Yes it matters!!
Strings are made from a flavor scale. They are made from plant lignen and will keep the scent from the plants. The flavor scale below will explain:
Red-Cinammon or Apple
Black-Licorice
Green-Ivy
Brown-Oak
Flo Green-Brier
You get the point. That's why camo is so popular b/c they are from a more natural lignen.
In some states you can't use Red strings b/c it's considered baiting.

I've got the red and black on mine and they are sharp. They certainly won't bother the deer.

Thanks for the replies, who are some reputable string makers that will prevent peep twist? I'm pretty sure my factory string is about done. Also should you always replace the cables when you replace the strings? My research is leading me toward Winner strings.

If you have a pink bow (like Shemane Nugent) the deer won't notice your string color.

Vapor Trail are very good. I think there is a person on the forums who goes by crackerized or something similar.

Mine are red and grey, Cinammon and sugar. Taste great when you are at full draw and gives a great surprise release when I chew through them!

I am switching my string to Ivy / Oak.... Seems like a good choice to me.

Whew...Red and Gray (cinnamon and sugar) are good choices IF there are no yellowjackets around. I was almost molested by several yellow jackets when I used a gray string. I learned my lesson. Never again.

Mine are black and brown- licorice and oak...the acorn scent of the oak strands lures in all the P&Y's in the area, which is how I kill them, I'm always at full draw tasting the licorice so just have to let the string go when they come in lookin for the eckerns.

:icon_1_lol: I hope he is not taking half of these posts with any legitimacy. That being said, turkeys DO see colors and movement easily, especially in a black blind background...So I try to use a dark string combo in the blind without netting. Seriously. Cheers, Dr. Bob
