I just got the Gas ghost xv but I haven't got a chance to install them yet.
I do like to support Michigan business when I can. Especially with our lovely governor making it hard for small businesses to stay afloat latelyI’ve been really happy with the X99 sets I’ve had built lately. I would highly recommend Catfish Customs right there in your home state of MI.
Out of curiosity what if you did wax it? Is it gonna hurt anything?I'd checkout VEC99 by Bloodline Fibers. If you're shooting in cold and hot weather the vectran will keep things very stable. It's so nice because you do not have to wax their materials. I wont build with anything else.
Same here.. I ordered a set from Mike a couple weeks ago and another last week. Even through the holiday shipping madness, I had then each within a week. They look incredible and were exactly to spec. First set was x99 and second I went with vec99Just ordered a set for my realm from Mike at Catfish Customs. Had them to my door in 7 days and they were on the money as usual. He does great work and also offers the Vec99 although I had these done in X99.
I haven't tried a set of vec99 strings yet. What do you think of them?Same here.. I ordered a set from Mike a couple weeks ago and another last week.

That was the second set ,which I just got today. Haven't got the bow together yet.I haven't tried a set of vec99 strings yet. What do you think of them?
I have used Threadz a couple times and been happy with them both times. They do have the added advantage of getting them shipped the day after you order as well.I hear tons about Catfish Custom strings but never tried them. Been a fan of Threadz Custom Bowstrings and have always been happy. Customer service is top notch and strings take a beating. I shoot almost, if not, every day, and long sessions. With the exception of one set of strings, which they replaced free of charge without me asking, they are rock solid. The main reason, besides making excellent strings, that I've not tried other brands is customer service. I called and was ordering strings for a Hoyt Prevail 37 SVX. I told Jerry that I was looking for a different material because my last set wore out really fast and were fuzzy really bad. She asked me when I bought them and looked up my previous order. With as many sets as I've bought over the years I figured one set wearing quick wasn't that big a deal. She asked me a few questions and I answered and they replaced strings free of charge. I wasn't asking for that and sure didn't expect it. So, I'm pretty loyal to Threadz. Take care of me (without asking) and I will gladly return the favor.
I suggest Threadz Custom Bowstrings personally, and I've used others over the years with good results, but Threadz is as close to dealing with friends or family as I've ever experienced from any company I've dealt with. If Threadz didn't exist, I would most likely deal with Catfish Customs as way too many on ArcheryTalk really speak highly of them.

I have a brand new set of Catfish Custom strings in X99 that are waiting to go on my 19 Elite Ritual 35. At present I have a set of vec99 Bloodline strings that Mike made up to test the material and I am so-so about the qualities. My 17 OB Phoenix XL has X99 and they are great, so once I finish fine tuning the R35 with a bit more shimming, the new ones are going on. The colors of X99 are very vivid and clean, plus they plain shoot.I’ve been really happy with the X99 sets I’ve had built lately.
