In this thread I would like to gather some info and experiences about the BCY 8190 and 452X in comparison.
In the near future I would like to restart, making my own strings, like I did 15 years ago with good results. I would truly appreciate any valuable info from archers and string makers.
The speed, so nice it might be, is not my first goal. There is not much speed to gain anyway dúe to simple limits and laws of physics.
Since I have to travel (mostly overseas) for bowhunting and I want to elimante everything which can ruin my hunt, RELIABILITY is what counts for me.
I would be interested in answers for questions like:
- which one stays steadier when the climate conditions suddenly are totally different (temperature, humidity)
- on which one the serving tends to separate more or less
- is there one of them asking for a special serving material
- which one offers a better protection against getting fuzzy
Any further information over a significant difference will be appreciated, too.
Thanks in advance
