I dont care who is using it. After the stuff has been on the market for 2-3 years and has developed a reputation like 452, ExCel and 8125 , TS-1 has earned over several years. AstroFlight is fast, soft but fuzzes much faster then 8125, so all it is now is H.Y.P.E.

Thanks for the opinion wide load...not really what I was asking but ok, hey I'll tell you what...if its ok with you? I'll give the new XS2 a whirl and maybe even send you a report so you can chalk it up to more "hype"

You will notice that BCY states "The lowest creep EVER in 100% Dyneema" They do not say that this is a more stable string material when compared to a blend Dyneema/Vectran material such as 452X, Trophy or Brownell Xcell.
BCY 100% Dyneema products in the past have been less stable than the enhanced Brownell versions from what I have seen. My knowledge is very limited however as I am only a hobby string builder so it would be nice to hear from some of the pros.

Yes Im skeptical of new stuff coming out, because there is so much smoke blown by archery manufacturers and marketers. Im glad there are guys trying it and being the lab rats and a can stick to the tried and true for the next couple of years and see where the rep for the new stuff goes.
