    Strings vary in price and quality. There are a handful of quality custom string-makers on here (AT) that run between $50 and $100 for a complete set (strings and cables), and let you pick your colors. Most shops will charge a fee to put on strings, especially if not purchased through them (I have paid about $25 for this). I picked up my own press years ago and now change my own strings, etc. Figure it has already paid for itself by now, plus I know how it was done.

    Man $70 for strings and install is a heck of a deal.

    My builder (JRH60) gets mine on for $60 or so and youth bows for a bit less. Great service and real fast at building them.
    Anyone else sick of working to support those who don't?
    Anyone else sick of obeying laws made because idiots don't care about facts?
    Anyone else sick of people telling you to be polite about everything?
    I'm wondering how we got to this point.
