I just wanted to say thanks for the awesome strings and cables. I finally got them on my Bear Attack. I had a hell of a time finding a shop that had special modules for their bow press. But they are on and are TOP NOTCH. The bow is new to me and I put new strings, sight, and a rest on. It was a tack driver! First four shots at 20yards after installing my peep were on top of each other. Anyways great strings!!

To Whom it May Concern:
I just wanted to let you know how high in quality I have found your bowstrings/cables to be. Some time ago I purchased a cable and string set for my PSE Brute bow and I have been steadily shooting it since then. I have experienced no stretch and no "fuzzing" of the string. I also have, most importantly, experienced none of the classic serving separation that comes with some single cam bows. The factory string was replaced due to the fact that, within very few shots, the serving at the cam had separated and wear was becoming apparent on the string. I live over here in Vapor Trail country and can attest that they are an excellent string as I have put them on my bows in the past. I tried your product to give another company a try. I would definitely place your quality at the same level at a better price. A great product!

Piranha Custom Bowstrings,
Just wanted to let you know how much Kathy and I love our Piranha strings. As you know, we have a very active archery schedule which takes us all over California and the Southwest. A lot of the places we go too are pretty remote, and having reliable equipment is a necessity. We’ve tried strings from a lot of manufacturers and are pleased to say that for a combination of build quality, top materials and a guaranty of no peep twist and no stretch; Piranha can’t be beat. Add in the great customer service, and you can bet that we will be using Piranha for all our shooting needs. Thanks again.

Gear Review: Piranha Custom Bowstrings
by Al Quackenbush

Understanding how important having a quality bowstring on your bow may seem obvious, but please bear with me. Without a quality string and cables installed, your bow it will not perform to its highest potential. Brand new bows have factory strings installed and many archers just leave them on their bow. They are good, but not great. Your best bet is to go to a pro shop and have strings made or find a good string maker on your own. I was fortunate enough to find Eddy Erautt, the owner and string maker at Piranha Custom Bowstrings.
I met Eddy a couple of years ago through www.DIYbowhunter.com and we became instant friends. When he started his company back in 2010, we talked strings and my bow set up. Turns out we were both shooting the same brand of bow and he offered to set me up with a set of strings and cables. I passed at the time because I already had a new set of strings on my bow and liked the ones I was shooting.
In 2011, I purchased a used compound bow and the previous owner explained it still had the original string. Trust me, I could tell. The string, while intact, was frayed and thinner than custom strings I had seen. I went to the range and shot the bow and you could feel how sloppy the string performed and how slow the arrows were flying out of the bow. I called Eddy and he explained that the string on my bow was probably 18 strands where he uses 22 strands. He also sent me a set of strings and cables to test out on my bow. Now let me tell you, Eddy gets his strings to you quickly. He doesn’t rush the process, but the strings were in my hands in just a couple days.
After having my local pro shop install them, I hit their indoor range. Immediately I noticed a difference in performance. The bow didn’t have the sloppy feel to it anymore and there was a noticeable difference in arrow speed when I shot, too. I locked my peep sight in and the test was on.
Piranha claims that their strings are pre-stretched and there will be no peep rotation. After putting over 600 shots through the bow, I can tell you that statement rings true. The peep stayed where it needed to, no rotation and the strings performed extremely well.
String care is something I preach, as does Eddy. Bowstrings will dry out if you are not careful and he knows this far too well. While he now resides in Colorado, Eddy grew up in Southern California and he knows how the weather, temperature and extended use will affect a string. He also knows quality string making. One thing he explained to before I started shooting was to be sure wax my string after each practice. This has extended the life of my string.
Piranha Custom Bowstrings also has the best customer service. Many times I have had questions regarding string, or a bow that needs a new string and even my own bow. Eddy has always picked up the phone or returned my emails promptly. He makes it his goal to be certain that each customer is satisfied with his or her purchase. He cares about the performance of his strings and he’s just a downright nice guy with a wealth of knowledge.
