    I’ve never tried WC…..but the VT’s I’ve tried are :thumbup so I don’t see a need to spend more money when I don’t need to.

    I had Vapor Trails on my Hoyt’s, excellent service, and lightning fast shipping.

    Lots of very good string makers about and cheaper than both the companies you mention.

    However of the 2 on the list I would spend my money with VT :thumbup

    Of the 2, I’ve only had WC on my bows. I do love my set but they are more expensive. I think the only complaint I’ve heard about them was about the price. Now VT strings/cables, I’ve heard great things about them too……..and only a very few people complaining about the serving (like a couple only) which all have had the problem taken care of immediately by the company.

    So, I know that I’m going to try VT strings/cables real soon (My current WC set on my XT is 16mo old now [=}=] )

    I’ve got both/both are excellent,

    but the Vapor Trails are less expensive and will be on your doorstep in 2 to 3 days with your choice of color. :thumbup

    I’ve shot both, only because Vapor Trail came on a Bow that I tried a couple of years ago. It had the Hybrid Cam system, which I knew very little about, and I couldn’t keep the cams in scink because of String and/or Cable creep.

    I use nothing but Winner’s Choice now. One less thing to worry about whether you’re shooting for the Gold, X-Ring or Hunting Trophy. [=}=]

    Does Vapor Trail come with a One Year Warranty that it will not creep or ever have any serving separation :?:
    Winner’s Choice does. =D/>” title=”Applause” /><br />

    Vapor Trail, Ive only had one separate a little, pushed it up and Liqui-Loc’d it. The materials are the same the blends are different. The VT is a “tougher” string when its finished. Ive waxed both of mine 3 or 4 times. They never fuzz. Oh and no twist or creep after about 10-15 shots.

    Why spend twice the money on something that doesnt last any longer and uses a smaller serving that slows your bow and screws up your letoff.(The real reason WC doesnt have any separation issues besides gluing it.)
