how often should you replace your bow string? I just started shooting my bow again and my peep keeps turning, its been two seasons since I replaced my last one (winners choice), I'm thinking it might be time for a new one? am I correct or can it wait? thanks

Are they showing signs of wear ? Fraying ?

I usually replace mine when it starts to fray really bad even after waxing it really good and if the serving starts to wear bad. I would get a Wicked 1 String. I think they are $66 for a string and cable and they come with a 1 year warranty no questions asked. And you can get any color combination you want.

I never have to worry about it because I change bows too much! But if it is showing wear replace it. Its not worth damaging the whole bow...

Well my string really isn't too bad i don't think, but then again that is more of an opinion so who knows if it really is or not. I wax it regularly. the only thing that is bothering me is my peep site.
