I can tell you it is stable I just stretched 24 strands of it at 335lbs for 12 hours and it didn't budge.(done after initial stretch)(garage temp went from 78 to 56 during the duration) Also with the diameter being thinner it produces a rounder bundle and I am able to get the tag ends super tight.JMO
I don't see any kind of negative with the 8190 from what I've read. I'm sure not savy when it comes to strings. If they don't stretch and fray , that's good enough for me.
String material is just like anything else. Better technology breeds better products , plain and simle.
Is this material the next step in innovation? Maybe/probably.
It's time to move on.

Arizona is hotter than it is here, it's just the humidity that makes it so hot here. I can handle 110 DRY all day it's the 100 degree heat with 90% humidity that will kick your butt.
Either way it's hot and the material will get to see plenty of that action this year!
Me either only been building my own for like 8 weeks.lol Of course since Ben was kind enough to write out his entire process for me, I learned a ton in short order.(Thanks Ben!!) Just like he stated I will develop my own process which I have done. String building is almost as fascinating as arrow building it kicked my OCD into overdrive. I will try to post some pics, I have 24 strands of 8190 for the string, and 24 strands of 452x for the cables on my bow right now. As for the vivid color thing people talk about I surely can't see it using sunset orange. The benefits I see are like I stated prior rounder, smoother bundle, smaller diameter, and a bit faster. The first two could easily be attributed to me being a "ROOKIE" and my burnish technique works better on 8190.lol
Getting some 8190 put on my Answer once the bow gets fixed. Haven't heard a bad thing about it.
I put a set on my Pure and so far I really like the 8190. Gained a little speed and seems to be very stable.

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandad did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car.
8190 NEW KID ON THE BLOCK?????? Been around for years, a guy talked me into 452x cab and 8190 on string his ability must have been lacking just kept on streching peep rotation was terrible! I know the string makers have really steped up there game so it might be worth a try again
