452X has been around a long time, every other material than has come or gone is compared to 452X, and in most cases 452X is still comes out on top, it is superior in its stability ( because of the 33% Vectran ) over BCY-X and Fury, and the speckled colours of 452X are also the fastest by far even over Fury, but allot more stable in the Aussie summer. 452X is quite also and its ware rate (fuzzing) is very good also, it is KBS's replacement main material since BCY discontinued BCY-X.
(67% SK75 Dyneema, 33% Vectran)
Fury is very similar to BCY ‘X’ but it faster (3-6fps depending on colour) and a fraction quieter, and almost as stable as BCY ‘X’, and produces and very round and very glossy finished string, I use it on my 80+lb bows and this material is my choice as it has performed flawlessly, but BCY 'X' can have a slightly better ware rate (fuzzing).
( 100% UHMWPE )
'X" material is blend on 452X and 8190 and has all the great qualities on 8190 but more stable, it produces a quite round and smooth finish, like 8190 but allot more stable by far, and has a low fuzz rate, a little better than Fury in most cases.
It is the most popular material that is why I don’t carry 452X or Trophy or 8190, 8125G 0r Rhino anymore, and I have a large amount of colours the chose from..
Also can be use in the 18-20 strands for modern Recurve's with reinforced tips for higher speed and stability.
( 83% SK90 Dyneema - 17% Vectran - Patented Construction )

B50 is the main material used for older Recurve's, Long Bows and Early compounds with metal cables with teardrop connections, i.e. Teardrop strings.
( 100% polyester similar to Dacron )
Fast Flight +
FF+ is another older material that is used with modern Recurves that produces significantly higher speeds, but your Recurve or Longbow must have reinforced tips to use this material.
( PolyEthelyne (HMPE )
Note: with Cam Serving light colours of 0.14" Halo (Fluro Green, Fluro Orange, Fluro Yellow, Electric Blue, all suffer the most) when serving over darker colors the darker colour will show through, because of the high pressure I serv at its imposable to stop, in all cases the serving will darken and change colour and in some cases have a muddy look or change of colour.
I recommend either a darker serving colour or clear serving to combat this cosmetic issue.
