60x makes great threads at a great price and they ship quickly.

Gas Bowstrings are pricey, but they last twice as long as most others. Just changed my first set after three years of regular shooting.

I've got GAS on my bow right now, and I'm impressed with them, but I've had good luck with 60X previously, as well. Just put a new set of 60X on my crossbow, as a matter of fact, and they were spot on.

I finally replaced my factory vapor trail strings and cables on my 07 Synergy with JBK Bowstrings. Absolutely pleased with the customer service and quality of bowstring he builds. Top notch string builder, 2 year warranty, great price and an awesome looking, feeling and shooting string. Went with Rampage material over 452x and it is smooth as glass.

Just got a new set from JBK using the new 454 material. Got the bow tuned up perfectly and shot around 5 or 600 shots so far. I'm very impressed. I've shot tons of different customs. So far this is my favorite. We shall see what happens over time. But I will not hesitate to reccomend JBK. Great customer service!

My local archery shop uses Threadz and they seem to be very happy with them so far.
