Heat's Effect of String Material?

1196 Views 26 Replies 15 Participants Last post by  EPLC
I've noticed that when I’m shooting in hot conditions, my peep over rotates. I adjust my loop to get the peep to line up and the problem is solved. However when I shoot indoors where it is cooler, the peep under rotates causing me to have to make adjustments to my loop to get the peep to line up. My string is made out of 452X. Is this just the natural of the 452X string material? Is there a string material that isn't "heat sensitive"? Or is the construction of the string to blame?

Thanks for your help in this matter.

Great question, and great literature javi, I have one question to add to this. What about black strings? do they move more than a light colored string in heat or sunlight? I overheard some shooters talking about string color and effects in heat. didn't catch it all and they left before I had a chance to ask them any thoughts on this?
