    Bow: 1st Gen Mathews TRX 38 57 pounds at 29.5 inches. Issue: After about 1000 shots, the d loop starts rotating to the point where I have to rotate the knots back inline with the peep, ( this is not a peep rotation issue) otherwise it misaligns the peep during draw. However, it takes real...

    Just got a new bow and the string is thinner then my old bowstring, should I adjust the nocks to the string (use hot water and pinch them together?) or just buy a new string that is thicker? I've never reserved a string, would this fix the issue, and if so, I would just need one of the...

    Good afternoon all, Tim from Devon here. I have a take down bow and each time I assemble it, I have to spend quite some time putting the string on, taking it off again, twisting it to get the right brace height, then putting it back on and measuring. Is there some way of maintaining the...

    I am just about out of my Brownell Braided Fast Flight 0.026 serving material and I’d like to replace it with BCY Power Grip or 62XS due to slipping issues. The FF at .026 works out for good nock fit, but it does seem to “flatten out” Which makes me wonder if I got .025 62XS or Power Grip would...
  5. Arrows & Strings
    Hello, trying to get back to archery since shooting last in 2015. I'm using a beginner winnex riser and sf long limbs at 28 lbs. However, I measured my draw weight and it was 34 lbs. My question is, is it safe to use fast strings like fast flight on my bow even if my draw weight is much more...
  6. Arrows & Strings
    Recurve strings have relatively longer end loops and there are twists in the string caused by serving the end loop. Is it reasonable to use a arrow or a tube to push the twists toward the ends and 'lock' them in the end servings ( before twisting and burnishing the bundles together)? I remember...
  7. Bow Tuning
    Recently had local shop put a new string on my RX-3 and I have noticed that When at full draw the bow feels less “locked back” and has a strong feeling of wanting to creep/jump forward. Could there be an issue with string? I have also had to reposition my peep twice since install due to...
  8. PSE Archery Discussion
    So PSE redesigned their yoke system on their new bows to all be one string, I just purchased a used nxt 33 and started wondering if I’d be able to update that cable myself so I can get the tunable yoke system in there. Didn’t know if anyone has experience doing that or if it’d be worth looking into.

    Hey all. Looking at getting new string and cables put on my Bowtech Realm. The bow is about a year and half old at this point and I’m starting to get a lot of peep twist as well as fraying. I wax my string every other time I shoot (I typically shoot at least 20 arrows every time I shoot). So my...
  10. General Archery Discussion
    I've decided to make my own strings and cables and am quite confused regarding end of string/cables serving and center serving materials. Let me first say that I will be using BCY X-99 material (royal blue and fluorescent purple, heard that colours matter), at 28 strands. My bow is set up at 42...

  13. General Archery Discussion
    So I was doing some close range shooting in my garage (2 yards) and my string fell off my cams. Everything felt ok up until I released. The string hit me in the arm really hard but other than that it seems like nothing broke that I can tell in the cams. The red cable slide flew off and I have...

    Good evening, i have bought 1 year ago a Bear Archery Grizzly recurve bow 55lb, 58'' Amo lenght, 58'' Stringh lenght. I've shot thousands of arrows with it and today the string broke (1 of the two) the string was the standard one who came packed with the bow itslef, it was a Dacron Flemish Twist...
  15. Traditional Archery
    Does anyone know why horsebow strings have large loops at the end? It is very hard to find good replacement strings so I just wanted to buy a normal recurve string from someone like proline or ABB and get it in the right length. But if the big loops are very important then that wouldn't be a...

    Ordered a Hoyt RX4 in Elevated II a couple weeks ago. Will need to get new threads once I break in the factory strings...what colors or combos do you think look great or accentuate the Elevated II pattern? There's no green in Elevated II, so my typical flo green sets are probably not going to...

    I'm putting a new Buckslayer string on my Diamond Deploy. I'm keeping the same peep distance and D loop. All things equal, I don't think I'll have to recheck my sight tape. Is my logic correct?
  18. General Archery Discussion
    How much are you guys paying for a string install and a basic set up if you have your own strings and take them to shop for install?
  19. General Archery Discussion
    I have been away from archery for many years and looking to get back into it and I am in need of some advice/help. I bought a Mathews Feather-Light bow brand new many years ago and only shot it a couple of times when it was new. It was then stored in a hard case in my garage since then and has...
