The Switchback is an awesome bow. I shot my buddy's several times. However,his string stretched already and his peep has rotated.I don't think the new Barracuda string is much better than the original Zebra.
For this,reason I upgraded the string and bus cable on my Outback to a Winner's Choice.I switch all my bows over to WC strings and have no problems with them.
Great bow-good luck with it!!

I dont think youll have a problem with peep twist, but when its time for a new string I would go with winners choice. I would also shoot a loop, they help with peep alignment& serving wear. I think there more accurate than shooting off of the string.

question guys...how long does it take for the string to settle so there is no more peep rotation? I just got a new hoyt and it hasnt really stretched....ive shot about 150 arrows so far...also does the cold air have an effect on the string in terms of peep rotation?...when i shoot outside in the cold whether my peep tends to rotate but when I have been shooting inside the peep stays right where it should

Bowhuntercop, check out the bowtech's also. I shot one a couple of days ago real real sweet bow. very smooth and fast. The bow was pushing 283 fps with a 28" draw at 60lbs.
