Twisted X is good quality, I have two bows and always purchase my sets well before needed. Normally purchase them a year or so before needed so I always have a new set on hand for either bow, for emergency or so I do not have to wait when needed. Just put a set of twisted X on my halon I bought a year or so ago, and first attempt on a Mathews 5-piece set, yokes and all, specs were dead on, ATA, brace. etc. Shot it a few dozen times set the peep, and was perfect the first time, just got lucky there, but hasn't moved, since.

My last few sets have been Twisted X which all have been flawless. I hear a lot of talk of Catfish Customs, so did pick up a set to try for my other bow, but these will not be installed to next Season, with the exception if needed before hand?

So eventually I'll be able to compare Catfish to Twisted X, but as of now cannot comment on Catfish yet, but as stated I know Twisted X are top quality sets.

Loveland, CO. was AZ.
Went with GAS Ghost XV replacement on my Mathews Halon 32 about 1.5 years back. No problems. Also, swapped out strings on spouse’s Mathews SDX with same as mentioned a year back. She is happy thus far..

Gas is the only thing that I have found so far that's serving does not separate after tying nock sets in and replacing D-loops. If I was going to try something new I would give Mad Goat, or Catfish a shot.

Hey guys. I need to get a new string for my Hoyt helix ultra and was wondering what your opinions on the best after market strings. The bow shop near me only gets Hoyt factory strings but I’m interested in getting an aftermarket. Lmk what your guys thoughts are
60x is the way to go!

I’ve never had issues that it seems everyone else has had with zebras or gas strings

another vote for mike at catfish, good guy and willing to help you out not just get you off the phone. I started making my own but if I get lazy I'll be calling him, plus he has always been cheaper than everyone else though I haven't checked in a while.
