More than likely the .088. The bigger size usaully works until I reserve I tend to like my serving a bit thinner than stock.

Most stock strings I've ever run across tend to be a little heavy on the strand count and use a larger diameter serving material - generally because they gear the bowstring towards the bowhunting aspect. Therefore I'd almost bet the .098 will work better in the case of a stock string. Just my opinion though.....:)

Wolfman,

It's impossible to answer your question positively without seeing the served string. But if you have to take a shot, go for the large throat G-nock and the odds are 90% in your favor.

Order the large ones. If you get them in black and they are too big I have some small ones that I will swap for them (but they must be black). Just PM me.

Thanks guys. I will go with the large groove and see. Like I said it's on a stock mathews string. Sorry Mike, but the wife likes to see em sooooo...they gonna be white. I have no doubt that the large groove will fit, just didnt want it to be too loose.

If the large size nocks are too large, build-up the nocking area with dental floss to fit. Works well.

If the nocks are too loose or too tight, stick them in a pan of boiling hot water and heat the nock. Not the shaft!! Snap the nock on the string and let it cool. If they are too loose to begin with. Heat one then pinch it closed a little and let cool. Then heat it again and snap it on the string to cool.
