy...... I use to shoot them and will never shoot it again, don't know about the new ones but I think it's about the same cause my bud shoots a mathew w/ zebra string and his string stretch on him after about every 100-200 shots. After a couple of twisting and turning he burn the string and got VT.

    Winners choice is a great string but very pricey and sometimes it take forever to get the string and cable you order. Customer service is great though.

    Between the 2 mention, WC knock out zebra in the first round.

    I shoot VT..... and loves it.

    Zebra Strings do not even come close to comparing to the Winner's Choice brand. Without a doubt, put the Winner's choice on your bow!

    If you buy a Zebra it will still be stretching in 2010! Go with the WC, you will be glad you spent the extra money!

    If those are your only choices, go with WC. If you are open to other options, check out Bucknasty or Carters Archery.
    Keep smiling… It makes people wonder what you’ve been up to.

    not fair

    it's not a fair comparison, zebras are cheap and made for the guys who come into a pro shop the night before deer season when they get their bow out and say, "dang a mouse must have chewed it up in the attic this summer..."
    winners choice are custom strings that are more expensive and perform for people who tend to be a bit more serious about their archery intentions.

    I lost 5fps switching to Winners choice. On top of that, I am down 5fps shooting no peep tubing or aligner on the winners choice vs peep tubing and aligner on the zebra.

    I was a little dissapointed as everyone said get rid of the tubing it is slowing you down. I did and it turns out the WC is slower without tubing than Zebra with.

    (Yes the bow is in spec and timed etc...)

    Question Speed???

    There is no way you should have lost speed with Winners Choice strings - is your bow in spec??? Was it in spec before the Winners Choice??

    Not that I don't believe you, but it just doesn't make sense!! WC in 8125 material, usually, and I use that term loosely, picks up a few fps.

    How's it shooting???

    That is very odd, I gained about 5 fps and the bow was quieter.

    I was expecting to gain FPS as I removed the peep tubing and aligner when I switched. I was shocked when I saw the results.

    Your Zebra string had stretched to the point it was lengthening your draw and allowing the cams to rotate farther around. This also increases your draw weight. I've had the same thing happen on 2 different bows.

    I've heard of some guys loosing poundage as well. The problem lied in the fact that the WC was slightly smaller in diamiter than the Zebra. ( Hey! I'm just repeating what I read somewhere)

    My Zebra has never streched but I'm really disappointed in serving on it. It seems to seperate very easily. Guess it isn't wound on tight enough. Got my new BuckNasty string and cable and will be trying it out as soon as the weather breaks. Actually, I hope my bow does loose a few pounds. Should have got 60# limbs instead of 70#

    If your cable stretches then you will loose weight.
