Heat's Effect of String Material?

1192 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.

You said you maid the string without prestretching it. That probably is the problem. You need to stabilize a string and tension it before doing any loops or end servings or you end up with unequal strand lengths in the string. I make custom strings and I use both 8125 and 452x and dont have any problems with either of it.
