    The cost differential between WC and VT is not 2x. A set of VTs run about $65 and my dealer charges $85 for a stock set of WC … Lancaster Archery Supply charges $90.

    I have WC on my Drenalin and my Prestige. Neither have lost max poundage or changed letoff from the Mathews OEM string set, as measured with my dealer’s Easton Mapper. The issue of WC loosing poundage and changing letoff is debatable, some have experienced this, many have not [/u:3rog185o] [=}=]

    As Preacher mentioned … WC has a one-year warranty :thumbup
    Mathews strings have a 30 day warranty, which I found out about at the 45-day point [-(
    VT has a 30 day warranty

    WC serves all end loops. I consider served end loops on string and cable as a mark of a well-built, custom string. JMHO [=}=]

    If the question was, “Which string set should I buy”, I’d say go with the best you can afford. But, since you asked, “Which set of strings and cables do you prefer”, I’d say your list is too exclusive.

    Stone Mountain Dakota strings are highly thought of, but rarely mentioned on AT or Mathews forums. They, like WC, are pricey. I’d rank them with WC ahead of VT.

    Carter’s Archery makes exceptional strings/cables. Many will send their bows into Mike Carter to get them Crackerized. I’d put Carter custom strings on a par with WC guaging by the 100% positive comments, testimonials to exceptional customer service, although I have not used them. I’d rank them with WC ahead of VT. They like WC are pricey.

    There are probably 25 or 30 good string makers in the market place…

    Of the two in your original question it’s a matter of preference… both make a good string each has their own idiosyncrasies…
