I have not used them but I respond to your question because of the strings I do use. I heard many string/cable builders say they use "only" prestretched strings/cables.  I don't doubt that but I have only found one maker's strings/cables that haven't stretched in five yrs of use. They are from Zebra/Barracuda. The reason being they reverse twist their strands. This helps prevent the normal left or right twist string/cable sets from untwisting over time. Just a off beat way of saying stretch. Cause even so called prestretched strings/cables are gonna give some over time. With the reverse twist you have right twist strands turned in with left twist strands so the counter each other. I've used them and recommended them to customers and they have proven to be the best. In my opinion. Good luck in your search and good shootin/huntin!!

Brandon mentioned Baracuda once. I'll take a look at them.
 
Thanks Sarge.

Check around for online reviews. Sometimes they're more helpful that the web site. The main thing is to have confidence in what you use. Good Luck!!

If thats the one that Brandon hooked me up with for writing the bow hunting article they never came through with the strings they were supposed to send. I suggest you go back to the bow manufacturer for the string.

I have heard great things about Vapor Trail strings Skylar.  I'm hoping to upgrade to them before the new season in the fall.

Link for the strings doesn't work.
 
I was wanting it in FLo green and Black.
 
Wish my accupin was in orange. Then I would do SWFA colors.

They may can do custom.  I had these on my Pantera Magnum and Alien Z and both held up great, no rotation and no issues. - http://www.americasbestbowstrings.com/index.htm I used the premium on the magnum and the rhino (buget on the Z)

G, got the strings and cables working, now just have to get the bow done.
 
I was debating on dipping it, but now, I cannot find a pattern.
 
Do you know anyone who dips or paints them?

Not right off hand.  Call a good auto painter and he'll probably know an airbrusher and you can get him to do some custom work, clear it after and you'll have something truly unique!

That's a great idea, but I'm sure it may be more expensive.
 
I know one guy who does some great work, but...i'll let the pictures explain for me.
 
 
 
My personal favorite.

That's one heck of a nice looking bike.  I can only imagine what he can do to a bow.  As for strings my buddies and I have found the best compound bow strings from 60X.  Always very helpful on the phone and quick shipping.
