    New string material from Brownell

    I have been shooting this material for about two weeks now. I'm impressed with it thus far. For starters, zero peep rotation. I have never had rotation from a string Tom has made for me, so that is nothing new.

    I haven't chronographed it yet, and I doubt I will. I want a stable string, speed is irrelevant. But, from what I have seen from some test numbers, this stuff is consistently 3-5 fps faster than Astro.

    The biggest difference I have noticed from XS2 is how quiet it is. My Vantage Elite is now quieter than my Maxxis 35. This material is whisper quiet. I've never had what I would consider to be a really quiet bow, probably because I shoot 31.5" draw length. This material has changed that. XS2 feels very solid on the bow. Very tight, snappy on the shot, but still a soft and quiet shot.

    I haven't had a chance to shoot it as much as I like due to being sick, but I like what I am seeing out of it thus far. I will try to get some pics up and document the wear of the material from week to week with pictures and an estimated shot count. I judge string material by feel and stability and I am pretty unbiased when it comes to manufacturer. I don't care who makes it, if it isn't performing to my expectations, I'll replace it.

    All in all, I think it is a better material than Astro, Excel/452X. I think people will find a noticeable difference in the feel/sound of the bow. I don't think Brownell or BCY would introduce anything that didn't outperform their current offerings. I've had success with Astro/Excel/452X, and I'm expecting this to outperform them all.

    Picked this off the other forum, looks very promising.

    Look forward to some pics. Videos with sound in some kind of comparison would even be nicer! :)

    I talked to John about it for my MR7. He is going to evaluate it first but has heard some good things about it. Also heard it could be a little fuzzy??

    Proline has been testing it extensively along with 6 or 7 other string makers...the link below will take you through there findings. Proline (Joe) definitely has the most in depth run down of it right now. It was actually a good find because I wanted to read more about the string material and I just about never read any topics over there.
