    I won’t own a bow that doesn’t have VaporTrail strings and when I buy a new bow I won’t shoot it until it gets a VaporTrail on it.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5


    We have been shooting the VTX strings for years they are the best strings we have ever shot. No peep rotation or String stretch. Great customer service!!!

    Put a set of the VTX on my #D bow earlier this year and they seemed to do great all through the season. Ordered a set for my sons bow on a Tuesday and they were in my mailbox on Thursday! Great product and durability and super fast delivery.

    I needed to replace my string and was having trouble finding a good string. On a recommendation of a pro shooter I decided to purchase a VaporTrail string for my target bow. The new string was the exact length and the color that I wanted. On other strings I have always had that shoot-in period, not true with VaporTrail strings. I have more than 1,000 shots in that string and cable set and have yet to move my peep from the original setting. I have put VaporTrail strings on all of my bows.

    The VTX material is a great material. Very stable in any temp, rock solid, creep free, and very durable. I have been shooting VaporTrail strings for a decade or more with no issues in the above mentioned. Great strings!!

    You will not find a better string out there. No creep, no peep rotation, and the best for your money.

    I have traveled all over the country and over seas. I know that whatever the weather conditions that I’m faced with, VTX will not let me down. I will always have Vaportrail Strings and Cables on all of my bows.

    I have shot all the big name strings and cables and none of them have ever even come close to comparing to my vtx threads. The attention to detail on them is just top notch. Ricky is the string master. Shipping time is also the best in the business hands down.

    Best strings I’ve come across, true to spec and the most accommodating customer service out there. The VTX material is strong and faster than stock. Will never shoot another brand again.

    I have shot a lot of different strings and cables but the best one for me is the VTX from VAPORTRAIL. It’s the best for your money no peep rotation.

    I have Vaportrail (VTX) strings and cables on all 5 of my bows and they have performed great. No peep rotation, no creep and they settle in after just a few shots. Love the new speed buttons and that they are available in colors. The prices on the strings/cables are also great…this is the best bang for the buck you will find on a product that is better than others costing a lot more. Also for the dealers out there…I got 3 sets of strings and cables in 2 days, shipped USPS for about 5 bucks…as opposed to Company B (no longer use them) that shipped our sets separately with UPS as only the option for around 12-15 bucks. Its nice to see a company that uses some common sense with regard to shipping.

    Need a set of QUALITY strings fast?? Once fitted these strings do not budge, zero peep rotation and great durability add to this a 3 day turnaround unbelievable service.
    Give yourself a treat and ditch your stock strings, VTX is the way to go

    These strings are the best I have used, after I install them I give them about 50 shots to settle in and then set my peep and they stay rock solid, no stretching, very impressed with the quality. awsome color selector also.

    Just wanted to say thanks for my new string and cable set. Haven’t got them on my bow yet, but they look great and were the exact measurement and colors I ordered. Super fast turn around too. I ordered Monday afternoon and got them in the mail this morning, Thursday. This is my first set of VaporTrails, but won’t be my last…….as long as they shoot as good as they look. Lol! I’m sure they’ll live up to their reputation!

    Just took out my new set of VTX on my RPM360. The strings look amazing! I put them out on the range today, and I robin hooded an arrow. I also robin hooded an arrow with the factory strings… The difference was the penetration. The same bow, same arrows, same distance, same setup. The VTX robin hood penetrated over 6″ deeper into the other arrow than it did with stock strings. It looks, feels and sounds like I picked up some fps with these strings.

    The other thing to mention is the consistent performance. I put about 50-60 arrows down range today; I didn’t have to adjust or twist my peep once. Zero rotation.

    I agree with these other reviews. I will ONLY use Vaportrail strings on my bows. I have VTX on both my bows now and I couldn’t be happier.

    I just wanted to say how impressed I am with your customer service! I work as an archery tech at a major retailer and I have almost daily dealings with your company. However, this is the first time I have ever ordered something personally. I could not be happier with the speed of which you completed my order. Also, I am extremely happy with the updates I received upon the string being completed, shipped..etc. Thanks once again for the great customer service. I will always recommend VaporTrail to my customers!

    Couldn’t be happier with the strings and the speed of Vapor Trail’s customer service! Ordered on Monday, had them on my bow and shooting by Thursday! After a few dozen shots, I haven’t noticed any sight movement, and the archery tech said these are the only strings he uses. From now on I’ll be using Vapor Trail strings on my bows and recommending them to everyone I know!

    I’ve put several vtx string sets on several bows and all sets have been consistantly excellent. the service is first class. and the price is very fair. I’ve used bcy x and 8190 and I can honestly say that vtx compares to the best of them. however, I trust and feel confident shooting vaportrail”s vtx. it just seems better.

    I operate a small Archery Business with the only strings going out the door being Vapor Trail Strings. Being a small business I can’t afford a single mistake in a Customer’s String order. Vapor Trail has always come through flawless! No stretch or rotation = my work work going into a customer’s hand perfect EVERY TIME!

    Been using ONLY Vaportrail strings and cables since 2008 and have never had a issue. They have the best customer service in the business! For some one to say their strings are bad is totally ignorant or never contacted them form help. The strings and products are the best! you still have to have the ability to install them on your bow correctly. 😉

    Best strings I have ever shot. I will never shoot anything but VTX on my bows from now on. Excellent customer service also. I had a small hiccup with my order that was my own fault and Ashley fixed it for me right away with one phone call. Did I mention that I ordered them from GA on a Friday and had them that Monday? Now that is speedy service…

    I used to own a 2014 Bowtech Carbon Knight and when my factory strings were having problems I decided to order a set of VaporTrail strings & cables. While I had them on the bow, they had superior performance. I noticed faster arrow speeds, quieter sound, and way closer groupings. However, my servings were getting cut by the cam serving holder whenever I shot, which left my bow unusable. When I called customer service, I was told that since the bow was causing the problems I could send my string set back for a new or repaired set at a discount. Turns out when I called back when I was ready to send my string set over (this is why I gave 3 instead of 5 stars), customer service turned their backs on me and said, “How is this our problem? If Bowtech isn’t able to cover or compensate you there is nothing we can do for you” (It’s against Bowtech’s rules to send money for an aftermarket issue). Even when I mentioned the discount, they said they were unwilling to apply that anymore. Needless to say, I was left with $100 wasted and a defective string set because of that, as well as a story of unsatisfying customer service to share. This incident is literally the only thing stopping me now from buying VaporTrail for my new Diamond Deploy SB. Let this be a caution to any potential customers reading here. If VaporTrail is reading this, I really hope you can find it in you to ensure me that I will not be left in the dark again. Thank you for reading.

    TLDR: bought string set about one year ago, had servings cutting on cam, Vaportrail initially offered me a discounted price on repair or replacements and pulled out the last minute post-string removal.

      That would not be typical of our customer service. I (Rick Brule) handle a majority of the customer service inquiries with bowstrings and I can assure you that is not how our policy works. According to my records, you ordered March 30, 2015. Had you requested warranty services within a year of original purchase we would have repaired or replaced the damaged piece at no charge to you. If it was after that year, we would have repaired or replaced the damaged piece for a small fee depending on said damage. Either way, we would have gotten you fixed up. That is our Lifetime Service Guarantee. Can you tell me who it was that you spoke to? My apologies for your frustration, however, I personally don’t know anyone here at Vapor Trail that would talk to one of our customers that way. We have a great track record for having exceptional customer service. If you have any other questions or concerns please contact me at our office at (763) 862-8870.

    Well a lot of good reviews on VT strings. And here is mine It’s been 5-6 years since I put new VTs on my compound. the last time I put them on I shot them for 2-3 years . I went all traditional after that for 3 years and didn’t shoot my compound. It just sat in in the case. One or twice a year I would pull it out shoot maybe five shots wax the string and then put it away with no intentions of returning to the compound.
    Well after a few bad winters and lack of opportunities with my trad gear. I decided to resurrect my compound to increase my chances to put some venison in the freezer. I pulled my bow out almost afraid to shoot it due to old strings and thinking it would be way out of tune. And you know what? The damn thing was dead on from when I put it away 5-6 yrs. ago even the peep was in perfect position and it shot great! Well not knowing if I was shooting a time bomber not . I ordered a new set of custom string on Sunday night and they were here on Wednesday. That’s fast!! Thank you my fellow Minnesotans from VTS. Awsome company!

    I ordered some purple strings with fluorescent green servings, but it turned out more of a forest green rather than the fluorescent. i think the darker color string shows through the serving.

    • vaportrail14


      The fluorescent serving colors become somewhat transparent when applied to the string so they sort of mix like paint. Unfortunately, the website is unable to display that color change.

    I cant get the customizer tool to work, ive tried it on explorer and fire fox. It wont allow me to select a string material and therefore I cant move on to the colors section. Is there something I’m missing?

    • vaportrail14

      Did you complete Step One first? You have to select the bow type etc. before you can move on to step 2, selecting material type. We are going to be changing that in our next update.

    For the past 5 years, all the bows in my house have had Vapor Trail strings on them. This is for one reason, THEY WORK. My son’s bows take a beating and we shoot a lot of arrows during the summer in the Southwestern United States. No stretch, no peep rotation, no issues. Worth every dollar spent.

    These are the best set of strings I have ever put on my Hoyt alphamax 32! I used to use winners choice and 60x Custom Strings but these strings hold up much better. Ohhhh and the customer support is fantastic here! Highly recommended!

    I ordered a set of strings and cables that I had high expectations for. Unfortunately my expectations were not meet, they were blown out of the water. That was the fastest turn around time I have ever herd of. The fact that everything was set up perfect out of the bag was amazing. I will be posting a ton of pictures of my strings. I went shooting the day I had them installed. Took about 6 shots and my peep stopped rotating. That amazed me. They shipped the day after I ordered them also which is crazy fast. I don’t thing I could of been happier with anything about these. Fantastic job Vaportrail. Cant wait to tell everyone I know to quit their crying.

    Vaportrail SUCKS!! I’m sure they will delete this review but I’m saying it anyway! I’ve had my string and cables for maybe 6 mo the now,, the string is freying already,, and zero peep rotation my ass! I’ve had nothing but pure hell out of my peep sight! The more I shoot the worse it gets! I’ve had it worked on at 2 different pro shops and they can’t get my peep to stop rotating! I’m missing bow season right now waiting on a new string and cables from Hoyt! Vaportrail! What a joke! Worst money I ever spent!! And yes I’m crying, because of your junk, I’m not able to hunt right now!! Thanks vapor trail, for being of poor quality! I’ll be sure and tell all my friends!

    • vaportrail14


      Did you contact us with your issues?? I don’t see any correspondence with you so I’m assuming not? I also see that this wasn’t ordered from Vapor Trail, so can you let us know where you ordered them from? Often times fraying has something to do with peep installation, rubbing against clothing, contact with something your bow case, etc. The VTX material has proven itself over the last 12 years and fraying is never an issue as a result from the material itself. We offer an unconditional 1-year warranty and lifetime service guarantee, so if you would have contacted us immediately, we would obviously have worked to help correct your apparent issues and you would have been back up and running months ago. Give us a call if you’d like so we can get you fixed up, Thanks!

    Amazing Craftsmanship! I just ordered a VTX set and can’t believe how nice they came out. Servings are in the exact spots. I put a hundred shots or so through the strings, and NO peep rotation – NADA! The VTX strings and craftsmanship are definitely a much higher quality that the stock set. Also, my bow is way quieter with the VTX strings. Well done Vapor Trail!

    String looks great but after a few hundred arrows the serving is separating on my lower Cam. I have had trouble with my peep spinning and have to keep redoing my loop to straighten it out. I will have to replace this string after I get through winter league… only 7 months old.

    I have noticed my grouping has improved and the bow is a little faster. I am worried about the durability of these strings after reading the reviews and my own personal experience.

      Give me a call at the shop when you get a chance. 763-862-8870. We have a Lifetime Service Guarantee on your string set. What that means is we will replace or repair the set at no charge for up to one year from the original receipt. After that, we will repair any damaged or faulty piece for the life of the string or cable. ~Rick

    Have been shooting VTX material for 4 years on both my hunting and target bows. I used to have to change my strings every 9-10 months due to how much I shoot. Thanks to Vapor Trail this went up to 18 months. Unbelieve quality and no peep rotation on any bow I’ve ever put them on.

    I have to say that in 4 years of using these strings, i only have issues when i untwist the strings. Both string and Y cable. i just put a new set on my sons bow and rock sold for sure. I am going to order a new set for my bow as soon as i get done with this. I am tuning mt own bows and making mistakes along the way for sure has led to the issues that I am seeing. These string sets are rock solid. we have to pay for our mistakes!!!

    I’ve been using VT since their very early days and the performance and customer service has always been steller. When I was a novice i improperly installed a string and had issues. I immediatley blamed VT, I gave them a call and 3 days later I had new strings in my hand. After some research and thought I realized the issue was my fault. I called VT and told them it was my fault and I needed to pay for the replacement string and they said “no way it’s on us”. I’ve bought many strings for many different bows since then and they have all worked flawlessly, I am a VT customer for life.

    Thank You Vapor Trail!
    It was nothing but a positive experience dealing with Vapor Trail for a custom String order that ended with me being happier than a Clam!
    Anymore It seems as if there isn’t any customer service to be found anywhere but this is not so with Vapor Trail. Vapor Trail gets an A+ from me all across the board!
    String & Cables fit like a glove, are beautiful, perfect craftsmanship and top notch order fulfillment turnaround time which equals what we all want when we are so anxiously waiting for something ordered.
    I highly recommend Vapor Trail especially when it comes to custom strings & Cables!

    Ordered new strings and cables for my 12 yr old bow, to replace the original strings and cable. They fit great even changed my peep to one without the rubber band, been shooting it for about three weeks. No issues AT ALL with peep rotation or with the string and cable, I tell everyone now if you need new strings for your bow go Vapor Trail all the way you won’t be let down with these. GREAT PRODUCT keep up the great work….

    I have had vtx string and cables on my last 4 bows. All have been extremely well built! Although the last set I just recently received and had put on my vertix are having issues. I’m getting about 35 degrees of rotation on my peep. Which is unfortunate cause every set before this has been flawless. Hopefully customer service can assist me with the issue!

      Your string qualifies for warranty so we’re going to send you a new string bud. There will be a postage paid envelope enclosed for you to return the faulty string.

      Our apologies for any inconvenience. Thank you!

    I put a new set of strings on my bow every year. Last years were flawless, kudos. I did have the bottom yoke served where my shirt rubbed the string and was getting fuzzies. Again, not a bad reflection on your strings. And your service was top notch. This brings us to this years string set. Ordered a set, with my off the wall special requests, the strings arrived. the serving on the bottom cam broke, had it reserved. Serving broke under the cable guide idler wheel, had that reserved. Last Saturday had a spare string, yes I bought spares last year, Today the other serving under the other idler wheel broke. Obviously you changed your serving material or my shop specified the wrong string, IDK. I did expect a little bit more quality due my past experiences with you and your product.

    I recently had to order a set of VaporTrail VTX strings and cables for my BowTech Assassin due to unforseen circumstances and everything about the process impressed me. I ordered the strings on September 11th at 9:40 AM and received an email at 11:23 AM that they were in the mail. I received them on September 13th. Granted, I live in Wisconsin and these are made in Minnesota, but that is still impressive! I had them installed and the timing and specs on my bow were perfect. My 70# bow was at 72#. After shooting about 50 arrows to settle everything (I know you’re not supposed to have to shoot these in a bunch, but I hate peep rotation and wanted to be sure) and tying in my peep, I only had to make a couple of very minor rest and sight adjustments and my bow was shooting darts. So far I have about 400 arrows on the new strings. My peep and D-loop have not budged and my bow is shooting great. VaporTrail has a new customer. Thanks for making a great product and backing it with great service! I will be back when I need new strings and cables again…

      Happy to hear your bow is shooting well. Thank you for the feedback and good luck this season!
